Ann Marie Pagnoni “Pags” Kaplan, 75, was peacefully welcomed into Heaven on Monday,
May 27, 2019 surrounded by the love of her family.
Ann was born June 1, 1943 in Springfield, MA to Amedeo and Helena (Diggins) Pagnoni. She
went on to graduate from Sacred Heart High School in Springfield before marrying the love of
her life, Sam in 1967. Shortly after, they moved to Enfield, CT to raise their family.
After raising her children, she enjoyed working at the Springfield Union News in the advertising
dept., Caldor, and Society for Savings Bank before eventually retiring as a secretary from
Hamilton Sundstrand after 11 years.
Her many interests included painting, gardening, traveling, reading and of course shopping.
She took great pride in her sense of style with clothing and jewelry. In recent years she really
enjoyed dining out, with special friends or relatives and especially with the girls from the old
neighborhood, her “lunch bunch”. She loved the sun on her face and the sand on her toes,
which she was able to enjoy during her annual winter getaway with Sam to Florida. She also
cherished family time spent together, especially with her grandchildren.
This beautiful angel had such a gentle spirit and generous soul but was also fiercely strong
which allowed her to overcome several struggles in her life, and ultimately gave her the
strength and courage to fight like a champ until the end. All who knew her loved her simple but
elegant sweetness and she will be dearly missed but never forgotten, always in our hearts.
She leaves behind many treasured friends and family whose lives she touched.
Besides her devoted husband of 52 years, Sam, with whom she recently moved to Windsor
Locks, CT., she leaves behind her daughter Kristine Kaplan of Enfield, CT, her son Eric (Fiorina)
Kaplan of Wallingford, CT., her treasured Angel Boys, her grandsons Sammy and Cameron,
her niece Nancy Halligan of Enfield, CT. and nephews Michael (Beth) Halligan of South
Windsor, CT and Tom (Kim) Halligan of Somers, CT as well as several cousins. She was
predeceased by her sister and best friend, Helene Pagnoni Halligan in 2014. We love you
forever and always, Nana.
A celebration of life service will be held Saturday, June 1, 2019 10am-1pm at Browne Memorial
Funeral Chapels in Enfield, CT. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made
to the American Lung Association, 45 Ash St. E. Hartford, CT 06108-3272

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Ann. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)

Your forever friend Shirley Heeb
