Anne Gertrude Boring, 96, lifelong volunteer for American Red Cross

Anne Gertrude Boring, only daughter of Herbert Arthur and Anne Gertrude Tetreault, was born in Northampton, Massachusetts on August 2, 1919, and passed away in her home in Williamsburg, Virginia on December 15, 2015 with her daughters by her side.

Anne was predeceased by her parents, her older brother, Herbert Arthur, her husband, George R. Boring, Jr. (Col., USAF, ret.) and her daughter, Marsha J. Kyle.

She is survived by her brother, Arthur Harvey Tetreault and her four children: Richard A. Boring (wife Maggie), Patricia A. Moore (husband Charles), Steven A. Boring (wife Diane) and Betsy A. Scott (husband Robert).

Anne was a resident of Williamsburg for 16 years, having moved here from Annapolis, Maryland. She was not only an inspiration to her family, but also those who knew her both in Annapolis and at Patriots Colony, Virginia.

She was a truly remarkable woman and wasted not a single day on this earth, giving of herself to others and bringing joy to those around her. She was a lifelong volunteer for the American Red Cross, and more recently a volunteer at Historic Jamestown.

She was a selfless woman who even in her last weeks was more concerned about how others were doing. As she had an unwavering faith in God, she was looking forward to this, her last trip, for a permanent home in the arms of the Lord.

Mass will be offered at St. Bede Catholic Church, 3686 Ironbound Rd., Williamsburg at 11 a.m. Tuesday, December 22.

Please leave online condolences for the family at Nelsen Funeral Home.
