Anne was born on August 20, 1925, one of eight children, to Stefan and Maria Bauer of New Rochelle, N.Y. A native of New Rochelle and graduate of New Rochelle High School, she worked as an executive secretary in New York City and served as the Corresponding Secretary of the Catholic Women’s Club of Westchester. She had a flair for business and worked for many years in real estate in Larchmont – culminating in running her own business, Anne K. Dinkel Realtor. A trailblazer in a male-dominated industry she graciously lent her support to the young upcoming agents new to the field. She was passionate about her work and grateful for the trust and respect of her clients.
Anne was also one of the longest members of the Larchmont Shore Club, joining in 1956. She enjoyed playing tennis, loved swimming and was a dedicated “swim team Mom”, driving her children and their teammates to swimming meets all over the county and helping out at the events. She took great pleasure in seeing her children, and then grandchildren, enjoy the seaside in Larchmont and after retirement, in Chatham, Cape Cod.
Anne had a wonderful independent spirit, was adventurous by nature and loved traveling. During her many visits over the years to her family in Switzerland she journeyed all over Europe and also delighted in visiting countries further afield such as Malta, Morocco, and Turkey. She had a long and happy life and will be remembered as a woman of deep faith. She was a fun-loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and good friend.
