Annie Schuyler

1921 - 2017 Obituary Condolences

Age 95, of Menifee, California, died of natural causes, on Tuesday, July 18, 2017, at Sunny Rose Glen, an assisted living facility in Menifee. Anne was the daughter of John Anderson Chamblin and Esther O'Neil Smith, wife of Norman Schuyler, all who preceded her in death.
She is survived by her daughters, Priscila Anne Zucca, of Menifee, and Penny Kathryn McIntyre, of Mission Viejo, California; six grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren.
Anne was born in Woodruff, Spartanburg, South Carolina, Friday, September 2, 1921. She had three older brothers, John (Jack) Anderson Chamblin Jr, Andrew David (Bill) Chamblin and Ernest Joel Chamblin. She was only two years old when her father died.
In September 1940, Anne was crowned Lotus Blossom Queen, at the Bird Island Water Gardens at the second annual coronation of the Lotus Queen.
She was a student nurse at Riverside Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida for two years. She didn't finish her education after her marriage November 9, 1942, in Jacksonville. She met Norman on a blind date with another couple. She was not Norman's date that night but was his from that day forward.
Six months after their marriage, Norman reported for service aboard the USS Princeton. Their first child, Priscilla was born during his absence and didn't meet him until she was almost a year old. Their second daughter Penny was born a little more than a year after his return.
Anne's greatest joys were her family, oil painting, and sewing. She loved creating beautiful dresses for her family. Painting was her passion. She would travel to Catalina every summer for the Catalina Art Show. She displayed her work and occasionally sold a painting. She became very good at portrait painting. She traveled to Arizona and other areas that were beautiful to paint. She loved painting the Indians who lived in the desert. She captured them on canvas as they went about their daily chores and also in portraits.
She loved animals and at one time had close to a dozen cats. She spent many patient hours rescuing cats and kittens: some that had been abandoned and many that were born in the wild. She designed her screened-in porch as a home for the cats. She would find people to adopt them, but often they ended up staying with her.
She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
There will be a Memorial Service on Friday, July 28, 2017, at 12:00 PM, at Miller-Jones Mortuary, 26770 Murrieta Rd., Sun City, CA 92586. Interment will follow at Riverside National Cemetery where she will join her husband in a shared niche.
