Anne was born on March 31st, 1930 in San Angelo where most of her life was lived. She was very self-reliant. She loved cats, dogs, plants and anyone who came near.
Anne was a housewife for years and always our mother. “The hardest, yet the most rewarding, job in the world.” She was an incredible cook and excellent teacher of “the art of cooking”. Anne cooked at numerous San Angelo schools including Goliad and Lake View High School.
Anne stood for years as a crossing guard on Armstrong and 22nd, protecting the children and waving at the those that passed.
This seems such a small amount to share on the long and productive life that Anne lived, but all these, color-filled events and memories are difficult to express and scribe on black and white paper.
You will understand this if you were fortunate enough to know Anne Clare Dickens.
