    On behalf of Savannah Area Republican Women, I send our sincere condolences to Anne’s family. She was a force unto herself!! Her faithful support and extensive experience in the state House of Representatives guided us in the right direction on many occasions. She was a friend to many and always wiling to offer helpful advice. We have missed her so much since her move to Springfield and no one could ever fill her shoes. Rest in peace, dear Anne.

  10. Linda Lynes, Retired WFHS Guidance Counselor says:

    Anne was indeed a lady of grace who could light up a room with her laugh and her voice. She loved her family and pitched in when needed to assist in raising her grandchildren. She was a dear friend to Windsor Forest High School, a supporter in so many ways and always there when one of the children was involved. She was a fierce protector and always fought for what is right. I admired and respected Anne and was always in awe of how involved she was in so many things and how much she alone could handle. She will be missed by many!

    I have known Anne for many decades. I worked with Anne and against Anne on many political issues. I have never expected anything from Anne that did not come from a position of honesty and conviction. We have lost a true Public Servant and a true Friend.

    My wife and I have enjoyed our conversations with Anne over the years.
    Our deepest sympathy to the Family and the Community.

  17. James Hall says:

    For as long as I’ve been involved in local Republican politics, Anne was a fixture. While she often sharp words, they were often mixed with words of encouragement. I didn’t know her when she was a state representative, but it is clear to me that our community is better off because of her service. May she Rest In Peace.
