A force in the Santa Ynez Valley has died. You knew her, Anne (Chester) Hourdequin. You met her at your home or she invited you to hers, to learn. You have met her dear friends on your porch. Their message is clear. It is wholesome. It is comforting. It is from the most widely distributed and respected book in the world. Anne loved teaching from the Bible (see jw.org). Anne's confidence and hope were contagious. She was born in Wisconsin on May 5, 1927 and went to sleep on December 19, 2018, having spent the last 60 years in the valley. Anne is survived by her husband of 38 years, Robert, her son Bruce Navas (Pat) and daughter Anna Gustafson (Karl) and grandsons Michael, Gregory and Ryan.
Memorial services will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, January 19, 2019 at 1:00pm.
