Obituary

TENANTS HARBOR — Anne Babine Klapfish had a big heart, which unexpectedly stopped working on June 20, 2019, in her home in Tenants Harbor, Maine.

Anne is the daughter of Dot Mullen and the late Everett Babine; beloved wife of 46 years to Maurice; mother to Kate Caprari and her husband Brian; and grandmother to Elliot, who calls her “Goosie.”

Anne was born January 16, 1950 in Quincy, Massachusetts and spent her early childhood in Arlington, Massachusetts before moving to Bath, Maine, where she graduated from Morse High School. She attended Emmanuel College in Boston, Massachusetts. During her college years, she visited Europe several times and journeyed from England to India by bus, through Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan.

Anne and Maurice settled in Brookline, Massachusetts, where they raised their daughter. Anne was a vibrant member of the community and an active school parent. She began her career in health care administration for the state of Massachusetts but was drawn to more creative pursuits. She opened a home flower shop, then expanded to a retail store in Brookline Village, which she ran for many years. Anne and her husband enjoyed spending summers in Maine, where they relocated in 2002.

Anne was an artist and an entrepreneur. Her passion and livelihood was running Stonefish in Tenants Harbor — her shop filled with antiques, apparel, and home decor sourced from around the globe. She was a collector of treasures, vintage art, and found objects, displayed in the beautiful interiors of her home and shop.

With her sparkling and creative spirit, Anne counted many friends in her life. She delighted in eating good meals, traveling to new cities, sharing thoughtful gifts, reading mystery novels, and solving the New York Times crossword puzzle in ink.

To Anne, friends were family, and strangers were friends. She often hosted festive gatherings at her home, and there was always room for another guest at her table. Anne loved sharing stories and could always be counted on for an honest opinion.

Anne’s life was marked by the joy she brought to people, the beauty that she surrounded herself with, and her generosity of spirit.

I knew Anne from her store looked forward to seeing her and her lovely store. Got some great finds at Stonefish one being an old wide strapped white wicker basket I plant flowers every year in this basket. She had a great eye and a wonderful spirit. She will be missed. She spoke of her mother often and of course her daughter son-in-law and grandson. And her husband who always created these fantastic light fixtures I’d look forward to what he invented over the winter. Take good care of yourself it’s a shocking loss, she was quite a busy woman and took care of a lot. She was a wonderful woman.
