My deepest condolences to all the family! Auntie Anne will be missed. She and Uncle Bill were always so happy to see Kenny and I and our growing family, and we saw quite a bit of them when they moved nearby. Auntie Anne always seemed to be learning something new and kept up with all the latest local and world news! Her sewing and cooking talents were unmatched, and I know she passed on her talents to her daughters. She was a very special lady, and I imagine there is quite a reunion going on in Heaven. R.I.P., Auntie Anne.

Auntie Anne (as we called her) was such a sweet lady. I have such great memories of her and Uncle Bill playing ball (in the house!) with us as kids and feeding us sandwiches and ice cream. As she got older I remember taking her first selfie with her and her saying she better comb her hair first cause she wanted to look good. I will remember her smiling face.
