She enjoyed going to her grandchildren's sporting events, plays, choral concerts and graduations. She saved the programs from every one. She also helped her in-laws with their grocery store in Klingerstown and her sister, Jane, with her gift store in Pottsville. Anne was an avid reader and loved books about the Kennedy family.
