Anne (Annie) Heywood died peacefully on April 26. She was 75.

Annie was born in Holyoke, the eldest of three children of Carroll and Roger Heywood. She graduated from Duxbury High School and attended William Smith College, where she discovered her love of fine art. Annie attended classes at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston while she apprenticed at Richard Lufkin Company as an illustrator and calligrapher. After retiring from the Bank of Boston, Annie returned to Chappaquiddick, where she lived until her death.

Annie loved to travel, knit, photograph, and paint, but her fondest memories were the summers spent in the Chappy School House on Cape Pogue Pond dating back to the 1940s. She loved the Chappy life: clamming, scalloping, sailing, and beach plum jelly making — no Christmas was complete without a jar of Annie’s precious beach plum jelly.

Annie is survived by brothers Bart and Brad Heywood, nieces Brigid Bergholz and Ashley Allred, nephews Duncan and Nathaniel Heywood, and her six beloved great nieces and nephews.

A celebration of her life will be held on Oct. 7 at 4 p.m. at the Chappy Community Center. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Chappy Community Center.
