Happy Mother’s Day mom. Thank You for being my mom, you did an amazing job. As I sit here today wanting to thank you for everything you did, I realize the list is too long. All 4 of us boys couldn’t have asked for a better mom, you will never know how much we love you, and how grateful we are for having you as our mom. I love you mom, and miss you so very much. I hope you’re looking down on us and we’re making you proud. Til we meet again, please keep a close watch us. As we all said before, we will see you later. Love you mom.


Robert, I want you to know how saddened I was to hear about Anne. I was lucky enough to get to visit with her a couple of times at the dinners with the girls from Bethel. To reconnect after so many years was a joy. She was all smiles and we had such a good time. There are never any words that will lessen grief but happy memories are all most of us have to share. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Debbie

Your ceremony today was absolutely beautiful. I miss you so much mom. Til the day we meet again, please keep an eye on us from above. I love you. Chad


The world lost a beautiful person when heaven gained an angel. Anne was a remarkable woman with a strong determination that she passed to her family. She was immensely proud of her boys and left her legacy in each of them. I know she is smiling in heaven as she continues to watch over each of you...

Mom, I thank you for everything from day one. I know you wouldn’t take the thanks, you’d just think you were doing your job as a mother. I’d say you went well beyond the call of mother for all of us. Grade school years, you never missed a field trip or school party. Even though you’d have to cover 4 field trips and 4 party’s, basically living at Lewis&Clark in those years. Then as all of us grew, we could always count on you being in the stands of our baseball or football games. As grown adults I knew it brought you so much pride with all 4 of us flying. I’ll miss having you on my future flights as will everyone else. As proud of us as you were, we wouldn’t have ever made it without you and couldn’t have ever dreamt of going through life without you. Everything we are is because of you and dad. I couldn’t be more proud of you mom. I’ll miss you everyday going forward and remember all the days we had with you on earth mom. I love you so much mom, watch over all of us. I’ll be waiting for the day all of us are reunited as a complete family. Love you mom!

To my best friend and my wife, I loved you so much. I think of you every minute of each day. You were the best wife that anyone could have ever wanted. You raised 4 successful sons to be proud of, thank you. I know you will build us a home in heaven. I will see you there. Thank you for everything my Love! You were the greatest wife, mom, and friend. Love you and we’ll all see you soon.

Heaven became even more beautiful that evening you were called home. I will forever cherish the 33 years we had together in this life - God truly blessed Rob, Chad, Adam and I with the most amazing mom. I don’t remember a school field trip, school holiday party, or little league game that you weren’t in attendance - you somehow managed to not only be at mine, but also Rob, Chad, and Adam’s too. I will forever remember all of our Christmas mornings while growing up, our family vacations to our second home (Hawaii), and our countless hours just sitting on the front porch for lack of other things to do. All of those memories help fill the tremendous void I have in my heart right now. Words cannot describe how much we all miss you, but I find great comfort in knowing that you have finally been cured by the greatest healer of all - God! I wish I could give you just one more hug, but I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to give you back. Until we meet again mom, I pray you rest well - it’s not goodbye, it’s see you later. We will have the most amazing family reunion, but until’re forever in our hearts. Love you so much mom!!


The girls and I send our condolences. She was a joy to talk with when we came she will truly be missed

Thank you for everything mom. I wasn’t ready for you to leave but, I wasn’t ever going to be ready. I am so glad that you are no longer in pain and you’ve earned your wings. Look down on us mom, and know that everything we are is because of you and dad. I hope you are as proud of us as we are of you. I look forward to the day we will meet again. Until then mom, know that we miss you dearly, and we will love you forever. Love Chad.


Mom, there isn’t a moment that goes by that I don’t think of you and miss you so very much. We will be reunited later, but until that time comes; I will live my life as you lived yours ~ to the fullest! A child could not have had a better mother, friend, and role model. It’s a blessing to be your son. May you Rest In Peace until our family is back together. Love you, always and forever!

My beautiful sweet loving kind friend your "cute" shoes can never be filled. I will cherish the memories we have made and every single marathon phone call we had. Your legacy of faith, love and kindness will live on thru "our" precious boys. Thank you for sharing them with me. You saved me from the bad choices teens can often make and helped make me the person I am today. You will always be my big sister, my dearest friend and the scale against which I measure myself. (You will also be one of God's favorite angels, even if he can't say so.) I will miss you daily and talk to you often to "catch you up". Listen for my voice, because I will be straining to hear yours. Save me a seat near you and feel free to decorate my mansion for me. I trust your impeccable taste, as always. I love you and already miss you so much.

Michelle McCollough

I will miss you Aunt Anne. I will always remember your wink and smile. Many joy rides in your Volkswagen Convertible and so much more. Until we meet again. Give Grandpa a big hug for me.
