Anne Braun Wenslow Obituary
ALFRED - Anne Braun Wenslow of Alfred died June 10, 2014, following a valiant struggle against complications from a fall. She was surrounded by her family at the time of her passing.

Born in Rochester, N.Y., on July 16, 1931, she was the daughter of Leo Braun Sr. and Anna Dummer Braun. Her parents and an infant daughter, Susan, predeceased her.

Anne earned her BS degree at Nazareth College, Rochester (N.Y.) and MS degree at the University of Pittsburgh (Pa.). A gifted teacher, she served at the high school level in Troupsburg, Jasper, Fillmore, Friendship, Alfred-Almond and Wellsville Central Schools. In 1969, she joined Alfred State College as professor of office administration and technology. During her years there, she held campus positions as department chair, curriculum coordinator, president of the Faculty Senate, chair of various college-wide committees, as well as commencement and convocation speaker roles, until her retirement in 1995.

Throughout her career, Anne was a member of several professional organizations. After retirement, she continued as consultant and evaluator of office education programs for the NJ State Higher Education Department and the Commission of Higher Education/Middle States Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges.

Anne was a loving and proud mother and grandmother, an accomplished seamstress, quilter and needleworker, avid gardener, enthusiastic cook, and golfer. She loved to travel and had a lifelong affection for lighthouses. A strong and independent woman who lived life on her own terms, she was intensely loyal and always ready to help her family, friends and community.

Anne served as a 4-H club leader and Boy Scout badge counselor, notary public, tutor and board member for the Literacy Volunteers of America - Allegany County, board member, secretary and chair of the supervisory committee for the Alfred-Allegany Educational Employees Federal Credit, member and chair of the Alfred Village Planning Board, and board member/treasurer of the Alfred 21st Century Group.

Although Anne was 82, everyone told her that she looked years younger. Her secret, as she frequently told younger women, was to "always moisturize!"

She is survived by son, Michael (Jennifer Evans) of North Hollywood, Calif.; daughters, Cynthia (Stuart Yaniger) of Grayslake, Ill., and Amy (Jeff Fretz) of Pasadena, Calif.; sister, Leanne Keel of Waterloo, N.Y.; brother, Leo (Sue) of Rochester, N.Y.; many grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

At Anne's request there will be no calling hours. A memorial Mass will be held on Monday (June 30, 2014) at 2 p.m. at St. Brendan's Church, Almond, where Anne was a communicant, lector and former parish council member.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to SS Brendan & Jude's Parish, Alfred Ambulance Fund, The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, or the .

Funeral arrangements are in care of the Dagon Funeral Home, 38 Church St., Hornell, NY 14843.
