Anne V. Kaizer

September 18th, 2018

Anne V. Kaizer (Whitehouse), age 81, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on September 17, 2018, at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington.

Anne was born on May 21, 1937, in Darlington, England; she was the cherished daughter of the late Charles and Ethel Whitehouse. Anne was raised and educated in Darlington, and she always spoke of many wonderful childhood memories. In 1962 at the age of 25, Anne, ventured to the United States to see what America had to offer; she settled in Billerica, MA and took a job in Cambridge, MA. Anne journeyed to work by train and was met every evening by a handsome taxi driver named Sidney Kaizer; the two talked every evening on her ride home and soon their friendship blossomed into love and they were married in 1965.

Anne and Sid settled in Wilmington; the couple raised a wonderful family and shared over 48 years together before Sid’s passing in November of 2013. Anne was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend; she went out of her way to help anyone in need and she never expected anything in return. Anne’s unconditional love for her children, their spouses and her grandchildren was unwavering; Anne cherished the time they spent together and she looked forward to going out with them whether it was for a drive, out to dinner, a family holiday or vacation she was happy to be with her family.

Anne was very giving and kind when it came to others; she took care of many friends and neighbors who were ailing or in need of help and she was glad to do it. Anne provided “hospice” care to several friends throughout the years; she was always trying to make them as comfortable as she could during their last months, weeks and days.

Anne was a woman of great faith and an active communicant of St. Dorothy’s Church for many years where she was regularly attended Mass on Holy days as well as 7:30 Mass on Sundays. Anne could be found at the back of church after Mass chatting with friends; she always had a big smile and a friendly “hello” towards everyone.

Joyce Dalton was one of Anne’s closest friends. They enjoyed their nearly daily tea times as well as Friday bingo games at the senior center. She also enjoyed her regular get-togethers with her past co-workers from Sweatheart Plastics.

She loved spending time with her sister, Marie, whether it was shopping trips, traveling together, or reminiscing on times past.

Anne will be fondly remembered for her outgoing personality and her huge heart; she was pleasant, friendly, loving and kind to everyone. She will be forever in the hearts of those she loved and those who loved her.

Anne was the beloved wife of the late Sidney R. Kaizer, devoted mother of Edward C. Kaizer & his wife Mary Tassone Kaizer of Wilmington, Annemarie Clark & her husband Ron, Cathleen Brown & her husband Jaythomas all of North Andover and the late Daniel Kaizer, loving “Gran” of Samuel and Charlotte Kaizer, cherished daughter of the late Charles and Ethel (Nugent) Whitehouse, dear sister of Marie Whitehouse of Norwood.

Family and friends will gather at the Nichols Funeral Home, 187 Middlesex Ave. (Rte. 62), Wilmington, on Saturday, September 22nd at 11:00 a.m. followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Dorothy’s Church, Main St. (Rte. 38), Wilmington at 12:00 noon. Interment will take place in Wildwood Cemetery, Wilmington. Visiting Hours will be held at the Funeral Home on Friday, September 21st from 4:00-8:00 p.m.

    Your Mother was like a 2nd Mother to me and to my children. She was a great help when Timmy and Jenn were small. Watching them daily so I could work. She had already raised her family. but she treated mine as if they were her own. I knew they were in great hands while with her.
    She was one of the group of my Moms friends that would play poker on Saturday nights, have tea in the afternoon and just talk and laugh and probably sometimes cry over the trials and tribulations of raising us kids. And then when my Mom got sick she was also part of that same group of friends helping take care of her until the end.
    She was a great story teller and a great listener.She was always there for me during some of the toughest times of my life. She would always lend and ear or a shoulder to cry on. My heart breaks for your family because I know what a great relationship you all had with her. I will always think of her and smile.
    Anne, you will be forever missed. Send my love to my Mom, Bruce, Bobby and Tara.
