Family Remembrance by Karen Dalaklis
Anne was a very devoted daughter to her parents who immigrated from Greece. They started a life in America not knowing the language and without any family, except an uncle in Chicago.
Anne quickly became part of the Kacamburas family. She grew up in Somerville, graduated from Somerville high school and began her career in advertising. She later bought a house in Arlington and began a successful career at Arthur D. Little before retiring.
Anne enjoyed going to estate sales and yard sales. There wasn't a gadget she didn't have! Her Toyota Camry was her "baby." She loved getting in her car and driving to explore different areas. Anne had a passion for travel and treasured the memories made along the way. She loved flowers and gardening. Anne loved to challenge Kay and Irene to Scrabble. Anne preferred going out to eat than cooking and looked forward to her annual Kacamburas New Year's Chinese dinner. Oh, and not only did Anne always have a plan, but a back-up and a back-up to the back-up!
Anne was a wonderful Noona to Karen and Kevin. She was a loving, compassionate, generous Godmother.
Anne was our "adopted" sister and aunt. We all love her and will miss her.
