Anne Burnett Malcolmson von Storch died on Sunday, January 27, 2013 at Carol Woods in Chapel Hill, NC.
Anne was born in St. Louis, MO. on Dec. 16, 1910. She graduated from the John Burroughs School in St. Louis and received her AB degree from Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr, PA.
Immediately after World War II, Anne worked at the Central Intelligence Group, the precursor to the CIA.
Anne was a dedicated teacher and author. She taught at the Girls Latin School, Chicago, Ill. Upon moving east, she taught at Potomac School, Washington, DC for many years and she also became a volunteer and mentor at an inner city school in Washington.
Anne was a prolific writer and re-teller of both American and English folk tales. Some of her books include “Yankee Doodles Cousins”, “Mister Stormalong”, “The Song of Robin Hood” and
“Miracle Plays”. She also adapted stories by Geoffrey Chaucer and William Blake for middle school students, introducing many readers to these classic writers.
Anne moved to Carol Woods on Feb. 1, 1985. She was involved with many organizations on campus; her particular interest was the Carol Woods Library. She never stopped learning and teaching, and decided in her nineties to learn Spanish and tutor a recent American immigrant in English.
Anne is pre-deceased by her husbands, Charles Malcolmson and Earl von Storch and her companion, Don Schier. Her sister, Carolyn Delavan, passed away several years ago.
Anne is survived by a niece, a great niece and nephew, several cousins and many friends.
