SACRAMENTO, CALIF. - Born Feb. 17, 1926, Anne passed away peacefully in Sacramento on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2009. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 40 years, Tom, and her parents Robert and Katherine Star.

Born in Helper, Anne moved to Sacramento in 1980. She quickly established a close-knit social circle that would remain dear to her until her passing. Above all, Anne valued family. Anne's loving spirit extended beyond her own family and beloveds. She volunteered calling the homebound for over 26 years. She had a passion for the arts-music in particular, and imparted on all the importance of creativity and culture. Incurably outgoing, Anne was known throughout Utah and Sacramento for her good humor, compassion and easy charm. All those who came into contact with her will miss her but the memory of those interactions is lasting.
