Anne loved her precious cat Simone and loved to take her on walks in her stroller. She was a meticulous seamstress and loved to crochet. She loved art, cooking, gardening in her patio space, and organizing. She kept a nearly daily journal for most of her adult life. She loved service and was well known for her favorite applesauce cookies, smiles, and even with health challenges; she tried to make those around her feel a little brighter. Her health suffered most of her life, yet she had amazing faith in God, the scriptures, and the power of prayer and was not afraid to trust her intuition. Her testimony strengthened others.
