She is survived by her children, Joni (Jim), Susan (Mike), and Robert (Ann), as well as her eight grandchildren and two great-grandsons.

Anne was a devoted wife, sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. After growing up in Indiana and graduating from Alexandria High School in 1949, she traveled to California in 1951 with one of her brothers and worked as a telephone operator at Pacific Bell. There she met the love of her life, Marion, in Carlsbad, California, after being set up on a blind date. Marion was in the Air Force and was home on leave at the time. After two weeks, Marion knew he could not live without her and asked her to spend her life with him. They were married on Oct. 16, 1952, in Yuma, Arizona. They enjoyed a 63-year and eight-month marriage.

Anne built an exceptional life with Marion. After having their three children, Joni, Robert and Susan, she received her teacher aide certificate from Antelope Valley College. Later, she and Marion owned a successful restaurant for 22 years. After retiring, they both enjoyed traveling and visiting family and friends across the country, including Alaska, Texas, Indiana and North Carolina. Anne greatly loved the Lord, and was proud of her children and grandchildren for continuing her steadfast faith. Anne was especially proud of her four grandchildren serving their country in the military.

In lieu of flowers, Anne and Marion’s favorite charities were City of Hope and St. Jude, if you wish to donate.

Annabelle was a beautiful person, with a captivating laugh that filled any room. She was extremely loved, and will be greatly missed by all whom she graced in her life.

Harry DeSchamps

Harry Vernon DeSchamps, 93, Kokomo, passed away at 5:05 p.m. on Sunday, August 14, 2016, at St. Vincent Hospital in Kokomo. He was born March 12, 1923, in Cassville, to Francis and Anna (Houser) DeSchamps. He married to Mary Lou Collins, and she preceded him in death on October 14, 1972.

Harry owned Harry’s Auto Parts on North Washington for years and was known as the “starter” man.

A memorial Mass will be held at 1 p.m. Friday at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 1204 N. Armstrong St., Kokomo with Rev. Fr. David Huemmer the celebrant. Friends are invited to visit from 12 to 1 p.m. on Friday at the church. Messages of condolence may be expressed online at www.shirleyandstout.com.

The following was written by Harry before his passing:

I’m not the rich man people think I am, and the way the market’s been acting, I may have been saying, “I’m too poor to eat bread.” P.S. My favorite food besides pie.

Talking about food and bread, my family was poor and very proud. My father was born in France. My mother was born in New Jersey. My father spoke French. My mother spoke English, but they still had three boys and four girls. (Haha. No language barrier there.)

I was always hungry. I used to have fifteen cents every day (maybe?) if I was lucky. My mother got 10 cents. I kept the nickel. I would buy a doughnut, and then I was in heaven. I made my money selling whiskey bottles. Maybe I’d get a penny a piece for each bottle. I always sold papers to local businesses.

I remember we used to catch rain water to bathe. There were no televisions, no refrigerators. There was practically nothing at all. My mother was a great woman. She kept us together after my father died. Can you image seven kids and no dad? I joined the Navy and fought in WWII. I was in Japan when the Atom Bomb was dropped.

I got married and had two girls. I lost my wife in ‘71. My girls left home. I never saw them again for many years. I never knew my grandchildren, something I regret very much to this day. I would have loved to have had them by my side taking over my business. (No such luck.) Most of them are still not in my life. (Four grandchildren, all grown.) I haven’t seen one daughter but once in 35 years or more. The other came home when she was in her ‘60s. One is very quiet and keeps to herself (hermit?) with one boy and one girl (haven’t seen them since babies). The other girl (what can I say?) She is very impulsive and getting herself in trouble a lot! Two boys.

My life was playing tennis from the time I was old enough to stand in front of a table and hit a ball. It was exciting, and I loved every minute of it. Winning the U.S. Open, the Canadian Open, and becoming a very good player, I was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

After my wife passed in 1971, I never remarried. My life revolved around work and table tennis, traveling a lot. Sometimes a man wants a person he can take care of. I never made a secret of my special affection for a certain woman. She’s been in my life a very long time. People sometimes thought we were married. I never regretted caring for her after her husband died. And now she cares for me, saving my life many times. Three strokes so far, gall bladder, etc.
