Anne Frances Hyland’s amazing journey ended on 7/31/2020.  Beloved daughter of Jim and Anna Engels, Anne was born and raised in Clifton, NJ.  She was a 1958 graduate of Clifton High. While working in Gimbels she met the love of her life (William) Roy Hyland.  Married June18, 1961, Anne and Roy celebrated 55 years of marriage before Roy passed in 2016.  Anne and Roy raised their two daughters in Ringwood, NJ where Anne was involved in many community activities.  Once their girls were “out of the nest” Anne and Roy relocated to Stamford, CT.  Long time members of Stamford Yacht Club they were both avid sailors.  Upon Roy’s retirement from GTE they moved to Venice, FL and were active residents of the Venice Golf and Country Club for over 25 years.  Many friends and memories were made there.  Of late, Anne was a resident at Cadbury Park.  The family would like to give a special thank you to the Cadbury Park Staff for their outstanding care when Anne resided there.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Laura and husband Keith Wicks, and Lynne and husband George Hamm.  Anne was blessed with three super grandchildren: Kelly Rothermel and her husband, Josh, Sarah Wicks and Michael Pierce.  She was proud to be known as Gigi to her great granddaughters Skyler and Anikah Rothermel.  Anne loved all of her family dearly.  Anne is also survived by her cousins Bill Kneringer and family, Jim Brach and family and Tom Brach, nephew Mike Lanza and family and brothers-in-law Ron and Rick Hyland and their families.  She was predeceased by her parents Anna and Jim Engels, her beloved husband Roy Hyland, sisters-in-law Claire Lanza and Dorothy Hyland, cousins Maureen Brach and several aunts and uncles.  Anne’s was a life well loved.

We were fortunate to have raised our families in the beautiful Ramapo Mountains and were so happy when Anne and Roy followed us to Florida upon retirement. We loved them, treasured their friendship & always looked forward to our family get-togethers and Saturday night card dates. Our son Keith was blessed with the most wonderful in-laws possible, and we are thankful every day that Laura is part of our lives and love her dearly. Betty & Nelson

i have often thought of mrs. hyland these past few years. i am sad to hear of her passing and regret we never got to reconnect after she left Vgcc. she loved her family and roy so much-the disney cruises were a big highlight of hers. her gregarious nature, her generosity and thoughtfullness, her funny stories and her mad jewelry making skills will be what i remember her for. both she and her husband were the best kind of people. rest easy, ann and sincerest condolences to all who loved her.

Anne was a wonderful friend and we shared many enjoyable dinners at our local Venice restaurants. She invited us to join their monthly Bingo table when we were newcomers to the club. Her warmth and graciousness knew no bounds. Both she and Roy will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathy to her extended family. God Bless. Sue & Rich Bartholomew

I’ll miss you Aunt Anne. I’ll always remember the summers on the sailboat. They are some of my fondest memories of my childhood. I was blessed to have such a wonderful Aunt and Uncle that included me on their family vacations. May God bless the entire family during this difficult time. You will continue to be in my prayers. Love, Mike
