The Adams County Record Wednesday, January 4, 2012 Council Grieves the Loss of Community Icon to work for her charges' grandfather, Dr. Speck. Fred Turner, her husband of 45 years, married her in Houston. Glemser, already estab- lished in Council, encour- aged the couple to move here, and they bought the home she resided in the rest of her life. She worked as an assayer for the Silver King mine. She loved her children, Erika and Chris, and her 7 grandchildren. Her son, Kurt, was killed by a drunk driver in 1999. She never had a lot of money, but she always managed to fred ways to help people when they needed help. Here are some of the stories her friends and family shared about her kind deeds and community actions: In Texas, she would go to the Salvation Army and buy clothes, take them home and mend them, then distribute them to the poor in Mexico. With her friends Becky Daniel, Marion Feil and Irene Dodge she started the Council Quilt Show, friends made, and rode on, 4th of July parade floats. The high school stu- dents worked at the FHA dinners to earn credit to pay for their school trips. Students whose parents helped with the din- ner earned more credit. Anneliese worked at the dinners as a proxy parent for students whose par- ents couldn't or wouldn't help. She enlisted friends' help to provide head- phones and CDs for women in prison. One day during a church Bible study, a desperate young woman walked in. Anneliese didn't hesitate to get her fed and I'fll her car up with gas at the station. A single mom with two children broke her leg. Anneliese col- lected dona- tions of food to feed them through the winter. "She could organize anything," said longtime friend Marion Feil, as she recalled how Anneliese oversaw High Tea Parties, Red Hat Club lunches, bereavement dinners, and numerous birthday celebrations. Patty Hasselstrom said she knew she wasn't going to be on this earth much longer, but she urged her friends to keep the birth- day parties going. by Deb Wilson A community of friends is saying good- bye to Anneliese Turner this week. A legend among Council residents, Anneliese passed away last Saturday, Dec. 31, with her beloved family around her after a pro- longed illness. Outspoken, adventur- ous, passionate and deter- mined, Anneliese was "a force of nature" according to most who knew her. "A true artist in the kitch- en," said longtime friend Marion Feil, she loved to cook and celebrate, and gathered her friends at every opportunity. Her kindness was undeniable, although her strong spirit sometimes frightened people at First. Her daughter Erika remem- bered, "My mom could put the fear of God in anybody, but she would drop every- thing she was doing to help someone in need." Her lifelong friend, Fred Glemser said, "She never knew a stranger, and never took no for an answer." Her accomplish- ments, like her amazing cooking, are unforgettable for those who knew her. She was born in 1926; in the small town of Jaisburg, which is now part of Stuttgart, Germany.

Would it be that you had heard of Him once, or that you had heard a story about Him? Or maybe that when you need help you pray to Him? When I first met my wife, she did not know who I was. She may have heard things about me, but she didn't "know" me. It is the same with Jesus. If you do not know Him, personally, and Adams County 4-H have a relationship with Him, how can we answer that question? In James 2:19 it says, "Do you still think it's enough just to believe that there is one God? Well, even the demons believe this and they tremble in telTor!" And also in James 2:23 it says, "And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: Abraham believed God, so God declared him to be righteous." He was even called "the friend of God". How well do we real- ly know Him? I call my wife my best friend. Why?. Because I spend so much time with her that we know each other. I often know what she is think- ing and what she will say before she says it. This is the kind of relationship we need to have with our Lord, to be able to know Him so well, we can say He is our best friend, and that we know Him per- sonally. So if God asks you the question, "Who do you say I am?" do you have an answer?. Fred Glemser remembers pulling her long braids in grade school. She retaliat- ed by thumping his nose. As a young woman, she became a nanny to a US military family in England, and moved to Texas with them, leaving her brothers and sisters who still live in Germany. which will run for its 23rd year this summer. She and her friends ran a profitable craft co-op, the Christmas Goose, in downtown Council. She pushed hard and refused to give up until she got a Lutheran pastor to come here from McCall to give Sunday services. In the' states she went Her. grolp ,pf;church Weather Weird ........ ......... .... ..... Continued from front page While there were plen- ty of extremes in 2011, there weren't many record-breakers, no extreme cold or heat. The only below-zero spell was a minor one, the first 4 days of January. There was no 100- degree heat wave until the very end of July did we begin to get consis- tent mid-9Os, and fortu- nately the warmth lasted into October to produce many reports of the larg- est, sweetest (and latest) tomatoes in memory. The biggest factor driving the weather this year was the extended cool spell, from early spring well into summer, enough to slow the cycle of the sea- sons for 8 months. Adams County's aver- age annual precipita- tion is 20.64 inches. December is the highest average month at 2.7 inches. Kevin's info for Glendale: Actually, January and February were both dry, almost 30% below normal in precipitation, but March was more than 200% of average (7.60 inches here at Trail Creek), and May/ June were well above too. July was actually normal in rainfall, even though the temperatures were on the cool side. September was extreme- ly dry, almost no rain; but October more than made up for that with 260% of normal. Then November and December were dry, half of normal. But in spite of all the see-sawing, the year- total precipitation was .... just average.. One curious phe- nomenon you may have noticed is that some trees shed their leaves earlier this past fall (although they may have shed them later than usual) but others, like walnut and apple trees, held their leaves much longer, some- times suffering broken limbs as snow from our early storm loaded them down. Kevin pointed out that the trees retaining leaves longer seemed to be the non-natives spe- cies. Meteorologists who look at long-term pat- terns say that the late 19th and much of the 20th century--the period that our cultural memo- ry considers "normal"-- produced relatively con- sistent weather patterns when compared to a longer-term view of the records. Measurements over longer periods have shown much more vari- ation and extreme, It may be that the "real normal" may be more like what we have seen more recently, GREAT DISCOUNTS ON ALL NEW 2012 ARCTIC CAT SNOWMOBILES,  Ao, Vs & SIDE'BY'SIDES "I1 5 O OFF IN STOCK ARCTIC CAT APPAREL & ACCESSORIES ,',pv Limited Time Offer A memorial held for her Jude's Catholic Saturday, January 7 at 1:00 PM.
