Ann "Fanny" Regina Sinnott

March 12, 1947 — July 10, 2020

Ann Regina Sinnott, known affectionately by those who loved her as “Fanny,” was born in Evansville, Indiana, on March 12, 1947, to Anita “Neats” and Lawrence “Bud” Sinnott. She was raised in Greenwich, CT, alongside her eight siblings; Lloyd, Ellen, Kate, Eddie, Larry, Johnny, Alyce, Jimmy, and her nephew Ryan.

Fanny graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with a BS in Special Education.  During her time in Santa Monica, CA, she worked as a florist and mastered the language of flowers.  She spent her later years in Dallas, TX (most recently Stover, MO) with her brother Eddie and his wife Sioux, helping raise their daughters KC and Silver.  In Dallas she worked as a preschool teacher at The Children’s Center, taught Irish Dance at Hibernia Dance School, coached swimming for the Dallas Mustangs, and babysat many families in the DFW area.

Fanny’s fight with cancer was tragically abrupt, but the impact she made in her time on Earth ripples through a sea of people.  She slipped away on July 10, 2020, surrounded by family.

To know Fanny was to love Fanny.  Her spirit was larger than life and radiant.  She was laughter.  She was love.  She shined like a firefly at midnight, not to be seen, but simply because she could.

Fanny will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Those she leaves behind will always remember her bright red hair and her child like spirit.

She is preceded in death by her parents and ex-husband, Tom Schinto.  A scholarship fund has been established in her name to provide financial assistance to club swimmers in North Texas.

The family thanks the nurses, staff and doctors at Bothwell Regional Hospital in Sedalia, MO, for their quick analysis, diagnosis and loving care of Fanny.   Fanny will be cremated and services will be held at a later date.  Thanks for Scrivner Morrow Funeral home for their loving care of Fanny’s passage.
