Annemarie Abbink, former Vail resident, 1929-2010
Vail, CO Colorado
Annemarie Abbink was born Feb. 18, 1929 and died June 10, 2010. She was 81 years young.
Annemarie is survived by husband Bill, son Jim Abbink, one grandson, sister Lore Guthmann and nephews and nieces in Germany.
She was a very friendly and outgoing person. Her artistic nature led her to quilting, painting and teaching.
A quilt in the Vail Library and a quilt at the Forest Service were designed by Annemarie with help from friends.
She and her husband lived in East Vail for many years in the house they built. They moved to Taos because of her love for painting. She also started “The Quilters” in Questa, N.M.
Annemarie will be missed by many friends here and in Taos.
Condolences can be sent to Bill Abbink, HC-74 Box 21411, El Prado, N.M. 87529.
