She was born on June, 22, 1921, to Hugo and Marion Stroetzel and raised in Rye, N.Y. Anne married James E. McMurray in 1945 and moved to Ft. Anne, N.Y. where they owned and operated The Busy Bee Hotel, a name which pretty much captured Anne's spirit throughout her life. They later relocated to Glens Falls, N.Y. She outlived her brothers, Glenn and Edward, husband, James E., and second husband, Jack Wiberg.

Anne is survived by twin sons, Jim, Jim's wife, Carol, and John and his wife, Judi and ''3rd son'' Dave Patton and wife Tawn. She was blessed with grandsons, Ryan, Adam, Christian and Stefan and three great-grandchildren, Aidan, Cavan and Zayne.

She worked at Raytheon Corporation in Massachusetts as a contribution to the war effort. Anne was named a ''Hidden Treasure Volunteer'' by the Glens Falls Community Theater where she and husband Jack participated for many years.

Since Anne grew up by the ocean she loved to swim and therefore loved our recent excursions to the beaches of Maine. She also loved to accompany us in a golf cart at Concord Country Club appreciating the birds and landscape. She maintained and appreciated her long term friendships in Glens Falls and made new friends with the staff and residents of Havenwood Heritage Heights where she spent the last year and a half. The family would like to express their utmost gratitude for the capable and loving care provided by the staff at Havenwood. They enjoyed her wit and positive attitude until the end. Memorial contributions can be made to The American Cancer Society or to the charities supporting the American Indian to which she was moved to donate for many years. A family service of reflection and remembrance will be scheduled in March at the First Presbyterian Church of Glens Falls. To Plant Memorial Trees in memory, please visit our Sympathy Store.
