Born Anne Meloni on July 28, 1937, she was raised in Port Chester, New York and spent her adult life in Westport and Greenwich.
She graduated from Port Chester High School in 1955 and went on to study voice in New York City, singing on “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “The Ted Mack Show.”
She continued singing and was active in community theater in Port Chester, performing in “The Pajama Game” and “Guys and Dolls.” She shared her gift of singing at weddings and funerals, always accompanied on piano by her sister-in-law, Celia Meloni.
She was the loving, devoted mother of three children, Scott, Stephen (Lisa) and Leslie (Patty), and three grandchildren, Julia, Emily and Liam. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren and was always there to share their joys and difficulties.
She was predeceased by her brothers, Eugene, Anthony and Vincent Meloni, all of Port Chester.
Anne had a flair for fashion, and started a career later in life working at Saks Fifth Avenue in White Plains, New York in 1984 as a sales associate, where she excelled and when the store opened the Fifth Avenue Club, Anne was the perfect choice for lead sales associate.
In 1990, Anne moved to Westport and continued her career in fashion working for Mitchells of Westport.
It was in Westport, in 1992, that she met the true love of her life and married her husband, Mick (Stewart) Mosebrook, former executive vice president of sales at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, who predeceased her in 2005.
Together Anne and Mick enjoyed a life together full of romance and passion as they traveled the world together with friends and Pfizer colleagues. Some of their best times together were just being together in the beautiful home they built together.
With her warm heart, gentle soul and wonderful sense of humor, she instantly made everyone feel welcomed. Her family will miss her love, laughter and generous spirit more than words could express.
