Ann M. Luchini, 77, of Woburn, died peacefully, Sunday, June 2nd, with family by her side, at the Sawtelle Hospice House in Reading. She was seventy-seven years of age.

Born in Malden, Ann was the beloved daughter of the late Peter and Elena (Fenoglio) Luchini. She was educated in Boston and was a graduate of Rosary Academy in Watertown, MA. Ann continued her education at Emmanuel College where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in  Education, later receiving her Masters in Education from Cambridge College.

As an art teacher for 37 years in the Woburn School System, Ann inspired her students daily, by teaching them to always think outside the box and be as creative as they want to be. Ann loved the visual arts and practiced drawing, painting, and photography.  

Ann became very active in the Woburn Teacher’s Association during the seventies and eighties.  Serving as President for a good part of those years Ann always had the best interest of all teachers at hand.  Ann was highly respected amongst her colleagues and peers at every level of the school system.  Ann’s demeanor needed to be  emphatic at times, but  always showed great dignity, class, patience and respect  to all.

Ann enjoyed spending many happy years with family and friends at her home on Lake Winnipesaukee.  This was her place of  relaxation,  thinking,  contemplation and an environment where she thoroughly enjoyed choosing  different book genres to read.   Ann was an avid traveler, all throughout her life!    Making it to all seven continents throughout the world, including Antarctica, where she and her shipmates found themselves in the middle of a rescue in the Southern Ocean!   All Ann’s travels were wonderful adventures which she so enjoyed. 

 Ann made friendships that were lifelong and was determined to live life to the fullest. She fought bravely, quietly and privately to the very end of her life.  To those who had the pleasure of knowing Ann,  know how dearly she will be missed. 

Ann is survived and will be deeply missed by her brother, Peter J. Luchini of CT. Loving aunt of Mark Luchini, his wife Gail of Newburyport, Ann Drew and her fiancée Steve Bornick of ME, Clifton Drew, his wife Megan Jones of Nova Scotia, Edward Luchini, his wife Amanda of ME, David Luchini, his wife Lisa of CT and Sheryl Luchini, her partner Warren, also of CT. Adored great aunt of Laura, Michael, Matthew, Alexander, Juliette, Benjamin, Alice and Bella. Cherished friend of Karen Distefano, Hank Garvey and Patty Bosia, among many others.

Along with her parents, Ann was predeceased by her sister, Clare Drew.

    I had Ms. Luchini all through my time @ Reeves Elementary. She was an amazing teacher, one who had the ability to make all kids–artistically inclined or not–enjoy her classes. I still have a project I made in her class in 5th grade.

    My deepest sympathies to her friends and family during this difficult time. Try to find solace in your great memories of her and in the comfort of one another.
