Obituary for Anna Burn

Anna M. Burn, 85, longtime resident of Enfield, beloved wife of Don Burn, passed away holding hands with her one true love on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at Stonebrook Village in Windsor Locks. Born in Schenectady, NY on September 28, 1934, she was the daughter of the late Angelo and Elizabeth (Fusco) Grasso and grew up in Schenectady. She married Don Burn more than 64 years ago and they chose to make Enfield their home in 1962. Since then, Ann, as her friends called her, and her husband were active members of Calvary Presbyterian Church, with Ann serving in various roles in the music ministry including singing Alto in the church choir, playing in the adult handbell choir, and directing the children’s bell choir. Music was a large part of her life, whether playing “Claire de Lune” on her organ at home or humming “Sunshine On My Shoulders” while painting a bedroom ceiling. Ann worked as a cashier at several local grocery stores and was sure to brighten each customer’s day as she listened intently to their stories and welcomed them into her extended family. She celebrated life to the fullest and had a special gift that could lift spirits with a smile and a wink, whatever the situation. Ann gave of herself in many ways, volunteering in the Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts when her children were younger. She taught ceramics classes out of her home and had a passion for cooking and baking, a love that she passed on to her children and grandchildren. A loving wife, devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, Anna will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Besides her husband Don, she leaves four loving children: Donna (Burn) Gagnon and her husband Raymond of The Villages, FL, David Burn and his wife Roberta of Berlin, Douglas Burn and his wife Cindy Trout of Broomfield, CO, and Darren Burn and his wife Rowena of East Windsor; six grandchildren, Matthew and Devin Gagnon, Sean and Stefan Burn, Avani Joy Visone, and Alan Burn; six great-grandchildren; and her brother, Angelo Grasso and his wife Marcia of Scotia, NY. She was predeceased by four siblings, Joseph, Anthony, and Connie Grasso, and Mary Samek. Family and friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Sunday, January 19, from 2-4 PM at the Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield. Her Funeral will be held on Monday, January 20, at 11 AM at Calvary Presbyterian Church, 1518 King St., Enfield. Burial will follow in Hazardville Cemetery, Enfield. Memorial donations may be made to The American Heart Association. For online condolences, please visit

Mr. Don, Donna, David, Doug and Darren
I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Ann. She was like an aunt to me, part of our family for over 50 years. She was a wonderful, caring and helpful person, you could always count on her to help out. She was always there with a meal or a homemade decorated cake for any occasion(my wedding cake). My condolences to all of you at this difficult time, but may all your memories sustain you through this time. Barbara Kinnin McClure
