Anna Mae is survived by her two daughters, Lori Moldenhauer (and husband Thomas) of Manhattan and Lisa Hanschu (and husband Ronnie) of Ramona; two granddaughters, Nicole Stenzel of Manhattan and Anna Weber of Lincolnville; and two great-grandchildren, Christian Guilford and McCoy Cross, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Her parents, grandson James Weber, and brothers LeRoy Sader and Alvin Sader also preceded her in death.
Anna Mae always will be remembered for her kind heart and nurturing soul.
Her family remembers all the holidays and birthdays where they got to enjoy her cooking, most notably her desserts. There never was a shortage of desserts!
Family members also remember that whenever one of them would travel anywhere, she always would say, “Go slow and watch the corners!”
