Obituary of Anne Rider Wynn
Anne Rider Wynn, 81, of Zieglerville, PA, passed away on July 7, 2021, at Frederick Living. Anne was the wife of David Frederick Wynn, with whom she shared 61 years of marriage.
Born in Richmond, VA, on January 9, 1940, Anne was the daughter of the late Maurice Cowl Rider and Barbara (Bolt) Rider.
Anne moved with her family to Pennsylvania in 1954 where she met her future husband. During her student years at Eastern College and later through early married life Anne was employed by the Presbytery of Philadelphia as a group worker with inner city churches.
The next two decades saw Anne take on the role of mother and Army wife. Assignments took her and the family to Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, California, and six years of foreign service, including four years in Germany. During this time Anne also served as a Red Cross Volunteer at Valley Forge Military Hospital while her husband was in Vietnam.
Civilian life led to more moves to Cincinnati and Buffalo before settling in back in Pennsylvania. Anne remained active in volunteer service, most notably as a foster mother for Bethany Christian Services, caring for more than thirty newborn infants over a span of twelve years.
An avid quilter, Anne created an endless legacy of quilts which she bestowed on children, grandchildren, and others.
Always active in her church, Anne is lovingly remembered as one who prayed faithfully for family and friends, maintaining a “prayer wall” in the home with pictures and notes as reminders, including pictures of all the foster children that had been in her care.
In addition to her husband, Anne is lovingly remembered by her children, Lynette English, Telford, PA, Elizabeth (& David) Scofield, Washington, PA, and David Wynn Jr., Pine Forge, PA; her grandchildren, Jonathan (& Abigail) English, Elizabeth (& David) Kramer, Daniel Scofield, Anna Scofield, and Grace Scofield; her great-grandchildren, River, Trinity, Sunshine, Ransom, Rowan, Adelaide, Silas, and one baby on the way; and her brothers, Bruce Rider and Russell Rider.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday, July 25, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at Frederick Living – Main Auditorium, 2849 Big Road, Zieglerville, PA 19492.
