Dear Anspach Family, I am so sorry for your loss.When my family & I lived on Soundview Ave., I remember going to her house because I wanted to be a brownie. She let me stay for the entire meeting even though I wasn't in her troop. She was a very special lady. I was in 4th or 5th grade at the time. I remember thinking that she was a real princess. She was a very caring woman. Warm thoughts & prayers being sent.
