OBITUARY

Anne Lyons passed away peacefully in her home on July 12, 2020 she was

85 years old. Anne was born on December 16, 1934, in Brooklyn, New York.

She was the third of five children born to Eugene Canal and Georgia Feldmann Canal. Sister to Patricia (deceased), Eugene, Georgia and Roger. She is survived by her beloved husband Tommy of 60 years. Loving mother of Juliann Lyons and wife Claire Loud, Patrick Lyons and wife Tracy, Maria Lyons-Pellechia and husband Robert. Grandmother of 3 loving girls, Celeste Lyons, Catherine Lyons and Kaitlin Pellechia, plus numerous nieces and nephews all of whom she loved very much. Anne was a loving, kind and generous spirit. She attended Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary School in Queens Village, NY. Then upon graduating from Jamaica High School, she began working for the Nabisco Co. in Manhattan. She then travelled across the country with her lifelong friend Ginger Stratton to San Diego, California where she worked for the Tuna Boat Association. Upon returning to New York after a year of adventures on the West Coast she worked for the Musicians Union in Manhattan with another lifelong friend, Anne Dargenio. While raising her children, she worked in civil service for Nassau BOCES, Board of Cooperative Educational Services. She spent the majority of her time working in special education at the Rosemary Kennedy Center, in Wantagh, NY as the assistant to the school nurse. Anne was someone who lived life and loved an adventure. She was also a devout Catholic who attended mass weekly. Anne was the matriarch of the Feldmann family. She brought family and friends together and created a lifetime of memories for all of us. With her girlfriends from Queens Village they created a tradition of meeting every 10 years regardless of the day of the week, starting on 5/5/1955. She was a member of a bowling league for many years, which she enjoyed tremendously. She was always a participant in activities and curious about health and well-being participating in tai chi, qi gong, yoga and meditation classes. Following her sense of adventure she made sure to take each grandchild on their own individual trip with grandma. Anyone who knew her also knew of her great love for Lake Willoughby in Westmore, Vermont, where she spent every summer for more than 30 years. The camp, “Loch Lyons” as she called it will always hold a lifetime of memories filled with music and wine on the front porch overlooking the beautiful sunsets of Lake Willoughby.
