Anne was special. Coming from a large family with five sisters and a brother, she always wanted to be a mother herself. She lived to see her two children grown and to see two (of an eventual eight) grandchildren. She was foster care legend in Fairfax County for many years and was always quick to make friends and to look for ways to help others more in need. Her too-early death in 1996 was a great loss to many family members and friends.
