She was born July 11, 1938 in Falls City, Nebraska where she was the oldest of 7 children to Fred “Fritz” Adam Roesch and Mabel Francis (Noyes) Roesch.  Anne spent most of her childhood in Southeastern Nebraska living in Falls City, Dawson, Nebraska City, Shubert and other towns.  She was attending Otoe High School her junior year when her family moved to Grants Pass, Oregon where she graduated in 1955 at age 16.  Anne returned to Nebraska City after graduation and began working at the Pat A Cake Cafe and Foley’s Jewelry Store.  It was at the cafe where she met and fell in love with Gary Pickett from Nemaha, Nebraska.  They were married on May 4,1956 and soon afterwards the start of their family began with the birth of their son in June of 1957.  Gary' s 47-year career with Western Union in 1955 moved the little family to Falls City, Tulsa, Oklahoma, Little Rock, Arkansas and other towns along the way until he arrived at Tinker Air Force Base in 1962.  A daughter was added to the family in 1966 and soon the family grew more after weddings and grandbabies were born.  For 60 years the Pickett family would call Oklahoma City and the Mid-Del suburban area their home.  During the 1970’s and 80’s, Anne served as homeroom mother and Sunday school teacher in her children’s classrooms and later returned to work as a receptionist at Lee’s RV City where she retired in 1998.
