She was born in Burlington, June 5, 1927 daughter of the late Eugene and Orena (Fleury) Seguin.

She was a member of the Ladies of St. Anne, Retired Central Vermont Veterans Auxiliary, V.F.W. and American Legion Auxiliaries. Anna enjoyed working at several local businesses, Ferland’s Market, Doubleday Furniture Store and our favorite Western Auto Store on Main Street, where many of our Christmases came from! She married Reginald C. Lanoue, Nov. 28, 1946. Reggie and Anna enjoyed many fun vacations with their many friends. We as their children, experienced many family vacations. After Reggie’s retirement, they moved to Florida where they resided for fourteen wonderful years. They returned to Vermont in 2000. Anna lost the love of her life, Reggie, on July 7, 2002. Her daughter Sue looked after her mom and made her comfortable in her home and cared for her for six years. Anna spent a lot of time at Care Partners during the week so Sue could work. She had two wonderful caregivers Stacy Gaudette and Linda Hobb who helped with her care at home. She had lived with her caretaker Diane Beauguard for one year before that. We were very fortunate in 2014, Kings Daughter’s received mom as a tenant at their beautiful home for ladies. This is where mom had the best care after living with Sue. She absolutely loved it there. Anna spent a lot of time enjoying bingo and cards, which were her favorite pastimes. Anna was there for three years and passed there with her family by her side and the loving care of their wonderful staff.
