I'm so sorry to hear about Anne's passing. I had the honor of working with Anne when she was at the Toms River Friends group. She was wonderful to work with, and she was true advocate and "friend" of the library. It was a privilege to know her. She will be missed.

Sarah , Peter and Family,
So sorry to learn of Anne passing. In the years I had the pleasure of speaking with Anne she was so well versed and interesting to converse with in conversation. I was lucky to purchase her bead work which I shall wear as a memory of your Mom.
