The oldest of the children of Elizabeth Ann (Walsh) and William Charles Fecht, Ann Elizabeth Fecht (f-92) played a vital role in her family's life. At informal occasions she was called Annie by her brothers and sisters, who turned to their big sister regularly for advice and direction until her death on 29 June, 1958. Ann was born on 28 June, 1889 in Mexico, Missouri. She lived most of her life near that town. She was given the rite of First Holy Communion in St. Brendan Catholic Church in Mexico on the 5th of October 1901. The Rev. John J. Dillon officiated. On October 7th of that same year Anne was Confirmed in the Catholic Church by the Most Rev. John J. Kain, Archbishop of Saint Louis. (Church records courtesy of Tom and Carl Fetterhoff –2002)

Please note: This picture is an excerpt from a group photograph. It was selected from the original due to her strong individual image. This was also done in the previous photograph of William Campbell. Personal information avoids a connection by marriage to protect the identities of modern family members. If you are a bone fide member of our family, just send me an e-mail and I will be happy to provide you marriage details, if I have them. If you post a wedding announcement, obituary etc. with maiden names, I will view the information as public and included it on this blog or the Fecht Family website.
