Anna Marie Sanko

Nov 13, 1952 - Feb 23, 2024

West Hartford, CT

On Friday, February 23, 2024, Anna Marie Sanko passed away peacefully at age 71. Her beloved partner, Bill Curry, was by her side. She was a person of rare gifts; highly creative, utterly determined, capable of immense gratitude and joy. The cause of her death was ALS. In true form, she navigated the storm of that devastating illness and found her way home with courage and grace.Anna was born in Hartford and raised in the Elmwood section of West Hartford. She attended Saint Brigid Grammar School, Northwest Catholic High School, and the Pratt Institute in New York, where she earned a degree in design.Returning home to West Hartford, she worked for many years for the architectural firm Dubose Associates, designing thousands of square feet of commercial and industrial space. Anna loved her work and her community and often found ways to express both passions, as in her highly original work on First Night events.   In 1990 Anna had a truly brilliant idea, to teach math and other STEM skills to children, especially the disadvantaged, by showing them how to design practical things they might see or use in their own lives. She left a secure and rewarding job, earned a master’s degree in education and founded a nonprofit, The Architecture Resource Center, to support her work. She conceived the program, wrote the curriculum, built the organization, raised the money, and did all the teaching.Anna sustained this work for over thirty years, even in the final years of her illness. It won awards and attention from around the world. She presented to conferences across America and Europe. Asked to address the board of trustees of the National Endowment for the Arts, she used the occasion to conduct one of her classes, with the board members as her students. The members were thrilled. Anna’s modesty was such that friends not directly involved in her work knew little of her achievements, even as she reveled in celebrating their joys and successes. She was fiercely loyal to family and friends and leapt with selfless love to help any friend in crisis. Anna was always teaching. She leaves behind her partner and high school sweetheart, Bill Curry, to whom she taught the meaning of love, and the greatest loves of her life, her daughter Kuhneena Shanahan and her grandchildren, Triana Pytel and Tristan Shanahan, of Omaha Nebraska.Anna was predeceased by her parents, Mary and Ted Sanko of West Hartford. Other survivors include her beloved brothers and sisters, Richard Sanko, Marian Sanko, Patricia Lowry and her husband Mark, David Sanko and wife Diane, Jeane Loper and husband Bob; Kuhneena’s husband Scott Shanahan; her nieces and nephews, Brian, Laura and Eric Lowry; Daniel Sanko and Tracy Ferreira; Sarah Kusinski and Dennis Loper; her aunt Wanda Serafin; her cousins, Rob, Chuck and Paul Serafin, Nancy Barbour, Rose Wilson and Cyndy Madera; many cherished friends, including Madeline Bombetto, Jo-Ann Castano, Jill Jenkins, Frankie Marcikonis, Darlene Susco, Kathleen Tracy and Laurie Wattles; her devoted caregiver Relifs Esson; her hospice nurse Jill Cardone; and the dedicated board and supporters of the ARC.A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Saint Brigid Church, West Hartford, on Tuesday, March 5, at 11 am. The family will receive visitors at the Sheehan Hilborn Breen Funeral Home, 1084 New Britain Avenue, across from the Church, starting at 9:30 am. Burial will follow in Mt. St. Benedict Cemetery, Bloomfield.Anna asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Compassionate Care ALS,  PO Box 1052, West Falmouth, MA 02574, or online at CCALS.org.

location-icon

West Hartford, CT

"Kim Dickson was born January 17th, 1942 in Hartford CT to Robert and Ida Dickson (Rivoire), and spent nearly his entire life in West Hartford. Kim grew up in the Elmwood neighborhood with his parents and younger sister, Louise. At Hall High School in West Hartford Center, Kim met his future wife, Carol Deasy, and they began dating in 10th grade. They remained together through re-districting and the creation of Conard High, during his time at Trinity College and (starting in June 1963) through more than 60 years of marriage. Kim began his career in the mail room of the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company and went on to become an actuary there after college. Over the years, he moved through various executive positions, ultimately to Executive Vice President. After leaving CML in 1995, he went on to his next role as an investment advisor. Although Kim made his mark professionally as a senior executive in the “Insurance Capital of the World,” he will be most well remembered by those close to him for his kindness and his humility. He was a lifelong church member, volunteering countless hours to various committees and, most importantly, lending his instantly-recognizable tenor voice to choirs starting in 1957. Whether he was preparing meals for his family, coaching his grandchildren on sports teams, guiding friends through difficult times, or participating in a range of charitable activities— including Chairman of the Salvation Army Greater Hartford Advisory Board—he lived his life in the spirit of true servant-hood. John 13:12-15. Kim’s life hit a rough final chapter with a brain cancer diagnosis in August 2023. The treatment efforts ultimately were unsuccessful, but he continued to focus on caring for his family until the end. On Sunday, February 18th, Kim died peacefully at his home. Kim will be dearly missed. He is survived by his wife, Carol, his sons and daughters-in-law, Rob \u0026amp; Jeff, Kyoung-Hi \u0026amp; Jeanine, his grandkids, Liam, Christopher, Tim, Eliza, Mina and Kyle. And a dog named Nala. A service celebrating Kim’s life will be held at 11am on Saturday March 23rd, at the Flagg Road United Church of Christ (134 Flagg Road in West Hartford). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Kim to the Neuro-oncology Support Fund at the University of Connecticut Foundation, Inc.

Michael Wheeler

Apr 07, 1945 - Feb 17, 2024

location-icon

West Hartford, CT

Michael was a kind soul, generous with his time, hospitality, and humor. Before dawn on February 17, 2024, and in the company of his beloved daughter, Siobhan, he passed in the same humble, quiet manner in which he lived. And his was a full life well-lived.Born in Hartford on April 7, 1945 to Reynold and Gertrude Wheeler, Michael was the third of five children. He grew up with his family in a modest home on South Road in Farmington located on the land his relatives had farmed for two generations. There, Michael’s doting mother, who according to his sister June considered Michael her favorite child, nurtured his gentle manner. His father, a formidable man who by all accounts could (and did) build or fix anything, set a stern example of how to live to the exacting standards of the master craftsman that he was.As a child, Michael loved baseball. While his inability to hit a curveball ended his playing career too early, Michael’s love of the game never waned. As a devoted coach to his son Brendan’s Little League team, Michael dutifully pitched batting practice until he couldn’t lift his arm. He was a fixture in the stands as Siobhan and Brendan took to the diamond during their high school years. And of course, there was the Red Sox. Whether watching on TV at home or catching a game at Fenway, he reveled in the team’s ups and patiently endured their downs, never losing his sense of wonder in the magic they performed.As a student, Michael exhibited an uncanny agility with numbers. After graduating from Farmington High School in 1963, he attended St. Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont, where in 1967 he earned a bachelor’s in mathematics. Michael found a fit for his talents at The Hartford Insurance Company, where we worked as an actuary for over 20 years. At the outset of his career, he earned a master’s degree in mathematics from the University of Connecticut in 1973. As his career progressed, Michael even wrote test questions that appeared in the battery of professional certification exams all actuaries nationwide had to complete.Although he would never say so himself, Michael was an able marksman. In his youth, he won shooting competitions, sometimes bringing home a Thanksgiving turkey as prize. But as a young naval officer in Vietnam, his sharpshooting had a much more serious application. Michael served as the gunnery officer aboard the U.S.S. Westchester County, a flat-bottomed sea-going tank landing ship that could operate in Vietnam’s rivers. On November 1, 1968, he fought through the deadliest attack suffered by the U.S. Navy during the war, when Vietnamese frogmen placed mines below his ship’s waterline that exploded, ripping through the hull, killing 25 men onboard. Michael revered the U.S. Navy, cherished his service at sea, and honored all those who have served in the military.After his honorable discharge in 1970, Michael retuned to the Hartford area, where he met Bridget “Bridie” Ahern, a Kerry woman and nurse at St. Francis Hospital, whom he married in 1973. In February 1975, they welcomed the birth of Siobhan on the same day they closed on their house on Arundel Avenue in West Hartford where Michael lived for nearly 50 years in until his death. And two years later in 1977, Brendan was born, completing the West Hartford Wheeler clan.Michael soon settled into the familiar routine of suburban life -- family, work, school, church, summer weekends at the beach house at Old Lyme Shores with his brothers and sisters, and the kids’ sports and activities. To unwind from it all, he picked at the banjo and savored his long walks and bike rides through West Hartford. But without complaint, he paid the heavy dues familiar to every dedicated hockey parent – countless hours driving through winter weather to games, and countless more standing frozen in frigid ice rinks, offering his kids his warm, heartfelt support no matter the outcome of the contest.Most summers, Michael brought Bridie and the kids to Killorglin in County Kerry, Ireland to visit Bridie’s parents and siblings and their children. He embraced the charms of Irish country life, and won the hearts of the extended Ahern clan with his easy manner, “Yank” humor, and endless curiosity about Irish history and culture. He dreamed of building a house outside Killorglin. And from the first appearance of the Internet at his Arundel Avenue home until his death, Michael was a voracious consumer of Irish news, making him as credible a commentator on Irish affairs as could be found on this side of the Atlantic.Eventually, the seasons of his life changed, the kids graduated into careers on their own, and in 2009 the unthinkable happened: Michael’s bride of 36 years passed. It was at this time, with Brendan married and posted overseas, a father-daughter friendship for the ages grew into its own. Together, Michael and Siobhan traveled the length of New England, attending football games, hiking, picnicking, or just simply seeing the sights. They also traveled overseas to Ireland to attend family weddings or to wherever Brendan was posted at the time, including to Egypt for a thrilling trip up the Nile River and back into the age of the Pharaohs.In recent years, the consequences of Michael’s declining health tested his soul to its core. But instead of breaking him, the adversities he overcame revealed the bottomless depth of his faith, perseverance, and grace. And it is in celebration of his inspiring example of a full life well lived that we, his family, say farewell to Michael – a son, a brother, a father, a grandfather, a veteran, a friend, and now, a gentle soul taken to Heaven by God for blessed eternity.Michael is survived by his daughter, Siobhan Wheeler; his son, Brendan Wheeler and his wife, Gina Reynolds-Wheeler and their daughter, Lucy Wheeler; his brother, David Wheeler and his wife, Linda Wheeler; his sister, June McKeon and her husband, Charles Friedman; his brother, Joseph Wheeler and his wife, Patricia Watras; and his sister, Elizabeth Wheeler.Friends may call at The Ahern Funeral Home, 111 Main St., Rt. 4, Unionville on Wednesday (Feb 21), from 3 – 7 pm. Funeral procession from the Ahern Funeral Home will be Thursday (Feb 22) at 9:15 am followed by the Funeral Liturgy in the Church of St. Peter Claver, 47 Pleasant Street, West Hartford at 10:00 am. Burial with full Naval Honors will follow at Fairview Cemetery, West Hartford.In remembrance of Michael’s life the family asks that any charitable donations be made to St. Michael’s College. You can make donations directly at https://engage.smcvt.edu/give or by contacting the Office of Institutional Advancement at 888-448-7111 or giving@smcvt.edu.

Linda Maxwell Kuhnmuench Crowe

Dec 13, 1943 - Feb 13, 2024

location-icon

West Hartford, CT

"Whether you were telling her of heartbreak and disappointment or sharing joy and elation, Linda Maxwell Kuhnmuench Crowe always seemed to understand. And she would rejoice or mourn right along with you. She had a special capacity for compassion and empathy and, when needed, she stepped in and acted on it. Just days before Linda died, Jaime Jackson Larsen sent Linda this message: “Everything I have today is because you took me in and guided me through when I needed someone like you the most.\u0026quot; Linda passed away Feb. 13, 2024, in West Hartford, Conn. surrounded by the love of her sister, Suzanne, her sons John, Jeffrey, Zachary and Maxwell as well as dear friends who visited days earlier. She was 80. “Linda was a kind, loyal, generous and loving friend,” said Liz Florio, former neighbor and friend of 38 years. Born to John and Patricia Maxwell on Dec 13, 1943 in West Hartford, she was the oldest daughter among the family’s six children. She attended Putnam Academy and went on to graduate from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis. in 1967. She married John Kuhmuench and the couple had two boys, John and Jeffrey. The pair later divorced and Linda went on to marry screenwriter Christopher Crowe and moved to Los Angeles where she would live for more than 45 years. She and Christopher had two boys, Zachary and Maxwell. Linda was a devoted mother, making countless trips to Tar Pits museum, the tide pools at the beach in Tarzana, surf shops, craft stores and spent many an hour helping them with elaborate homework projects. “One thing for certain is that she loved her boys,” said close friend Sanna Stein. She was a consummate caretaker, pampering family and friends with exquisite cooking, insisting on the freshest ingredients, and was known to send one shopper back to the store with vegetables that weren’t up to her standards. She loved hiking in Coldwater and Laurel canyons near her longtime home in North Hollywood, and cherished times walking her beloved dog, Boxer, through the hills. Linda was an avid reader, a quiet intellect and happiest in later years when surrounded by her books — poetry, philosophy, history, spirituality, psychology. “So intelligent and innately wise,” Sanna added. Linda also suffered loss and trauma and struggled with strained relationships. But she was a survivor and most often used her hurt as a blessing to minister to other women in need of healing. Beauty for ashes. She sought solace and wisdom through dream work and wilderness excursions. She was courageous and loved to tell stories about her times sleeping alone in the desert. She took pride and pleasure in tutoring friends’ kids, reading them classic books and opening their hearts to the world in a special way. She loved scarves and all things cashmere, simple and elegant clothes. Sterling silver over gold. Dark chocolate. At 5’2” and never more than 110 pounds, Linda was petite in stature, but filled the space around her with kindness, love and laughter. A unique soul whose presence on earth will be deeply missed. Linda was preceded in death by her daughter Laurie Wade, brothers Robert, Jeffrey, John (Terry) Maxwell and sister Laurie Maxwell. She is survived by sister Suzanne Bailey-Gates, sons John and Jeffrey Kuhnmuench, Zachary and Maxwell Crowe, and grandsons Maxwell and Bodhi Kuhnmuench. A memorial is being planned for spring in Los Angeles. Donations can be made in her honor to the Alzheimer’s Association."
