Obituary

Anne Reeves was driven by her caring for and giving to other people. In her spare time, Anne gave her time and money to support homeless children, recruiting her network of friends and family to the cause. Through her dream job as a theater usher, Anne gave families and visitors a stress-free and enjoyable experience at Broadway shows. Anne gave her softball team a boost of spirits with a rallying cheer and would text her siblings at the end of each game about how many hits—and on good days how many RBIs—she racked up that day.

Anne was also a fighter. She overcame many obstacles in life through luck, grit, perseverance, and an innate knowledge of how to bring many of life’s puzzle pieces together. She found purpose and meaning in her life through her dedication to her work. Her career combined her giving nature and customer service skills with her deep love of the magic of show business and, specifically, Broadway.

At the age of 48, Anne Barbra Reeves died in her sleep at home in Montclair, NJ, during the weekend of August 9, 2019. Born in Atlantic City, NJ, she now joins her parents Judith Ann Reeves and John Paul Reeves, who also departed this earth too early. Anne is survived by her brother James Reeves, sister Kary Lewis, brother-in-law Gregg Lewis, and nephew Aidan Lewis.

A member of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 306, she supported many of the shows of the Shubert and Nederlander Organizations. She was particularly proud of working for Farinelli & the King, Phantom of the Opera, and The Lion King.

She was one of Bon Jovi’s and Def Leppard’s biggest fans as well as nearly any rock group from the 1980s. It’s no surprise that, of all the shows she had supported and seen on Broadway, Rock of Ages was her favorite. With talented casts, a fun story, and most importantly the music of her youth, the show filled Anne with nostalgic happiness that emanated from her face whenever she brought the show up in conversation. She enjoyed seeing movies in the theater, with Boba Fett of Star Wars being one of her favorite characters. Despite her fear of sharks, Anne was fascinated by Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. She loved her childhood cat Licorice and her own cat from adulthood, Frisky. She prided herself on her fandom of the Dallas Cowboys and made sure everyone knew of their latest victory or draft pick—even, and especially if, your allegiance lay elsewhere.

To honor Anne’s lively spirit, the family invites friends and loved ones to a Celebration of Life event on September 28, 2019. The event will be held in the Brecht Room at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square from 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM, with a brief celebratory program beginning at 5:00 PM. The family encourages attendees to wear t-shirts or jerseys that represent their favorite football team, Broadway show, or 80s rock band.

The family requests that instead of flowers, please make donations to one of her favorite charities: The Covenant House. You can donate in “Tribute to Anne Reeves” online or via check made out to the Covenant House, Anne Reeves Tribute, c/o Sandra Latchman, Donor Communications, 5 Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10001-1810. The family wishes to thank to team of IATSE Local 306, the Montclair Police Department, the Montclair Fire Department for their help in making sure that Anne’s final transition was respectful and dignified.

I am P Harikumar Ph.D, a scientist from Kerala State, in India.
My family and I had the good fortune to meet and interact with Anne as a young lady during 1982-1984 aട well as in 1998.
As l have golden memories as a research associate with John Reeves both at Roche lnstitute of Molecular Biology (RIMB) at Nutley and later at University of Medicine and Dentistry (UMDNJ), Newark. During both these occasion I was enamoured by the friendship and hospitality of Judy and John's family.

My wife Jaya, son Nishanth and daughter Lekshmy extend our deep sorrow and condolences in the untimely demise of Anne.
May her soul rest in Peace!

I just can't believe Anne passed away over the weekend, I'm totally heartbroken. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Anne was one of the most genuine, unselfish , caring human beings I've ever met. We met doing a Man-Raze Street Team event in East Hartford years ago and from then on she always included me in things. Over the years I've had some amazing experiences with her and met some really amazing people. I will never forget that she was the one that made my dream come true to meet Def Leppard... That day will always hold a special place in my heart. Anne truly was the genuine deal....I'm so fortunate I had her friendship. So here's to you Anne \m/
Rock it up there like you did down here. I will miss you Diva, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.
