Dear Swope Family,

I am saddened by reading of Anne's passing. I have been associated with Appel Heating & AC Company since June, 1957. Anne and Barton were customers of our company at that time, until the present. What a wonderful relationship we have had for those 62+ years! Every one of our employees have always enjoyed the courtesy extended to them by both Anne and Barton. I regret that I was unable to attend the service on Saturday due to having out-of-town visitors for the weekend. We will truly miss Anne, as we also have Bart.

Regards,
Ken Appel

Dear Steve, Debbie, Barb, and Bill,

I was so saddened to hear of Anne’s passing. She was such a sweet presence in our lives as kids and had such a wonderful sense of humor. After Bart’s passing, Denny and I would visit with her when we came to Indy and we would talk for a couple of hours sharing memories. I will remember our many family gatherings at holidays and such, and the fun we had together as kids. The Rutledge’s were a wonderful influence on all of us cousins.....giving us their strength, wisdom, and laughter. We shall never see their like again. Love, Middi

I haven't seen Great Aunt Anne in many years, but have fond memories of her when my family and I would come to Indy to visit from Oregon. She was a bright light; warm and kind with that unmistakable Rutledge wit and humor.

All our love and prayers to the family. There will never be another like you, Great Aunt Anne. We love you.
