Anne retired after 20 years of service at Bendix/Litton Life Support/Northrop Grumman.   She also taught cooking classes for children and families demonstrating ways to make economical meals through the Iowa Extension Office.  

 

Anne was deeply devoted to her family; she had a unique ability to love everyone regardless of if you were related or not.  She was a kind and generous soul and will be missed by all who knew and loved her. 

 

Anne was a fantastic cook and enjoyed music and shopping.
