Anne Nedrow, age 89, of Sac City, Iowa, passed away on Friday, June 29, 2018, at Park View Rehabilitation Center in Sac City.

Anne was born November 24, 1928, in Norfolk, Nebraska to James and Marjorie (Sasse) Crowley. The family moved to Hartington, Nebraska, where Anne attended high school, and in the tenth grade she met the love of her life, Bob Nedrow.  On June 5, 1949, Bob and Anne were united in marriage.  This union was blessed with three adopted children: Dan and twins, Lisa and Larry. 

 Following graduation from the University of Nebraska, Bob and Anne moved to Broken Bow, Nebraska.  They learned of a drug store that was for sale in Sac City, Iowa, and opened Nedrow Rexall Drug on October 1, 1952. Anne was active in church and many community activities.  She was the past president of the Sac City Chamber of Commerce, Matron of Eastern Star, member of PEO, served as an Elder, Deacon, and Sunday school teacher at the Presbyterian Church, and Cub Scout den mother.  In her spare time, Anne loved to play bridge, travel, and cheer with Bob for the Big Red of Nebraska.  

Nearly twenty-five years ago, Anne was diagnosed at Mayo Clinic with the onset of Alzheimer’s.   She learned it could not be stopped, but with experimental drugs at the time, they could slow it down.  Like many others, this dreaded disease took its toll on Anne.   What never changed was her recognition of family and members of the church and community she loved, as she would somehow recognize a face when out and about and give them a wave and hello.  That’s the Anne she would want you to remember.  

Anne is survived by her three children: Dan  Nedrow of Omaha, Nebraska, Lisa (Tom) Garrison of Lincolnton, North Carolina, and Larry (Peggy) Nedrow of Charlottesville, Virginia; Grandchildren: Chase (Samantha) Nedrow of Dallas, Texas, and Cole Nedrow of Atlanta, Georgia; sister Gwen Campbell of Ridgecrest, California;  brother Jim (Lila) Crowley of Jefferson, Iowa; and sister-in-law Janice Crowley of Houston, Texas, along with many nieces, nephews,  extended family members and friends. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bob; brother, Keith Crowley; brother-in-law, John Campbell; and sister-in-law, Bicky (Nedrow) Lee. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the First Presbyterian Church, 812 Audubon Street, Sac City, Iowa  50583, or the Alzheimer’s Association  @

“Anne was wonderful person and a great business woman. I really enjoyed the years I worked with both Bob & Anne at Nedrow Drug store from the time I started with Shull Accounting in May of 1972 until they closed the store. Bob always had a story or joke to tell and Anne would love to laugh along with what ever Bob had to say. Anne was usually all business at the store and knew the true dealing of the store which she managed from behind the scenes. The store was a great place where you could find just about anything you really needed. Both were also great members of our church and always ready to serve where needed. So glad I had the privilege to know both Bob & Anne and will remember all they did for our community.”
