Anne was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. I’ve been blessed to know her my whole adult life. Meeting her first at the firehall volunteering for everything, at church and finally working with her at Rushville Community Health Center.
She was a fierce advocate for patient privacy, perfection during the transition from paper to software and just a sincere human being. If I needed something she would search until she found the answer. When times were tough for her personally, she never dropped the ball! Stoic and dedicated she just kept going. I truly admired her. Our talks at work I will forever cherish. A precious soul who will definitely be missed❣️

We are saddened to hear of Anne's passing this past week. She was always a cousin that cared deeply for the family and would do anything to help in times of need. Our sincere condolences to Lee. Anne will be missed but we are comforted knowing she is now reunited with her husband, Charlie, and other family members who have previously left this world.
