Dear Timpe family,
I graduated with Anna Mae in 1940.
I was one month older and I am not sure who is left of our class. I had not seen her in many years. My health is very good and live at home.
May her journey be good

God rest her soul.

Mary Frances - class of ND 1940.

On behalf of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ I extend my sincerest condolences to you Charlotte and the entire family. Anna Mae's presence is still felt in the hearts of the Sisters she lived with and the lives she touched as a Poor Handmaid Sister. Her life of service and witness both in and outside of religious community shined a bright light on this world!
