Flood, Anne G. December 5, 1944 - December 6, 2022

Anne G. Flood

1944 – 2022

Anne Flood, a long-time resident of Pelham Manor and Greenport, NY suddenly passed away on December 6, 2022, in Pelham Manor, NY with her devoted husband by her side.  She was 78 years old, having been born in Brooklyn, NY on December 5, 1944, to Edward and Mildred (McPartland) Wennerholm, both from Brooklyn, NY.   Anne is survived by her beloved husband and partner of 52 years, James Flood, whom she married in 1970.  She is also survived by her brother Edward Wennerholm of Tarrytown, NY, her sister-in-law Monica Aragona, her sisters Mary Wilson (Tom) of York, PA and Ellen Chinnici (Michael) of Cold Spring Harbor, NY, her sisters-in-law Margaret Flood OP and Mary Flood OP MD both of Blauvelt, NY, her cherished children Elisabeth Byrne (Edward) of Cos Cob, CT and John Flood (Jamie Grosz) of Denver, CO.  She was the proud grandmother of Kyra (d), Ava, Dane and Aria Burnstine, Leo Flood, and step grandchildren Sophie and Quinn Byrne.  She was the much-loved aunt to numerous nieces and nephews.  Anne was predeceased by her parents and her granddaughter Kyra Anne.

After graduation from St Brendan’s Diocesan HS, she earned degrees from St Vincent’s School of Nursing (RN) and Marymount Manhattan College (BA).

Anne spent the bulk of her career as an RN in several NY hospitals, as a Director in the Home Health Care Agency field, and as a stay-at-home mother when her children were in elementary school.

She had been a founding Member of the Pelham Nurses Network Respite Program, which provided services to NYC families with handicapped children.  She led a local campaign to prevent closing a Pelham grammar school by organizing an army of volunteers to conduct a student survey that demonstrated the right number of grammar school buildings for the district.

Anne was widely known for her generosity, kindness, sage advice, and her selflessness.  Throughout her life she had beautiful and treasured friendships. She was a mentor, a teacher – someone anyone would be lucky to call friend.  She will be forever missed.

A wake for Anne will be held on the 13th of December from 2 – 4 pm and 6 – 8 pm at Fred H. McGrath & Son Funeral Home; 20 Cedar Street, Bronxville, NY 10708.  A funeral Mass will be held on the 14th of December at 10 am at Our Lady of Perpetual Help; 575 Fowler Avenue, Pelham Manor, NY 10803.  Interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery; 10 W Stevens Avenue, Hawthorne, NY 10532.

    Anne was a shining star in the lives of SO many, especially, my dear friend, her sister Ellen. I remember meeting Anne for the first time when I was 19 and she made me feel welcome always. My condolences to Jim, Elisabeth, and John, the Wennerholm and Flood families, and all who love Anne. May she rest in Eternal Peace!

    Ann was giving, caring and compassionate.
    I first met Ann at the New Rochelle diner for an interview, (she sat in for our Administrator.)She was so warm and easy to talk with. 1st week on the job her daughter Liz was getting married, not wanting me to feel left out Ann extended me an invitation, that’s just who she was, always so thoughtful.
    Ann would not hesitate to give up something she thought would make a difference in another person’s life- she would get the best gifts at the Christmas secret Santa games, Ann would not hesitate to pass that gift onto someone else if she felt that person needed it.
    We worked together for many years, she was always a Lady!
    Ann you will always be fondly remembered.
    My heartfelt condolences to Jim, Liz, John and the family.
    Sleep on and take your rest Ann, your memory will live on forever 🙏🏽
