    I met Anne when she and Adrie came to Dunsford United Church. Her warm, inviting smile led to concerned, thoughtful conversations. Anne was always generous, helping as many ways as she was able. Anne is missed.

    Anne was one of the nicest lady I have ever met in my life, always very accepting and full of knowledge. She has a family who love her and adore her. Her passing is a sudden and it breaks my heart, but I believe she is in a better place now being with her beloved husband. My prayers are with the family and hope this crisis will be over soon, Rest In Peace Anne.
