Obituary

Ann Armstrong Sampone

Ann M. Amrstong Sampone passed away April 5, 2020 at St Mary’s Hospital after a long illness.

Born July 3, 1953, the daughter of John and Veronica Keiley Armstrong.

She was a lifelong resident of Amsterdam and a graduate of Bishop Scully High School in Amsterdam. Ann attended Fulton Montgomery Community College and was employed at GE in Schenectady.

On September 7, 1974, Ann married Michael J. Sampone; together they raised their 2 sons, Christopher and Timothy. Ann was a proud homemaker, mother and wife. She cherished her time with her family. She loved family vacations, trips to theme parks, hiking and camping in the woods and swimming in the pool at home with family and friends. She actively participated in the Fresh Air Fund for many years hosting children from NYC during summer months.

Ann also had a special love for animals, you could always find at least 1 dog, cat, rabbit, turtle or hamster or any combination of them at her home at any time.

She enjoyed holidays, especially decorating her home for each and then having a family get together. She loved spending time and talking with her family and friends. During the past 15 years as her health slowly declined from COPD, her friends and family were always there for her. We are so grateful to all of you.
Ann was a devote Catholic and member of St Mary’s Church in Amsterdam. A special thanks to Mike Schuttig for bringing her communion faithfully every Thursday.

A special thank you to her dear friend and nurse, Teresa Lockwood, for helping her and caring for her and our family during the past 2 years. We truly believe you helped to extend her life due to the love, caring and laughter you shared with her. We lovingly referred to the two of you as “Lucy and Ethel”.

Ann is predeceased by her parents, her brother, John “Jack” Armstrong who died of ALS 1990. His loss had a devastating impact on her. She is also predeceased by her brother-in-law, John A Sampone.

In addition to her husband, Ann is survived by her sons, Christopher Sampone of Amsterdam and Timothy (Matt) Sampone of East Greenbush NY; sister-in-law, Gloria J (Steve) Jauss, brother-in-law, Nicholas (Janet) Sampone and sister-in-law, Joan Sampone, several nieces, nephews, cousins and “Fresh Air “son”, Armein Brown. She is also survived by her special friend and companion Lady, her chubby little Chihuahua who was always at her side.

Our family would like to give a special thanks to Dr Santilli, Dr Forlano and Dr Sheridan for their care and compassion during the many years of her Illness.

We would be remiss if we didn’t give a special thank you to the nurses at St Mary’s Hospital, especially those on the 4th floor where she spent most of the past few months. Their dedication, compassion, care and understanding will never are forgotten, especially during this very demanding time for them. Thank you again and God bless you.

Due to the pandemic, a private service will be held. A celebration of Ann’s life will be scheduled in the near future.

Memorial contributions may be made in Ann’s memory to Montgomery County SPCA, SPCA Road, P.O. Box 484, Amsterdam, NY 12010 or a charity of one’s choice.

Mike, Chris, Timmy and Family - Jen and I are so sorry to hear about the passing of Ann. Although time has caused us all to drift apart I was reminded today of all the fun times we had together. Today, April 13 in 1978 seems so far away. Mike, Mur and I were sitting in Yankee Stadium on Opening Day and after getting our complimentary Reggie Bars we sat down for a beautiful afternoon of baseball. The rest is history - Reggie hit it out of the park and the field was flooded with Reggie bars. It is memories like that become something we always look back at. It was no different than the great memories we shared around the same time with our close knit group of friends camping at Lake Sacandoga, Lake George, etc. Once or twice every year we would all get together with the families and spend a few days camping. My daughter Peggy was sometimes given the assignment of sitting in the tent with Timmy until he fell asleep. Those days were my most fondest memories of Ann and how she loved hanging out with family and friends. Yes, time has taken it's toll on our very close friendship but it can never take away the close family ties that we formed so many years ago.
Jen and I will remember Ann, you and family in our thoughts and prayers.
Tommy and Jennifer

She is home and no longer suffering. Take comfort in that. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you especially during this Easter weekend. Love your cousin, Toni Macera and Robin.
