HARDY Anne Hardy Antell
a resident of South Burlington for the past six years, died May 10, 2012 of natural causes after living a full and active life for ninety-four years. Independent to the very end, Anne showed the same courage and determination in her final days that had characterized her entire life. Anne was born March 11, 1918 in Warren, Pennsylvania to Ruth Stowell Hardy and Claire Woodworth Hardy. She grew up in Elmira, New York, attending local schools before graduating from Connecticut College in 1940. Anne married Ralph E. Antell in 1942. Anne always wanted children and proceeded to have four with Ralph, raising them in Elmira, Lawrenceville, New Jersey, and Richmond, Virginia. Anne could not have been a more devoted and creative mother, creating an environment that made her children feel loved and protected while valuing education, travel, physical activity, and nature. Anne would always say that raising four children was her greatest achievement, but she was a woman of boundless energy, always looking for new interests, always looking to further her knowledge and education. She taught sewing, Sunday school, and skating to youth groups, took Spanish lessons, and became an excellent photographer. She volunteered at children's hospitals, working especially with children with cancer. Anne was awarded a Junior League volunteer award in Elmira in 1957 as well as a Volunteer of the Year award in Richmond in 1969. She wrote and published two books about her family, quite an achievement in the days before computers and word processors. When Ralph developed a neurological disorder in the late 1970s, Anne became his primary caretaker, amazing everyone with her determination to continue traveling with Ralph until around 2000 and then continuing to provide total care for Ralph until his death in 2005. Her love and devotion to Ralph was steadfast, and she continued to be known as a cheerful and positive person throughout that period and then again when she began a new life in Vermont in 2006. Anne was predeceased by her husband of sixty years, Ralph Antell, in 2005. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Patty and Will Andrews of New Orleans, Louisiana, Steve Antell and Barbara Leaf of Shelburne, Vermont, Rick and Susan Antell of Sherborn, Massachusetts, and Ruth and Steve McGehee of Atlanta, Georgia; as well as 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The family extends their heartfelt thanks to the staff of Allenwood and Pillsbury Manor South for their loving care and devotion to Anne throughout her final years. The family also very much appreciates the support of Claire Weiss and the staff of the VAN hospice program throughout Anne's final days. Arrangements are being handled by Stephen C. Gregory and Sons of Shelburne. In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to a charity of your choice . A small service for immediate family and friends is planned for Saturday, May 12 at 2:00 p.m. at Pillsbury Manor South, 12 Harbor View Road, South Burlington. Burial will take place at a later date in Elmira, New York. Star Gazette – May 13, 2012
