Ann F. Hastings

Barre, VT — Ann F. Hastings, 68 passed away on April 29, 2021 at the UVM Medical Center.

Born on June 27, 1952, she was the daughter of Neil and Flora (Moulton) Hastings. She attended school in South Royalton, Vermont and graduated from Castleton University in 1974 with a degree in Social Work.

On May 9, 1992 she married Vaughn Works of Barre, Vermont. She was employed for over 40 years with various departments within the Vermont Agency of Human Services. She retired as an Assistant Director of Long Term Care with the agency in 2018.

Ann enjoyed gardening, flowers, baking, traveling, friends, pets, her co-workers and reading. She enjoyed her teapot and basket collections. Her greatest joy of all was her family. She loved her brothers, parents, children, husband and many cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles beyond all measure and would do anything for them. She especially loved our annual July 4th camping events at the Moulton family home in Corinth (owned since 1790), and generations-long wreath-making parties every December.

Survivors include her husband of 28 years Vaughn of Barre, VT; daughter Sarah and fiancé Kevin Lynch of Niskayuna, NY; brothers Walter and William (Paulie) of S. Royalton, VT; her dear cousin (sister!) Margaret Ames and husband Gerald, and many other relatives near and far. She is predeceased by her parents and her son, Neil Allan Works.

The family would like to thank all the wonderful staff at UVMMC's Surgical Intensive Care Unit, they are among the most caring and loving folks you could ever encounter. We would also like to extend our gratitude to Doctors Pineda and Marroquin, and Monique Citro of UVMMC for their expert care of Ann and her family during her stay.

Ann’s quiet ways, generous friendship, deep caring, and wonderful wit will be remembered and missed always. She was an enthusiastic travel companion and “game” to try new things. My life and the lives of those who truly knew her were made better for having known Ann Flora Hastings Works.
