Together Bob and Annie had 7 children Glen (Mary) Buer, Neal (Lynn) Buer, Barbara Wittersheim, Carol (Charles) Buer, Nancy (Louis) Slade, Joanne (Peter) Buchhop and Beth Buer; 17 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. She loved her children and grandchildren and spent her life giving of herself to them. She could often be found teaching them some of her favorite activities like sewing and baking from scratch. Many of her grandchildren over the years have received her sewn animal creations and blankets. Annie loved children and could often be found teaching Sunday School or working in the nursery at whatever church she happened to be attending. She had a strong faith and loved her family and she will be missed by all those whose lives she touched.
