Anne M. Nonis, of Stoneham, formerly of Cambridge, died on December 24, 2020 at Care Dimensions Hospice in Lincoln after a courageous battle with cancer. She was 63 years old.

Anne was born on September 6, 1957 in Boston a daughter of the late Socrates and Thelma (Stamas) Nonis. She was a graduate of Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.

For 31 years Anne was a top executive assistant at Deloitte and Touché in Boston. She was once praised by an international global executive at Deloitte as "one of the best administrative professionals that I have ever come across anywhere in the world." For 16 years she was the beloved wife of Anthony DeBeradinis.

Young at heart, Anne was vibrant and beautiful. She loved her friends and family, fine dining, traveling, hiking, and exercising at the gym, reading, singing Beatle songs, long walks, and nature. Anne's love of animals began as a child with family pets and horseback riding. She soon found her calling to work for animals and advocate for them. Her rescue dog Topher brought great joy to her life and fueled her passion and commitment to improving the lives of animals. She volunteered at MSPCA's Nevin's Farm in Methuen and worked tirelessly with animal rights organizations to inform and motivate people to speak out for animals and bring about change. She signed petitions and called her legislators to fight inhumane practices and animal cruelty. She was inspired by a quote by Mahatma Gandhi: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

Anne loved people. Her strong values and experiences led the way to accepting people of all cultural backgrounds. She treasured her relationships with friends and family. But it was the simple things in life that gave her the greatest joy- the pockets of happiness found in taking long walks with her dog, admiring the beauty in nature, and appreciating life as it unfolded.

Anne described herself as tenacious. When starting a project, she never stopped until it was finished. She was the kindest person one could ever meet. She opened her heart to everyone and would go out of her way to help others.

Anne faced life's challenges with grace and dignity, never complaining or giving up. She will be remembered for her humility and strength of character. She loved life and lived it to the fullest and with purpose. She never lost her optimism and courage to keep fighting. Her resilience and strength were admired by all who knew her. She always hoped for the best and lived in the moment.

She leaves her husband, Anthony C. DeBeradinis; her sisters, Barbara T. Jais of Watertown, Evelyn A. Panos of Waltham and the late Nicolette Nonis; her nephew, Brenton Panos.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – a note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love, support and a verbal hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit to the funeral home should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
