Anne and I went out occasionally in HS, including prom, but I did not really know what "out" was, so it was desultory. We then reconnected at the Reagan Library when I had a speaking engagement nearby.. We had fun assessing its accuracy and testing our memories about grades 6 to 12 in Decatur, IL. Anne was thinking of writing about J.A. Sanders, our teacher for 6th grade. I wonder if she did. I regret her passing.

I too had the privilege of dating Anne a few times.  She was a wonderful person, kind, and gracious.  She will be missed.

Anne and I were best friends in school and we first met in Mr. Sanders 6th grade class.   We have made fun of that time for many years.   I will miss her and send my prayers to her family on her passing.

Anne & I were friends in Jr. High; she was a great listener and always had witty comments.  I remember we all wore knee socks,, neck scarves and bermudas back in the day; Anne was always perfectly dressed.  We corresponded in the last 4 years; she wrote she was proud of her career as an RN, swimming daily in her pool, having an ecumenical family,  and beginning road trips with her husband.  She was always a hard worker & sweet as an angel.  I found this pix of a BD she came to along with Jill Herdman, Nancy Gray and two of my three sisters (Anne and Nancy).  RIP, dear Anne.  We will all miss you and were lucky to know you!

I am sorry that I cannot find any information about Anne's passing. Apparently the family wishes to keep the arrangements private. 

Some classmates have received invitations to the service in Encino CA. Her husband is a physician in Hollywood. 

When Dennis School started it's addition in 1955, Mrs. Vitton taught 6th grade at the school to those living close and north. 

For the rest of the sixth graders, we went to Woodrow in Mr. Nesbit's class or Mr. Sanders. The 30 kids in Mr. Sanders class had a rude awakening to arbitrary and intense discipline and teaching. It was a memorable year and Anne was a gem. Our two 6th grade classes were unique in that we spent four years in Jr. High!
