Her beloved sister, Mrs. Leona Meteer, predeceased her in 2011. Anne was born to German immigrants, the late David and Ada (Rupple) Windemuth in Detroit, on Oct. 7, 1925. After her marriage in 1945, they spent a few short years in Miami, Florida and Petoskey, Michigan before coming to Saginaw in 1952. She loved Holy Cross Lutheran Church and was a large part of all church activities, especially the Ladies Guild, singing in the choir, and teaching Sunday School. She also worked for J. L. Hudson’s for several years. She then spent many years of retirement with her beloved husband in Florida. Anne loved her family and dear friends and was an avid Detroit Tiger fan.
