We met Anne and Irene(I can’t think of one without the other!)
At Captains Harbor too.
Anne and Irene were the first to make us feel welcome in South Carolina.
She had a laugh I will never forget, and a kindness that is to be admired.

From:  Gerry Kenney
Anne and have been friends for many many years. I spent many a day at her home in Vestal, NY when I too lived there. We had a lot of the same friends and we did a lot of things together until she left Vestal and moved to SC. My daughter and I visited her in SC and that is where I met Irene who was a great friend to Anne. When she left SC and went to Waverly to be with her daughter, I spoke to her many times. I will miss her very much. I loved her as a friend.

From:  Debbie & John Fry
Our deepest sympathy to Anne’s family. Anne was a true friend. Anne and her friend (Irene Cook) were the first to welcome us when we moved to South Carolina over 20 years ago. We enjoyed her company through neighboring, many dinners & other social events. We will forever remember her infectious laugh. Always a joy. Rest In Peace Until we meet again.

From:  Caroline Meyers
Dearest, Anne, you were so much more than mother of my dear husband and a wonderful mother-in-law, you were a second mother to me. I will miss you.

I loved Anne- we worked together at Face Factory in the 1980's.  She later became part of our family and adored my Mom who felt the same.  My condolences!
