Anne was born to Stanley and Genevieve (Huss) Copenhaver on July 13, 1959, in Carrington, N.D. She attended Estabrook County School until the eighth grade and graduated from Carrington High School in 1977.

She attended North Dakota State School of Science in Wahpeton, N.D., in 1979 and graduated with a Secretarial Degree.

In 1998, she met the love of her life, Tom Newhouse, they married in Las Vegas in 2002. She and Tom lived in Tucson, Ariz., with their loveable dogs.

Anne and Tom faithfully came to North Dakota to visit family each summer and would schedule it around class reunions or events in Carrington. This is what Anne enjoyed most in life, getting together with close friends/classmates from Carrington, her family and having fun!

Anne had close Arizona friends; Kim, Sonia, Sarah, Martha, and Laurice, as well as Carrington friends, who will forever have a special place in Anne's heart. They helped her deal with her illness and the loss of Tom.

Anne was a classy lady, with an exquisite taste for fine dining. She was an amazing sibling and will always have a special place in our hearts as well.

She was preceded in death by her husband Tom.

She is survived by Stanley and Genevieve Copenhaver and siblings: Pat, Carrington; David (Joan), Carrington; Jane (Graham), Reynolds; Mary Jo, Jamestown and Steve (Pam), Sykeston. She was also survived by many nieces and nephews.
