Anne attended Westville and Danville schools.  She worked most recently as a home health care worker where she enjoyed making the lives of others more comfortable.   Anne’s interests included reading, writing, and spending time in nature.  She was very social and loved being around her many friends.  But most of all, Anne loved her three children with all her heart.  Times with her children and other family members were very special to her.

The family requests that memorials be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.  The family would also request that you say a prayer for Anne, pray for each other, and pray for God’s mercy and graces for the whole world.

My beautiful sweet friend Anne. You brought a smile to everyone you were around, and your compassion for others is what we all should strive for. You gave more of yourself and was an example for those of us around you. I know your kids were your everything and how proud you were of them. I know one of those bright lights in the sky will be you smiling down upon us. Rest easy my friend and I will see you again.
