Anneke, as she was known, died Dec. 8, 2011, in O'Fallon, Mo. She was born in Hagerstown, Md., and grew up in Cavetown, Md. She worshipped at Bridge of Life Church. Anneke was a student of Grace Academy, and graduated from Day Spring School in Frederick, Md. Later, she married Kenneth Saylor and resided in Waynesboro, Pa., where they raised their three children. Recently, they moved to Missouri, to advance her career as an insurance representative and live near her husband's family while Kenneth attended college to study engineering.
Anneke left behind a loving husband of 15 years. Kenneth is a full-time student and former U.S. Marine. They have three beautiful children, Amelia, Bailey and Kyle.
She preceded her parents, Robert and Nancy Foltz of Boonsboro, Md., along with her three siblings and their spouses, Robert II and Ruth, Brian and Renai, Daniel and Davita, and their families. She will also be dearly missed by her in-laws, Greg and Virginia Saylor, as well as her brothers-in-law, Greg Jr., Daniel, Christopher and Shawn, and their families.
She loved her family very deeply and will be missed by all those who knew her. She was an exceptional mother, wife and friend. Anneke would often extend her hand and home to those less fortunate. No one ever went without, when she could lend a helping hand or feed a hungry mouth. Anneke was an animal lover and rescued many pets. She loved the outdoors and exercising her "free spirit." Anneke continuously encouraged their children in both sports activities and educational opportunities.
The memorial service will be held Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011, at Baue Funeral Home, 311 Wood St., O'Fallon. By her wishes, a cremation will be performed and her ashes passed to the sea, a place of peace for her.
A second memorial service and celebration of her life will be held Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2011, at 7 p.m., at Bridge of Life Church, 14 S. Potomac St., Hagerstown.
