"I didn't know Mrs. Wilhelm well, but of the few times our paths crossed I found her to be a sweet, kind and caring person. My deepest sympathy to the family."

Anne was an amazing woman who loved life and affected so many people with her kindness and help in education. Her two students, Lorena and Francis, who just got their GEDs in December, are heartbroken. I loved each week when Anne came in to tutor them, her bight spirit, her conversation, and her dedication to everyone she touched. We will miss you Anne, but what an example of womanhood you have given to each of us. All of us at FYI

My sincere sympathy to Anne's family. We were good friends at Corpus Christi and I have many happy memories of our rides on the bus home and the support we gave each other during those challenging years of growing up. Her Mom was especially kind to me. Whenever I was in Dayton for UD's reunions, I tried to get her to participate, but she was very much a forward looking person, though we met several times for coffee and conversation. I last spoke to her when her Bob died several years ago. I'm sure the lovely person she was will live on in her children and grandchildren, and in my heart too. Dee (Gombert) Aufuldish

To Anne's children,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. Anne was a very close friend of my sister, Dee Gombert, and I have fond memories of Anne. God rest her soul.

Always enjoyed having Anne next door in the library at the high school. We shared many ideas over the years.

Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for the tragic loss of your beloved mother. Words are inadequate to express our overwhelming sadness and our immense grief. In the early 80s, Anne and I taught in the same room. Although I knew the family and children from Mary Help, I did not know Anne well. From the moment we met, there was an immediate connection, which led to our close relationship. A voracious learner, she was well-read, gracious, compassionate, so affable, warm, friendly, and considerate- I never heard her raise her voice and I don't remember ever seeing her without her mug of coffee. We taskmasters worked well together and reveled in every moment with our students in our tiny, cramped room trying to accommodate our materials, books, students, and the occasional parent.
Anne was a dear friend and a lovely woman, whom I shall truly miss. Our teaching days left me with a trove of cherished memories, some of the most memorable of my teaching career. To say that Anne was special would be a disservice. She was so much more. She understood the importance of education and emphasized its significance to her students. She was an exceptional, effective, and stellar educator~ someone to be admired and emulated~ someone who loved teaching and learning, loved life, and loved her family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Rest in peace, dear Anne. I miss you.

With warmest regards and affection,
