Birth: 1944
Death: Mar. 30, 1985
Walloon Brabant, Belgium

Annie was a physiotherapist. She served as nun, but left the religious life behind. In 1967, she moved in fellow ex-nun childhood friend, Jeanine Deckers (aka as The Singing Nun, Soeur Sourire).Together they founded a school for autistic children, but it failed from lack of funds.
Mentioning their financial difficulties a note, she and Jeanine both committed suicide by an overdose of barbiturates and alcohol. Although they died as suicides, the Catholic Church agreed to a church sevice and burial in consecrated ground. The two friends are buried together.

Wishing peace to your soul and to Jeanne's. My heart is saddened that you both suffered so much. My wish is that you are together forever now in a place where pain can no longer touch you.
