Sadly, Anna Chamot has succumbed to her fight against cancer. She was diagnosed mid-summer and put up a valiant fight with her trademark class, grit, and determination to succeed, damn the odds.  The ordeal proved to be too much, and she left us November 2. Arrangements are being made and will be announced as soon as they are ready.
She is survived by her only son, Alain, and his wife Carol. Her two beloved cats will be slowly introduced to his two cats, for a blended feline family!
