I have many fond memories of Sunday afternoons spent at the Heuss household; especially eating Mrs Heuss's amazing baked goods. She was a great lady. My condolences to her family.
What a day that will be
When my Jesus I shall see
And I look upon his face
The one who saved me by his grace
When he takes me by the hand
And leads me through the Promised Land
What a day, glorious day that will be
There'll be no sorrows there
No more burdens to bear
No more sickness and no more pain
No more parting over there
But forever I will be
With the one who died for me
What a day, glorious day that will be
Anni can experience that now and you will soon and see her again.
The Lord is coming quickly!

I remember Anni having me (and Dolly Henricks) over for coffee when we lived in Antigo, and the meal she brought over when I was quite sick. I still make her great apple cake recipe. She was a kind and lovely lady. Our condolences to the entire family.

I got yo know Anni when our boys played hockey together. She was a wonderful kind gal and always had a smile. She was very proud of her family. Sending thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil All the days of her life. She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands. She is like the merchant ships, She brings her food from afar. She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants. She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms. She perceives that her merchandise is good, And her lamp does not go out by night. She stretches out her hands to the distaff, And her hand holds the spindle. She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet. She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants. Strength and honor are her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: “Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all.” Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord , she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.
Proverbs 31:10-31 NKJV
Anni was a Great friend. No matter if you agreed or not, she always respected your point of view and related it to god. Our deepest sympathies. Alex and family
My husband and I wish to express to you and your entire family our deepest sympathies on the passing of dear Anni. We pray for the Lord's comfort and strength for you all during this very sad time. I also write on behalf of my parents, Paul and Bonnie Mennenoh of Audubon, Iowa.
I have very fond memories of Anni when you were still living in Iowa and I also remember what a wonderful cook she was and it was a real treat to be invited for a meal at your home. I also remember her from our times at Lowry Bible Camp in Minnesota many years back when Neal and Sheila were still very small.
Her work on earth is done and she has been called to her heavenly home. May she rest in peace, safe in the arms of our heavenly Father.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Heuss family. Annie enjoyed her family and caring for her grandkids. She was a ray of sunshine when you saw her and you felt the strong presence of her faith. Annie will be missed by so many.
My deepest sympathy for your loss of a most kind lady.Anne brought me to christian women's club and to our Bible study group .She lived her great belief .
I met Anni briefly many years ago when I lived in Antigo. Bruce, one of Anni's children, was a very good friend of my son, David. Over the years Bruce made contact with us - once at David's funeral in Neenah, and again, at my grandson's funeral in the Milwaukee area. I most certainly give credit to his mother, Anni, for raising such a beautiful and caring young man. Peace be with the entire Heuss family at this time. (Marlene Kraft Voight, Pepin, WI)
I knew Anni when I was just a child before her and Charles had any children and she was such a kind and loving person. I loved when they would come to our house for visits. Praise God she is with Christ and we will see each other again one day! My sympathies to Charles and her children.
So sorry for your loss. You have our deepest sympathies.
I was a teen when Anni came into our family. She was so sweet and kind! I loved her right away. We will see her again in our heavenly home! Love to all my cousins. My prayers r with you. Bonni Heuss Novak
Dr. Heuss, you and your family have our deepest sympathy in the passing of your wife. My husband Tom and I only met her that one time a few years ago when we were waiting by the automotive department at Walmart for our vehicle. She was a lovely caring lady who made friends very easily. I liked her right away and always will remember how lovingly she talked about you. Keeping you in our prayers. Tom and Rose Egging
I didn’t know her well, but whenever I saw her she was so friendly to me. I will miss seeing her when I’m out and about. So sorry foot your loss.
