Anne Louise Kennison died peacefully on May 20, 2020 at the age of 95. She was born in Jersey City, NJ to Armin & Helene Hoos on 3/31/1925. Her love of nature and Vermont brought her to college at UVM where she met her former husband Robert Kennison. Together they enjoyed skiing, camping, fishing, organic gardening and restoring old houses. Her independent , resourceful and frugal spirit remained with her throughout her life. She would harvest fiddleheads, elderberries, mushrooms and other wild edibles following the footsteps of Euell Gibbons, author of “Stalking the Wild Asparagus”. Her family & friends benefited from her bountiful organic garden & superb culinary skills. While listening to music, she braided & hooked rugs, quilted, sewed and enjoyed making many handmade crafts. Well into her 80’s ,she continued entering her creations into the judging at the Champlain Valley Fair.

When not involved with one of these activities ,she could be found biking, walking, XC skiing, snowshoeing & downhill skiing in any kind of weather. She participated in many fundraising events , one of which was biking from Washington state to San Diego raising money for the Lung Association. She volunteered extensively especially through her church organizations as well as Fletcher Allen auxiliary, Replays, Meals on Wheels and Ronald MacDonald House. She was the Salt of the Earth always willing to help.

She is survived by her children & families: Bradley & Jill Kennison, grandson Scott (Lindsay) Kennison and great grandson Syzer Kennison. Andrea & Craig Echo, grandchildren Stefan & Hannah Echo. Anne also leaves a “special daughter”, Sandra Illanes-Brochet from Antofagasta, Chile, who lived with Anne’s family from 1969-70 & remained very close, visiting Vt every year for the past 25 yrs.

She was preceded in death by her parents , sister Janet Sonntagg, and grandson Dana Kennison. The family would like to thank her providers, caregivers at Pillsbury South, and Bayada healthcare (especially Melissa) for the love , compassion and care they gave Anne.

There will be a private Celebration of Life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, Memorial contributions in Anne’s memory can be made to Essex Rescue Inc, 1 Educational Dr, Essex Jct, Vt. 05452. A W Rich Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
