Anna D. Alfieri Fuest

October 26, 1932 - July 5, 2020

Age 87, of Warsaw, passed away on July 5, 2020 at her daughter’s home, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born October 26, 1932 in Warsaw, daughter of the late James and Elizabeth Celona Alfieri. Anna worked for many years as a child support caseworker with the Wyoming County Department of Social Services. Prior to that she was a reading teacher’s assistant and cafeteria monitor at Wyoming Central School. Anna was a long time member of St. Michael’s Church in Warsaw.

Following her marriage to her late husband, John F. Fuest, they lived on the family farm on East Road in Wyoming until retirement in 1984. They then moved to Liberty Street in Warsaw where she resided until her death.

Chocolate chip cookies were her gift of thanks to all that touched her life. She was an avid bowler and enjoyed golf as a hobby. Routinely watching the New York Yankees, she was a number one fan. She loved dogs and they loved her. Her pockets were always full of treats. But, her greatest treasures were her children. A more devoted mom could not exist!

Anna was predeceased by her beloved husband, John F. Fuest who died December 23, 2007.

Surviving are her children, William (Ursula) Fuest of Pavilion, Deborah (Dennis) Kirish of The Villages, FL, Robert (Kate) Fuest of Warsaw, David (Darlene) Fuest of Warsaw, Diane (Janet Stubley) Fuest of Warsaw; her brothers, Joseph (Sharon) Alfieri of Connecticut, James (Donna) Alfieri of Florida; her sister-in-law, Bea Tilton of Warsaw; her grandchildren, Gretchen, Lisa, Nicholas, Jennifer, Christina, Catherine, Farren and Jared; twelve great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.

There are no calling hours. Anna’s Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday, July 9 at 10 AM at St. Michael’s Church, Warsaw (limited to 33% capacity of church with facemasks required). Burial will be in St. Michael’s Cemetery, Warsaw. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Animal Friends at Wyoming County Animal Shelter, 4380 Route 19, Silver Springs, NY 14550.

Jul 6.20 from Bonnie Thiers:

    I am so sad to hear about your dear Mom.
We had many laughs working together at the Child Support Unit. She lectured me on the importance of going to church, praying, and even made me palm crosses that she hand delivered to my house. I enjoyed those times and her caring words. 
      If you can believe this, we went to a concert together in Rochester. She talked about it in the office for months. Such a great time.
        We enjoyed kidding Annie about her dear Sullie saying he got better meals than we fed our kids.
Such good times.
        I enjoyed meeting her at the park for walks and hearing how she enjoyed her family getting together each week.  And, yes, I also loved her chocolate chip cookies.
        Finally,  a question that I asked her several times over the years and never got an answer, only a laugh, just how many books do you have now as we always met up at the library tent sale and garage sales and she was always buying books. . I knew she must have a list!!! 
      Annie, you left me with so many wonderful memories.  Love Bonnie
