Annie, warmly known by many as Auntie Annie, was a loving, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and aunt and she will be greatly missed.

All who knew Annie especially enjoyed her homemade Italian cookies (pizelles), sponge cake (for which she won a first place prize) pies, cookies, cream puffs, ravioli and gnocchi.
