Anne was a graduate of Conrad Weiser High School. She first worked for Corbits Inc., Reading, PA, taking a break from working to raise her son. She returned to work, working in the purchasing department for Allentown Cement Co. Inc. for 20 years before retiring.
Anne’s creativity and zest for quality could be seen in everything she did, from sewing on a button to making a meal. It was meticulously done, down to the finest detail. She was an avid quilter and a member of the Berks Quilters Guild. She was an amazing cook. All her meals were perfect but a lot of times not perfect enough to her. Thanksgiving dinner was her favorite meal to make and host although the most tedious. It was picture perfect, from the table setting, numerous dishes, perfect timing of cooking being done, multiple dessert choices, down to the coffee. Guests needed two plates just to have a sample of everything. She truly was the “hostess with the mostest”.
Caregiver of the family was another task she willfully took on as she cared for her husband, mother, and siblings when they became ill.
She loved to travel, visiting Hawaii and Colorado numerous times to visit family, trips to New England, especially Vermont and to the smoky mountains of Tennessee. She traveled as far as Ireland and England with the quilters guild. Most of all, she loved to go for rides to upstate Pennsylvania with her son.
Her son would like to extend a special Thank You to the the nursing staff of the C1 floor of the Reading Hospital for their dedicated and compassionate care.
