She was born on Nov. 1, 1939, grew up in Hubbell Michigan, and graduated from Lake Linden High School.  She moved to Detroit, fell in love with Garrett Kunz, and the two were joined in Holy Matrimony at St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Hubbell, MI on July 11, 1959.  She is the daughter of Joseph and Leona (Schon) Kessler.  She worked for many years as a Program Assistant for the UW-Madison Athletics Department.  Anne shared a special devotion to Blessed Mother Mary.  She was an Associate of the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Agnes, as well as an accomplished piano player and an incredible cook.
