Anne Flaherty Obituary

Anne Flaherty Obituary Draft

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Anne Marie Brisebois Flaherty, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, on March 11, 2024, at UMass University Hospital in Worcester. Born on September 6, 1958, to Deacon Roland Brisebois and Mariette I. Caron Brisebois, Anne's vibrant spirit and joyous voice touched all who knew her.

Anne was the loving sister of Jacqueline Chaplin, Douglas, David, Mark, Roland "Sonny" Jr., Joseph, and William Brisebois, and she held a special place in the hearts of her beloved sisters-in-law Janice, Donna, Pauline, Elizabeth, and brother-in-law George Chaplin, along with many beloved nieces and nephews.

Anne's legacy continues through her loving children, Brian A. Brisebois and Sarah E. Brisebois, and her adored grandchildren, Robert and Alexandra Brisebois. She shared countless moments of joy and laughter with them, leaving behind memories that will forever be cherished.

United in marriage to John H. Flaherty Jr., Anne embraced her extended family with open arms, becoming a beloved mother-in-law to Margret Flaherty and sister-in-law to Joanne and James Erickson, and a caring step-mother to Joseph, Jacqueline, Jack, and Michael.

A proud graduate of Fitchburg High School, class of 1976, Anne furthered her education at Mount Wachusett Community College, earning an associate degree in Information Technology in 1986. Her early career was marked by her passion for music, performing as a professional singer with “Kenny and Anne” and “Champagne East” from 1976 to 1984.

Anne's remarkable career journey continued as she transitioned into the corporate world, thanks to the State of Massachusetts Job Training Partnership in 1993. She made significant contributions to HealthAlliance Hospital as a business administrator before taking on roles at Microsoft Corporation.  Over ten years, Anne excelled as a Microsoft Operations Manager across the Federal Sales, Educational Sales, and Telecommunications Divisions, earning respect and admiration for her leadership and dedication.

A lifelong singer, Anne's love for music was evident through her participation in the choir at St. Camillus Church in Fitchburg, MA, where her voice continued to uplift and inspire.

A memorial service will be held at Lavery Chartrand Alario Funeral Home, 99 Summer St. Fitchburg MA, on [Date and Time], with blessing by her priest Father Dolan.  

Anne's warmth, laughter, and love for her family and friends will be dearly missed but never forgotten. Her life was a beautiful melody that resonated with many and will continue to echo in our hearts forever.

Calling hours for Anne will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2024 at the funeral home from 5 until 7 p.m. followed by a prayer service. All friends and relatives are welcome to attend.
