Family and others are blessed to be in possession of many fine pieces of needlepoint and quilts fashioned by Anne’s hands. She was an excellent cook, baker and enjoyed gardening immensely. She valued family and faith very highly and was fulfilled by having her family present. She had a very strong faith in God and passed it along to her children. She passed away peacefully with her family by her side and went home to be with her Savior. A full life was lived until her declining health necessitated residing in the Western Senior Citizens Home in Leader where she was cared for as family.
