It is with sadness that I read of the passing of Anna Mae. I cannot remember a time that I did not know her. From being neighbors, to 4-H, to piano lessons (no, I didn't practice), to shearing sheep, buying milk, numerous farm dogs, and working in the field for A.J. it seems that she was always there. She has left a wonderful legacy to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren of hard work, being a faithful friend, always being in the present for others, and always with grit and determination. May Mary, Barbara, and Helen be blessed with memories of her and her legacy.

So good to hear from you! So many good memories of spending time with your family as I grew up! Your folks were like second parents to me and I always loved being with them. A person truly missed out if they never had the opportunity to take a road trip with Cecil at the wheel- I recently ran across the photo of you and your folks at the baseball field in Stillwater on that trip.
We were blessed to have our parents and hopefully we can pass on some of the wisdom to our young ones. All our best to Jessica & the family!

What an exceptional person the world has lost. A teacher, musician, busy farm wife, friend to all; most importantly a loving (and loved) wife and mother. Barb and I met in kindergarten at South School and are close friends to this day. Memories of field trips to the farm to see the sheep, later sleepovers with Barb when we’d roam the farm and pastures for hours and come back to a delicious home cooked meal by Anna Mae. Her demure and sweet smile will always be with me. Mary, Barb and Helen may your hearts be comforted and gently healed by loving memories and the love of family and friends.

I was lucky that Barb shared her mother with me. While step-family relationships can be awkward, Anna Mae showed me so much kindness, it was easy to enjoy her company. I hope she knew how much I appreciated her friendship and how thankful I am that our paths crossed.

I have wonderful childhood memories of Anna Mae and A J when I would visit them on my horse.. we lived a mile and a half from them and our families were close friends. Anna Mae and my mother continued their friendship through the years and I got to be included in some of the get together. She will be greatly missed.

We loved visiting with Aunt Anna Mae whenever we were able to stop by to see her. She was always active, even in her later years in the care home with music and embroidery. She was usually cheerful, and happy to have visitors.
Anna Mae was greatly loved and she will be missed by all who knew her.
with sympathy,
Jim & Martha Turner
