Anne (Cricket, as she was known to her family) was born on March 1, 1965, in Ohio, the youngest of eight children. She spent the first five years of her life traveling, since her father was in the military. He retired in Mountain Home, where she grew up.

Anne has two sons, Scott and Kristopher Swenson. Anne enjoyed outdoor activities, such as camping and fishing, and she also liked to find great bargains at local thrift stores.

She worked for a time in one of the thrift stores in Mountain Home and excelled as a paralegal.

She had a ready sense of humor and loved her Boxer dogs, Chaos and Sophie.

Anne remained friendly with her ex-husband, Danny Swenson, and although separated, with her husband, Dana Butler. Anne also loved spending time with her good friend, Doug Collins.

We love and miss her and wish her peace.
