Known as “Chef Anne” to her friends in Arkansas, Anne shared her love of life and faith in Jesus with everyone she met.

Anne met her husband and love of her life, Derek Dwinell, through their shared love of cooking, serving their community and Zelda. Anne and Derek were joined in matrimony on February 1, 2019.
