a. Note:   : Ane Margaret Dakan, 98, of Orangevale CA died Thursday, September 12. She was born to the late Hans V. and Emma S. Andersen, June 22, 1915, in Maywood, Illinois. She was the middle child of five, with two older brothers and two younger brothers. In the early 1920's her maternal grandmother, for whom she was named, came for a year's visit from Denmark. She graduated from Proviso High School in Maywood in 1933 and worked for a few years in Chicago. She married the late Donald Lafayette Dakan in 1936. They lived in West Virginia, where her husband worked for the Hope Natural Gas company as an engineer. They were there until the outbreak of WWII when her husband was stationed in England. During the war, she and her daughter Greta lived part of the time with Hans and Emma Andersen at their home at Bass Lake near Knox, Indiana, and part of the time with parents-in-law John W. and Maude Dakan in West Virginia. Following the war the family lived in New Jersey, where their son Donald was born. During the 1950's they lived in Rome, New York where Ane was active in the Rome Civic Chorale, and daughter Greta met and married Anthony Cosentino. The family were members of First Presbyterian Church in Rome. In 1961, the family moved to La Canada, CA where she lived for nearly 20 years while her husband worked for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. They were members of the La Canada Presbyterian Church. Ane was active locally in the Descanso Garden Guild as well as in the California Federation of Chaparral Poets, which reflected her lifelong love of poetry. Following retirement Ane and husband moved to Santa Cruz, CA in 1978 where they lived for about ten years and were members of the Santa Cruz First Presbyterian Church. In Santa Cruz she continued her membership in Chaparral Poets, and joined the Shakespeare Guild. She was active writing poetry and composing music, taking music composition classes at Cabrillo College and being involved with ensemble performances. She was also very active in Great Books discussion groups which continued when she subsequently relocated to Fair Oaks, CA. Ane is survived by her son Donald C. Dakan (Rebecca) of Santa Rosa, CA, grandsons Anthony Cosentino (Debi), James Cosentino (Amy) and Thomas Dakan, great grandchildren Travis Cosentino, Cassandra Cosentino, and Lauren Cosentino, and great-great granddaughter Desiree Cosentino.
