Obituary for Anna Chaplow

Anna Theresa Chaplow, 98, was taken to heaven on July 17, 2018. Joyfully awaiting her were her parents Julia(nee Cygan) and George Calvet and sisters Chrysanthe, Helen Wingert, Shirley Blair, Elizabeth Lear, Julia Jonik and her brother George Calvet. They had to wait in line behind her daughters Chrysanthe Bamman and Claudia Chaplow who have been looking forward to the moment of their mother’s arrival. Her beloved husband, William R. Chaplow, always the gentleman was last in line, waiting patiently to greet her, embrace and kiss her and dip her as they danced on heaven’s kitchen floor.

Anna was born in Detroit and met Bill on a streetcar on her way to the Grande Ballroom in 1940. After some serious wooing, he sealed the deal and they married in the fall of 1944 in New Orleans after his last tour in the US Army.
Anna is survived by six loving children William R Jr. (Joanne), Anthony (Jina), Beata (Richard), Blaise, Josefa (Linda) and Fredrika (Mike). She is sadly missed by 20 grandchildren and 6 great-grand children, a host of beloved friends especially Yvette Perlman of Merritt Island.

Anna showed immense strength and love in all that she did. She was expert in her differentiation between tough love and a gentle nudge. Her greatest joy was her family. Her shining qualities were her faith, compassion, wit, humor, generosity, encouragement, and an operatic voice that could bring down the house. She was a natural entertainer and accepted opportunities to sing across a variety of venues. Classically trained in opera voice, Anna was most comfortable in a choir loft accompanied by an organist.

Her passing leaves heartfelt sorrow in all who knew and loved her.

We will joyfully celebrate the life of Anna at Holy Name of Jesus on July 20 at 11AM.
