Ann Louise Burnaby, at 69
Attended by her husband and two sons, Ann Louise (McAllister) Burnaby died on May 19 due to pneumonia that was complicated by metastatic breast cancer. She was 69.
Mrs. Burnaby was born in Dedham to Mary and George McAllister. She attended Dedham High School and graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1970. Ann and her husband, Laurie, met at the college and were married on July 8, 1973. They resided in Millis, where their sons were born, for 15 years. 
After living in Hingham for 21 years, they retired to Hull, where Mrs. Burnaby loved the ocean, the beach, her wonderful new neighbors, and still being close by her dear friends in Hingham. 
Mrs. Burnaby worked in the Curry College Development Office for several years before finding an outlet for her creativity in furniture sales at Macy’s in Braintree and Hanover. She was an avid gardener and a talented artist and crafter. She created beautiful gardenscapes and especially enjoyed painting, egg decorating, and knitting. She loved travel and was always seeking new experiences. 
Mrs. Burnaby is survived by her husband, Laurie; sons Aaron Burnaby, of Dedham, and Trevor Burnaby and his fiancée,  Amanda Cheney, of Hanover; and sisters-in-law Priscilla and Betsy Burnaby of Marblehead.
