Anne Schuster Wade passed away on August 17, 2017. She had waged a courageous battle
with cancer for many years. Anne was born in New Orleans on October 28, 1933 to Frank L.
and Julia Schuster Clark. She was the granddaughter of El Paso pioneers, Bernard and Emilie
Angerstein Schuster. Anne graduated from Austin High School and attended Texas State
Women's College.

She lived a full life, always planning that next trip and looking forward to visits with friends
and family. She was a Life Master in the American Contract Bridge League, the President of
the St. Francis Altar Guild, and also served on the Church of St. Clement Altar Guild. Anne lived in Colorado Springs for many years
and the friendships she made there have lasted a lifetime.

She was a volunteer with Hospice in Colorado Springs and "adopted" cadets from the Air
Force Academy. She moved back to El Paso in 1988, where she continued her work as a
Hospice Volunteer and was a very active member of the El Paso Bridge Club. She married Dr.
William H. Wade in 1990. They traveled together to numerous sites in England and the US.
Anne and Bill were active members of the St. Clement Anglican Church. All of her life, her
first love was her Lord followed by her family. She never missed a family event; she was
always there to support and celebrate her family.

She is preceded in death by her son, Robert W. Hitchcock in 1995, as well as her sister, Mary
Emily Chambers in 1972 and her brother Bill Clark in 1983.
She is survived by her loving husband Dr. Bill Wade, son, Edward R. Hitchcock and daughter-in-law Alesia,
three precious grandchildren, Karen Hitchcock and Jennifer and Sean Hitchcock.

Also, her niece, Cathy Lazier and nephew Scott Chambers, as well as great nieces and
nephews, Laura Lazier, Randy Lazier, Lisa Lazier Daniels, Julie Good Parks, Kyle Good, Joel
Chambers, Emily Chambers Kaulkman, William Chambers, Ella Chambers as well as two great
grandchildren, Ryer Benson and Jaeden Hernandez. Also surviving are Leo and Joan Schuster,
Karen and Riley Stephens, Sally Schuster, and Rev. Leo and Ellen Schuster.

Over the last year,she had several loving caregivers to whom we owe a deep debt of gratitude. Her abiding,
unfailing love and loyalty to God, family and friends leave an example for us all to follow.

A Memorial Service will be held at The Church of St Clement at 11:00 AM Monday August 21, 2017 with a reception to follow at Church of St. Clement. Services entrusted to Martin Funeral Home West
