Anne Louise (Cunningham) Whitcomb, 82 of Glenwood, Iowa, passed away on February 20, 2020 at the Hillcrest Country Estate Cottages in Papillion, Nebraska.
Anne, one of seven children of George and Lillie (From) Cunningham, was born on August 15, 1937 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. She graduated from Saint Francis High School in Council Bluffs. Through the years, Anne worked for the Glenwood School District, Glenwood Opinion-Tribune, the law office of Tim Markel, the offices of Dr. Robert Fryzek and Dr. Jackie Young, and at LaRue Drug, until her retirement.

She was a wonderful wife, mom, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and a good friend to all who knew and loved her.

CandleOur Aunt Anne was the most giving and loving woman. From the time I was a little girl, through my time as a young mother, she guided me through life. Even though our family were miles apart...we were and still are close.
Seeing her struggle these last few years, was very difficult, but it shows us how strong she was. Rest now honey, the Lord is with you. Rest in Peace
