Anne was a long time figure skater who spent many of her childhood and early adult years on the ice, along with her figure skating she was a member of the Findlay High School Orchestra as a violist.

After Anne graduated from Findlay High School in 1984, she went on to attend the University of Toledo and studied Accounting. In 1993, Anne Fleming met David Rinebolt in Findlay, they went on to live in Washington DC in 1993 and made their way back to Findlay in 1996. Anne and David went on to have two children, Maxwell and Spencer. Anne was a great mother and found so much joy in caring for children, this led to her spending many years working at Lincoln Elementary as a lunch monitor, through which she was able to positively affect the lives of the children who walked through its doors. She was a lover of animals throughout her life, growing up having dogs and later finding a love for cats leading to her having many cats and dogs throughout her life; as well as putting up with the many fish that her children got from the Hancock County Fair.
She also greatly cared for others and loved to host parties to spread the joy that she felt. During the holidays, she would hold nothing back, whether it be the 20ft inflatable Santa Claus that she would put up around Christmas or the skeletons and webs that would be put up around Halloween at her home on Lima Street. She is survived by her sister Sonja (Fleming) Katawczik, and her two sons Maxwell Rinebolt, 25, and Spencer Rinebolt, 22.
