I hope and pray this message bring comfort and soothe the pain that you are experiencing at this time. What has help me to cope and deal with lost a love one is found God's Word the Bible in Psalms 113:5-8 "Who is like Jehovah our God, The one who dwells on high? 6 He stoops down to look on heaven and earth, 7 Raising the lowly from the dust. He lifts up the poor from the ash heap 8 In order to make him sit with nobles, With nobles of his people." "

Anne was such a loving mother and grandmother. She was always so kind to me and my children. I will never forget how sweet she was to crochet a beautiful blue blanket for my son Luke when he was born. It will always be a cherished gift! We will remember her fondly. Love to the Starek family!!!!!!

My husband, Larry, and I met Anne through Kelly, Dave, Noah, and Grace. She was a beautiful lady, and we were honored to know her. Her love for her family was apparent in all that she did. She even crocheted a beautiful afghan that we proudly display in our living room. Now it is a symbol of family, love, and warmth. Our condolences to the family.

Anne was a very special lady whom I had the privilege to meet through her daughter and family. When I first met Anne, I noticed her beautiful smile. She had a gentle way about her. I loved to here her talk since I had never really met anyone from Ohio. She shared stories with me about Ohio . From the moment I met her , I could tell how much she really loved her daughter Kelly, son in law Dave, and grandkids , Noah and Grace. She happily took them to their practices when she was needed. That is where we talked the most was at martial art classes. My sons took it the same time that Noah did. If we weren't cheering the boys on then she often would have a book we would chat about or I would admire her crouquet pieces she was working on. I admired how easy she could do this. I had the desire to learn which she gracefully offered to teach me but I never had the patience for. One time when the kids were out of school & I took my boys over to Kelly's where Anne was watching them, she tried to teach me. We laughed and laughed. She couldn't quite understand why I couldn't get past the basic stitch. Anytime that Kelly and Dave had us over for a party , Anne would be there and she always made it a point to take the time to talk with me. Ever so often , she would say, Whenever you are ready to try again, I will teach you. She was one special lady and loved by all who met her. I know she will be missed dearly. I often heard about her famous pizza she made. Noah and Dave said it was the best. I am sorry we never got the chance to make it together! Kelly, Dave, Noah, Grace I send my prayers and love your way. May God wrap his arms around you and comfort you as only HE can. I know you will see your beloved Anne again one day in Heaven.

I only knew Anne for a short time but that short time was the best time of my life. She brought such joy and peace to my life and her gentleness was always a comfort. Her face lit up when she smiled and that had a warming affect on all those she met. I know she did not leave this earth alone as our God sent His angels to gently take her home. Kelly, Dave, Noah and Grace, I know a big piece of your life is missing now but God has plan for each of you and know that your friends are here to help ease the pain. God bless you all always. Love you dearly donna carter and family

Things I will remember about Anne; her smile, her love for her daughter and grandkids, her patience when she attempted to teach me to crochet and the times spent with her the last couple of months sitting, talking, reading scripture and praying together. I am blessed to have known her the short few years I did.
