Anne was first my typing and business teacher, then my friend when I graduated. I hadn't seen her in years, as I moved to Maui, but we sent our "hellos" to each other through mutual friends and relatives. She was a special and sweet lady. My heartfelt condolences to her family ❤

Learning typing from Ms Wolfenden has been so helpful.
Rest in Peace.

I was a student in Ms. Wolfenden's typing class in high school and remember well her speed tests. Thanks to her I reached 100 perfect words a minute (maybe just once) but this prepared me for my career as a legal secretary and eventually was able to retire from the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. She definitely had a hand in my fabulous career.

I was one of her students and as a minister I have shared a memorable story of her in many of my sermons over the years. No doubt this wonderful lady will be missed. My hands are lifted in prayers for this family.

Anne and her mother, Mrs Stella Maloney were such nice neighbors and two wonderful ladies. I had Anne as a teacher at MSHS and will miss her very much. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time..🙏

Aunt Anne was a character. I was not able to come see her as often as I would have liked due to me living in SC. She was the last of my mother's imitate family. The family will miss her. Love Aunt Anne and at piece to know you are now with your parents and sisters.
