Anneliese was born in Stettin, Germany Nov. 30, 1924, a town later destroyed in World War II. Fortunate to have vacated on a Red Cross train where she served as a nurse and meeting her beloved husband George Kennedy (30 years of service in the U.S. Air Force) in 1950, where he was stationed at the time in Germany. He preceded her in death after 50 years of marriage in 2001.

Raising three sons, and supporting George who served multiple tours of duty in more than 30 countries, Anneliese and George  returned to the USA stationed in Vandenberg Calif., until subsequently retiring and relocating to Cape Canaveral Florida. Though retired, George went on to work at NASA for 20 more years under the Department of Defense contracts. Later again after finally permanently retiring, Anneliese and George moved to the mountains of east Tennessee in 1983 where they resided until 2000. Then relocated west to Seeley Lake where their son Scott lived.

When not taking her sons to all their various school sports, baseball, football, swimming and surfing, Anneliese enjoyed the beaches and later exploring the vast mountains and rivers by Jeep. She also loved camping, fishing and exploring the various National Parks. Gardening, sewing and reading novels of the great west and history were everyday parts of life. She was kind and generous to everyone she would meet and come to know.

 Anneliese will be dearly missed. No services will be held at her request.
