AnaMarie Schaap, born on May 10, 1944, in Manhattan, New York, passed away on March 18, 2024, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, at the age of 79.

Throughout her remarkable life journey, AnaMarie touched the hearts of many with her unwavering spirit and dedication to her passions. With a career spanning multiple industries, she found her first career in the music world, where she worked alongside legendary artists such as Isaac Hayes, Dion Warwick, Fleetwood Mac, and Minnie Riperton. Her nurturing nature extended beyond the music industry as she dedicated 20 years of her life as a compassionate nurse, providing care and comfort to those in need.

AnaMarie’s adventurous soul led her to explore new horizons through her love of traveling, always seeking new experiences and cultures to broaden her perspective on life. Her commitment to helping others was further demonstrated through her educational pursuits, having attended Temple University and being an Alumni of Bergen Pines County Hospital School of Practical Nursing.

In the hearts of those who knew her best, AnaMarie will forever be remembered for her warmth, kindness, and resilience. She is preceded in death by her son Moses, husband Larry Schaap, siblings Juanita, Dorothy, Paul, as well as her parents Margarita and Julio. AnaMarie leaves behind a legacy of love and memories cherished by her children Danielle, Melanie, William, Joseph, and Gianna, her sister Julia, and grandchildren Deric, Morris, Shawn, Sydney, Shane, Hali, Gabriel, Jayden, Elise, and Kaiden. Additionally, she is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren who will carry her spirit with them always.

A small service to honor AnaMarie’s life will be held at the Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel on April 13, 2024, at 11 AM, followed by a luncheon to celebrate a life well-lived. May her memory continue to inspire and uplift those whose lives she touched.

I’ll miss walking in your house and yelling “HEY GIRL”. I’ll miss how we laughed and how we would tease one another. Say hi to Grandma for me and don’t watch too much TMZ with her.

Love you always.

AnaMarie and I worked together at Lake Taylor Hospital. We loved the Vent Unit. We became more than co-workers, we became friends, then we became family. We spent so much time together. She knew all of my secrets, my joys and my pain. She was like my Mother, giving advice and always having my back. She was so beautiful! Her intellect was superior! We talked about EVERYTHING! God knows, I will miss her. I love her so much. Rest well, my dear friend, rest well…
Love to the highest, Mel
