We were shocked to learn of Anne's passing in the News Graphic the day AFTER her funeral. Such a young, vibrant, caring person -- it seems impossible that she is gone. We knew her from St. Francis Borgia Church. She regularly volunteered to help out at the flu shot clinic and other health related ministries. Always smiling and always supportive. Nobody has mentioned her beautiful singing voice which we especially enjoyed when she was seated behind us in church. She is singing with the angels now. Our deepest condolences to her family. Just know that she is missed by a wider circle than you can imagine.

Anne was the best therapist I ever had. She always had a big smile on her face and a very positive attitude all the time. I was her client for quite a while and she was always fantastic at motivating me to try as hard as I could. I will miss seeing her at Aurora. My family offer our deepest condolences and prayers for the loss of a excellent caring woman, who's compassion for others was unbounding. The Galler Family

Paul,
Anne will be especially missed by me, and I'm sure by the the many others she helped, through therapy at the Y and Aurora. I don't know where I would be now if she hadn't been there to encourage me to keep fighting.

Buddy in life
Annie was one of my best friends for 35 years!!! I have never met a more caring, devoted human in my life!!!! She even continued to give by donating her kidneys and helping 2 very lucky people!! Two things I am grateful for is she did not suffer and she lived and loved life- traveling and spending time with everyone in her circle! She was the glue for her family as well as her friends!!! My fun memories include all our yearly Buddy Bash trips and our Halloween days in PT school that we were always a pair for - Hans and Franz, Dr Frankenstein and Igor and the Baby Jesus and Joseph. She was so full of life and love!!! She was my travel companion to all our Buddy Bashes so a lot of special time to share and talk! She was my confidante and my go to . She was always there when you needed her- drove 7 hrs to my Mom's funeral in freezing temperatures to be with me and then drove back that same day!!! That is the kind of person she was!!! I cannot express how much she will be missed and what a hole it has left in my heart and our group!!! Love you tons, Annie!!!
