Annie Marie Masters, age 6, of Hopkinton, went to heaven the morning of Jan. 31. She was with Mom and Dad holding each of their hands as she became an angel. Born in Boston, she was the daughter of Chris and Genny Masters. Annie was a cuddle bug and loved being held and cuddling with Mom and Dad. She gave the best kisses and had a belly laugh that would make any day a million times better. Annie, like her twin sister, Charlotte, loved to swim, especially on the beaches of Ocean City, New Jersey. She also enjoyed swinging, climbing, playing babies and dress-up, reading books, dancing, music and doing whatever her big brother was doing. A lover of Minnie Mouse and Demi from “Vampirina,” which made her giggle the most.
Despite many medical challenges that took many of her abilities away from her, she lived life to the fullest and never complained. She had the legs of a ballerina, always on the move, and fingers that were long and beautiful and meant for creating. Annie had a great disposition, rolled with the punches and took every challenge head on. She loved going to school, loved her teachers and therapists at both the Hopkinton Integrated Preschool and the Boston College Campus School. She had out of this world toughness and resolve and was born a fighter.
Annie was loved by so many people, but especially her twin sister, Charlotte, who passed away Nov. 6, 2019, and her brother, Chase; her maternal grandparents, Jean and Chris Johnson of West Chester, Pennsylvania; her paternal grandparents, the late Peter Masters Sr. and Karolyn Masters of Bedford; her aunts and uncles, Matt Johnson of Lake Tahoe, California, Peter and Amy Masters of Bedford, Kristine Masters of Rome, Italy, and Katy and Kyle O’Connor of Bedford; as well as her cousins, Jackson, Alexa, Landon, Sadie, Bridget, Kierstyn, Paige, Emma and Christian.
