After a short time of teaching in Durham and Seagrove, NC, she came to Asheboro High School where she taught for 30 years. Anne loved teaching and sports. She was either making sure football programs were printed and distributed or driving a car full of cheerleaders to away games. Anne loved life and found joy in every day she lived. She loved to find antiques to decorate her home. She loved watching football and tennis. She enjoyed time with friends and family. She loved her little dogs and growing plants and flowers.
