Anne was born June 1, 1917, to John Peter (J.P.) and Rosamond Victoria (Bille) Adler in Marshfield.

She attended Milwaukee Downer College for two years and went on to earn her baccalaureate and a degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Anne then earned her graduate degree in economics from the University of North Carolina. After earning her graduate degree, Anne went on to proudly teach economics to the GIs coming home from World War II at the University of Toledo.

Anne also was extremely proud of the fact that she was one of the first women to earn a stockbroker's Securities and Exchange Commission license and enjoyed trading stocks and money management until late in her life.

Anne and her sister, Elizabeth Adler of Marshfield, started the Marshfield Community Foundation, as a memorial to their parents, J.P. and Rosamond Adler. The Foundation was started with a challenge grant of $25,000 in 1993. Anne and Bette wanted to make a long-term impact on their hometown community of Marshfield. Today, through Anne and Bette's beneficence, the Marshfield Community Foundation gives grants and scholarships to community groups and students and continues to grow in its endowment to a current value of $3.3 million.

Along with her gift of giving to others, Anne's heart was filled with the love of the companionship of her dogs -- in particular the schnauzer breed. In the 1960s, Anne had a champion schnauzer named Duffy, and then at age 81, Anne took on a schnoodle puppy (a cross between a Schnauzer and a Poodle) named Morgan. Together they spent their summers together at Anne's cottage in Waupaca on the Chain O' Lakes.

Anne also enjoyed being a member of Waupaca Historical Society and the Waupaca Genealogical Society. Anne has been a member of many other clubs and organizations, and enjoyed bird watching and photography.

Memorial gifts may be directed to either the Marshfield Community Foundation or your local Humane Society.
