    It doesn't say how she died. I subbed in Anne's classes many times in the mid-90's. She ran a tight ship. Sorry for her family's loss.

    Anne was a motivator and an inspiration to the students she taught and a profound illuminator of their successful educational paths. It was truly an honor to have had Anne as my mentor, leader and Department Chair at Grange Middle School. She “guided” our young and sometimes naive principals/administrators by using facts, principles, regulations and good old fashioned common sense. A few feared Anne’s tenacity but all respected her opinion, experience and knowledge. Anne made my early months and years much easier to negotiate and she left an indelible impression on me and the contemporary school staff during her tenure. Thank you Anne and may your family and friends find comfort in these words. With sadness and love. Dr. Willie Hancock
