RASINES, ANNIE CARMEN “ANNE,” 86, of Carlsbad, Calif., died peacefully November 1, after a valiant struggle with cancer. Anne was comforted in her passing with her family by her side. Anne was born Oct. 10, 1927, in Barre, the daughter of Sabino Lasorsa and Aurellia Marchesi. Anne thrived while growing up in Barre, where she met her best friend, Evie Abbiati, and her soulmate, Ricardo “Ric” Rasines. After graduating from Spaulding High School, Anne worked at the Barre Granite Savings Bank for several years, developing her business administration skills. In 1950, Anne married Ricardo Rasines. In 1952, Anne gave birth to their only child, Douglas. Eight months later, Anne and Ric packed up their belongings and moved across the country from Vermont to Trona, Calif., where Ric had accepted a teaching position at Trona High School. Anne and Ric found Trona to be a wonderful place to raise a family and greatly enjoyed the company of so many lifelong friends. While living in Trona, Anne and Ric often spent vacations at various beach locations along the southern California coast, where Anne loved being able to enjoy the sunshine without the desert heat. Anne worked for 32 years at the local chemical manufacturing plant, first as an executive secretary and ending her career as the director of human resources. In 1988, Anne and Ric retired and moved to Solana Beach, Calif. Anne much enjoyed the “laid-back” beach community lifestyle and time spent taking in the scenic ocean views. Anne, a loving wife and mother, enjoyed music and laughter. Kindhearted, she always put the concerns of others above her own. Although small in stature, Anne touched the lives of those who knew her. Anne was preceded in death by her older brother, Reno Lasorsa. She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Ricardo; son, Douglas; daughter in-law, Deborah; one grandson; numerous loving relatives; her “second family,” Nancy and Ken Norton; and many dear friends.
