From Dennis Wilson, Chestertown, NY

A couple of years ago, Anne directed a production of "Dracula" for my community theatre group, Our Town Theatre Group, in North Creek, NY. I auditioned for the show and was rewarded with the title role. Anne liked my interpretation of the character and was very supportive during rehearsals and performances. I learned that her leg was hurting during this period, so much so that walking was difficult, and she had to direct often from a sitting position. Despite the pain, she directed the show quite well and it was a big hit locally.
Her dedication to her art was inspirational to the entire cast. Godspeed, Anne. You continue to inspire and to be loved.
