Anne Stockton Milnor of Peabody died peacefully on Feb. 21 at Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers. She was 87. In her final days she was surrounded by her loving husband, four children and their spouses, and her grandchildren. In addition to being both a nurse and social worker, Anne’s passions included: her delight in her five granddaughters; her fierce independence of spirit and mind; reading; women’s rights; Martha’s Vineyard; and the women’s group she formed and nurtured at the Brooksby Village senior living facility in Peabody.

There will be no funeral services at this time. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Anne’s memory may be made to Brooksby Village Staff Appreciation Fund, 200 Brooksby Village Drive, Peabody, MA 01960. Arrangements are under the care of the Shaw-Majercik Funeral Home in Webster.
