Anne Elizabeth Hawkins Findley

Anne Elizabeth Hawkins Findley knew how to love. It’s her greatest legacy. She loved everyone she knew fiercely and unconditionally. She was the best mother, best nana, best daughter, best sister, best aunt, best daughter-in-law, best sister-in-law, best mother-in-law, and best friend…she was the best person.  She was our everything. She lived her life laughing, caring, loving, joking, being silly, and dancing. Her life was a beautiful adventure. We love you to the moon and back, mama bear. You are our favorite mama in the whole wide world, and there are billions of mamas out there.

  • Anne always had something kind to say about everyone. She knew what to say to make you feel welcome and like you were important to her.
    She also loved babies- it was fun watching her with our son Gabe when he was little. She always wanted time with him and never seemed to tire of him, even when he cried.
    My memories of her will always be her laughing and drinking a glass of wine, while we tell her of Gabe’s latest milestones.
    She will be missed by many, including our family. We love you girls and hope that you are able to find some comfort in each other.

    Mi hermosa señora Anita !!
    The most amazing human being we have met. You leave so many memories and teachings and I treasure those conversations deeply in my heart. Thank you for sharing your memories and life adventures with me as you drank a cup of coffee with your favorite creamer— I still remember how happy you would get when Michelle would surprise you with it. Seeing your smile as you would tell me all your adventures with your daughters and how much you loved them inspired me to always try to be a good mom.
    I was super blessed to have you in my life. My mother and I love you so much. All of our silly faces that we would make to each other and our cha-cha dance are my favorite memories and I can keep going but I would end up writing a book.
    We will love you and keep you on our hearts always!

  • A celebration of life is planned for March 28th, 2021 pending Covid restrictions. More details to follow.

  • She certainly what’s the best daughter-in-law my mother-in-law could possibly have. She was my friend as well and we shared so much together. We had the most wonderful times living in Colorado as well as in Las Vegas. She was responsible for me having three wonderful beautiful granddaughters. I feel so lucky to be a part of this family.. Life is not the same without Anne, as the glue that has held us all together. In good times and bad. I will miss her forever.

  • She will be missed. My blessings to Michelle, Kristin, and Allison.

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending love and prayers to her family.

    I have nothing but fond memories of our years together and the 3 greatest joys of my life – the birth of our beautiful 3 daughters. They were prepared well to go out into the world. Anne will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known her.

    I’m so so sorry to see this. I am Anne’s old friend. We were friends from 2nd all through school. I remember when she went off to collage and then got married and moved away from me. I always missed her. She made me laugh a lot and we just about live together for years of our young life. She loved my mother and really could make her laugh too. So silly. I was close to her family and she to mine. This hurts and I will miss her even though haven’t seen her in so long. To Anne’s daughters and Mike and Sue I am so sorry.
