The second eldest of eight children, she attended Catholic school in Detroit, Michigan and nursing school in Ontario, Canada before accepting a job at The Children’s Hospital in Detroit. There she joined the effort of starting the second Children’s dialysis unit in the United States. During her time as a pediatric nurse, she met her loving husband Fredrick “Fritz” a resident pediatric surgeon at Children’s Hospital who she was married to for over 50 years.

Anne lived a full life as a wonderful mother, homemaker and friend. She loved plants and flowers, becoming a Master Gardener and a host to the Grosse Pointe Garden Tour. You could often find Anne in the kitchen whipping up an incredible meal on the fly, she was an enthusiastic cook. She had a passion for sewing and loved to make homemade gifts for family and friends. Anne was an artist with a gift for drawing and painting. She was a true friend to all that knew her. Anne will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

I have so many great memories of Anne but one that was so special was our Mediterranean cruise where the four of us had a lot of laughs. My sincere condolences to the family.
