Died after a brief illness on February, 20, 2014 in Santa Rosa. She was 90 years old. Anne came to California from Germany with her father and sister when she was six years old. The family settled in San Francisco. Anne grew up in the city and worked at Woolworth's before marrying Raymond Manley. The couple moved to Sebastopol in the early 1950s, and raised their two sons Paul and David there. In the early days of Twin Hills Volunteer Fire Department, before electronic notification or 911, Anne was one of the volunteers who used the "phone tree" to call firefighters when a call came in. She worked for Storer Cable TV in Sebastopol and later for Comcast when the two companies merged. Anne loved birds, the San Francisco Giants, wildflowers and her family. She is survived by her son Paul, her son David, her niece Stacey, her nephews Michael and Steven and their loving families. A memorial service will be held at Pleasant Hill Mortuary, 1700 Pleasant Hill Road, Sebastopol, on Friday, March 7, at 11:00 a.m., with a no-host gathering at Mary's Pizza afterward. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the Point Reyes Bird Observatory, or KRCB Public Television.
