Anne A. Wev

Anne "Petey" Armistead Wev passed away in the comfort of her home in Fredericksburg on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, surrounded by friends and family.

Born in Memphis, Tenn., she graduated from Mount Vernon Junior College. Petey met her forever dancing partner, Bosquet "Biscuit" N. Wev Jr., while he was a midshipman at the Naval Academy and they married on Oct. 20, 1952, after his graduation. She was the consummate Navy wife, willingly moving up and down the East Coast while Biscuit deployed in submarines. Even while busy raising her four children in Arlington, she volunteered at Grace Episcopal Church in Alexandria. She and Biscuit eventually retired to Edgewater, Md., where they enjoyed a life of boating and listening to jazz. After transferring to St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Annapolis, she and Biscuit became active there.

In 2013, the Wevs moved to Fredericksburg, to be closer to their children, where they frequently watched Washington Redskins and Navy football together.

Petey is preceded in death by an infant son, Bosquet N. Wev III, her sister, Eugenia A. Blanchard and her parents, Maude C. and Robert A. Armistead. She is survived by her husband, Biscuit; children Anne W. Boyles (Jim), Elizabeth W. Roane (Pat), Diane W. Chesebrough (Dave) and Alexander N. Wev (Chellie). There are eight grandchildren (most of them called her "Gampi" and one called her "Binky"); and three great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Wev was a woman of quiet faith who had a quick wit. We will miss her very much.

A service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Annapolis, Md., and inurnment will be at the USNA Columbarium at 2 p.m.

Her family would like to thank the staff of The Crossings at Falls Run in Fredericksburg, Comfort Keepers of Fredericksburg and Hospice, plus the wonderful doctors and nurses at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., for their care and compassion.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project.
