    Arlington VAClarence, Kevin, and Ed,

    My deepest condolences on the passing of Anne. My memories of her go back to early childhood as my brothers and sister and I used to go with the Simonitsch clan to the Red River Valley Fair and then stop in with the Linds as we waited for our parents to pick us up.

    This morning at church I had a vivid image of Anne in the middle of a prayer — so strong that I realized I had to reach out in some way. When I couldn’t find a phone listing for Clarence and Anne in Fargo, I typed her name into Google and was shocked to find her obituary.

    When my mother passed away, the first message on my parents’ answering machine was from Anne. I didn’t even have to hear her name to know it was from Anne.

    Anne was a very special person.

    I just found out that your Mom passed away, I’m so sorry. She and Mom kept in touch for many years. They had that Irish heritage in common. Your Mom always sent Mom a card on St. Patrick’s Day without fail. They used to visit back and forth about family. Anne will be missed as well as Mom who passed away a year ago Februay.

    Dearest Clarence, Edward, Kevin and your families,
    Anne was a brilliant reader, an avid keeper and sharer of family stories and a prize-winning cook. Hours of giggling together at the lake are to be remembered with great joy. Treasure all your memories.
    We send our love and prayers.

    .To Clarence and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Ann’s passing. She was a dear lady. Happy to see she was with her family in her last days, she was so proud of her children and grandchildren. My fondest memories were of sharing times at their lake home and being a guest in their home. Clarence and my husband Charles worked together at FM Adjusting for years. Bless her memory to all of us.

    Ed, Kevin and families so sorry for your lost. Anne was a great lady. She was a wealth of information from family history, news, people in general and life. The times we shared with fits of giggles, what our grandkids were doing, stories we shared, and laughs about spell checking in the paper. She was truly a person we all wish we could be. Our love and prayers.

    Clarence, Ed/Kevin and families-So sorry about the loss of your wife, Mom, and Grandma. Anne was almost like a 2nd Mom to us Herbecks. She had a fiesty personality and wasn’t afaird to share her views. She enjoyed sending letters and of course clippings from the paper! I always enjoyed family times at holidays and the lake, or even stoppin to visit in Fargo. Always enjoyed her phone calls. She truly lived her family and had a deep faith. God Bless Anne! Love-Jean and family

    As a teenager, I became best friends with Anne’s son, Kevin. What stands out in my memory was how Anne’s eyes lit up when anyone approached her, the warmth of her smile would embrace you even before she hugged you.

    Her son, Kevin, became like a brother to me, and Anne my surrogate mom. In the years after graduation, over time and distance, our contacts became less frequent. But, Anne was faithful, and every year we received her Christmas Letter, with all the news that had happened in the previous year, it followed us like a thread, and remained a constant connection, that often brought back cherished memories I had shared with her family.

    I remember one Christmas Letter in particular, she sent an article about my maternal grandfather Michael Fitzgerald, who I had been named after but had never met. That was Anne…thoughtful, kind, and generous with her time and affection. My wife Shellie became concerned when we didn’t get her letter this year and felt in her heart that something must be wrong.

    Smart, funny, bright: Anne won many contests with her skill as a writer. I don’t remember what the prizes were, or how many, but some were esoteric to say the least, and she poked fun at her self if you made too much of her prowess. And she would regale you with the time she won a cow and 500 pounds of butter, or some such odd tidbit. And then she’d smile. (That was not one of the actual prizes, but an example of her self-deprecating humor.)

    She was devoted to her husband, Clarence, who was the neighborhood fix-it man. He was from an era when a man’s basement and garage were his absolute domain. Clarence could…and did… repair almost any item he came across. He is the epitome of a gentleman. Quite, unassuming, I know, that he was Anne’s rock. Steady and patient he doted on Anne, and she on him. If Anne was my surrogate mom Clarence was my surrogate dad and Ed, my older brother. I loved them all.

    The last time I saw Anne and Clarence was the day before they moved to Reno to live with Ed and Irene. The first thing she said with a big smile was, “You were on my bucket list.” It shocked me to hear that, but as it sunk in, I was honored to be among one of the last people she wanted to see before she passed.

    I didn’t say it then, but, Anne you were at the very top of my bucket list.
    Love Mike
