Fun fact: Despite the challenges of the past 18 months, their family has been blessed. They are thrilled to welcome a wonderful young man into their family through his marriage to their daughter; and they are equally exited to welcome a beautiful young woman into their family upon the upcoming marriage to their son in October. Anne and her husband are expecting first grandchild to be born next year!

Anne loves to cycle. She is currently recovering from a broken back so she can’t go possibly cycle as far as our Chair Tim Peters, but she is like the little engine that could, and does what she can.
