Growing up in Buckfield , you knew everyone. Anne was such a nice lady and I loved to hear her laugh and she loved to laugh. As we all grew up and started lives raising kids I hadn’t seen Anne in years and ran into her a few years ago. She looked at me and I looked at her and realized we knew each other and started talking. As her kids were just a little younger than I was she wanted to know about my family. She told me she had seen that I had lost my mom and how sorry she was! We laughed and chatted for almost 1/2 an hour standing in a store! She was a peach!

Anne was such a loving caring lady. I met her via Facebook and I will miss chatting with her and seeing her posts. She was such a blessing to all who knew her.
I will miss her greatly.
