Condolences

Condolence From: Jim Craig
Condolence: Anne has been a source for admiration, affection, and awe,
since I first met her in class fifty-five years ago. She
was teaching Social Functions of Libraries, a core course
in the graduate library program at Rutgers University.
As Anne was leaving Douglass College, Donald Cameron,
University Librarian, noted that Anne was exchanging one
regiment for another.
Anne and I crossed paths again after 1968 in the Five College
Librarians group when I joined the library of UmassAmherst.
About 1987, Anne wrote a letter of reference for me when I
applied to and was accepted for a Master of Education degree
also at UmassAmherst.
After Anne’s retirement, we stopped to see her several times
in Maine including dinner with friends from South Thomaston,
one of whom continued to meet her in adult education.
A few years ago, I learned that she and my son shared the same
birthdate, so I began to send her birthday cards. My son
turns 42 today. He was impressed with sharing the day with
Anne.
Anne believed that librarians should express themselves
clearly and concisely, which I always thought about when
communicating with her. Her cards and emails often expressed
a message in a few words. She used shackled in a recent mail,
because of her deterioration and mine; hearing loss, vision
loss, stroke. I had hoped a friend could bring me the 200 plus
miles to the service.
Her last email said to keep in touch: I can with my mind and
with our correspondence
Henry Van Dyke’s poem Gone From My Sight, is another way.

Condolence From: Suzette McAvoy
Condolence: All of us at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art are saddened to learn of Anne's passing. She was a longtime supporter and trusted friend of CMCA and the arts in Maine. She believed in the power of the arts to transform lives and strengthen communities, and she led and lived by example. We are grateful for her guidance and support over many years, and send our condolences to her family.

Condolence From: Mary Jo Maydew
Condolence: Anne was a long-time, valued colleague of Mike's and mine at Mount Holyoke College. We saw her only infrequently after she retired and moved to Maine, but we always enjoyed our visits and our occasional correspondence. Anne was a truly great lady and we are poorer for her passing. Our thoughts are with her family.
