Anne Hallowell Obuck
July 9, 1936 - July 28, 2018
82 years old of Ossining, NY Passed away of natural causes on July 28, 2018 at 1:08am at Phelps Memorial Hospital, Sleepy Hollow, NY.
Born July 9, 1936 in Brooklyn, NY to Walter Hallowell and Anne Dorman Hallowell.  She spent her early years in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, the shores of Breezy Point, Queens, and on the streets of Manhattan where she honed her skills in photography. She often spoke of fond memories visiting her maternal grandfather’s house, John Dorman, who was New York City’s Fire Commissioner, 1926-1934. She graduated Marymount Manhattan College, New York, NY with an English Major. She married Robert M. Obuck on April 22, 1972 and moved to White Plains, NY.
She lived with her husband and raised her two children, Suzanne Obuck and Christopher Obuck, in Pleasantville, NY. She always loved books and held a long career in the publishing industry chiefly as a Production Manager. In more recent years she moved with her husband to Ossining, NY where she found a warm and welcoming community.  Since moving to Ossining she became an avid volunteer serving many roles such as reading to children and serving Phelps Memorial Hospital.  At Phelps Hospital she first served in the Silver Spoons Program, feeding patients who required assistance. She later served as a patient advocate ensuring the best care for in-patient services. However, her longest held and favorite role was as part of the hospital Chaplain’s office.  Whenever she met a patient with a bible on the nightstand, she knew she would have a good conversation.  A life-long Roman Catholic she converted to the Episcopal Church later in life and loved to share her faith with others.
She is survived by her husband, Robert M. Obuck, her children Christopher Obuck and Suzanne Obuck, her sister, Elizabeth Valentino, and her brother Lincoln Hallowell.  She is predeceased by her brother Walter Hallowell.
