With deep sympathy to Jim and the Croce family. It was a real honor and blessing to know Anne and Jim when they came to Warwick Forest. Anne was always supportive of the staff and the residents. A real leader, an exceptional volunteer, a wealth of experience in working with people and a genuine kind hearted soul. She will be dearly missed but always remembered with great fondness and admiration.
