Anne G. Floyd

Anne G. Floyd, 88, of Newport, passed away Sunday, Aug. 28, 2016 at home, cared for by her daughter, loving friends and relatives, and the wonderful staff of Visiting Nurse Services of Newport and Bristol Counties.

Mrs. Floyd was born Nov. 19, 1927 in Wakefield, Mass., the daughter of the late Charles and the late Esther (Danforth) Getchell.

She was the wife of the late Culver J. Floyd to whom she was married to for 52 years.

Anne grew up in Lynnfield, Mass. and was a graduate of Colby Junior College. She moved to Middletown with her husband in 1960 when Culver took a job at Raytheon. She was a former partner of Iron and Pine, a gift shop on East Main Road and Brick Market Place. After her husband’s retirement they spent nearly three years cruising the East Coast and the Bahamas on their sailboat Reverie. Moving back to shore they settled in Plymouth, N.H., where she enjoyed her mountain garden for close to 20 years. She returned to Aquidneck Island and lived in Newport for the last 15 years. Besides being an avid gardener, Anne was a devoted dog lover, particularly her beagles.

She is survived by her daughter, Lynne Spingler (Henry) of Newport, and her son, Jay Floyd of Wakefield, R.I. She was predeceased by her daughter, Jane Floyd of Middletown, and her sisters, Marguerite Huff and Virginia Beebe.

Her burial will be private. Donations in her memory may be made to a charity of your choice. Condolences and additional information at memorialfuneralhome.com.
