Strong, courageous, indefatigable
Started her journey and refused to quit
Like the Wild West she forged a way in Santa Fe
Her life an example of wisdom and determination

What she didn’t know she learned
Those things required she dealt with
Things that would have stopped others
Simply took a little more time, a little more elbow grease

A good son, a good life
Built out of her standing up to strife
She would not quit, she refused to lose
Life was hard, Anne was harder

A gentle woman, kind and caring
Neighbors, church, community
Astute, shrewd, in a tough, difficult business
She loves the Lord and cares for others

Brainy, resourceful and teachable
Her life has real value and worth
She did it with her Lord and the strength he gives her
A friend, a planner, a giver, all who know her love her


A Tribute to a Great Woman who made her own way
Clay Corvin – On a visit to Santa Fe, NM. 6/20/18
