OBITUARY


Anne Bridget Rader, 84

 Anne Bridget Rader of Warsaw died Monday, April 10 at Gallatin County Nursing and Rehab. She was 84.
She was a member of the National Organization of Women, The National Abortion Rights Action League, and The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. She protested at Stanford Syntex against the use of animals for experimentation, which led to two major companies abandoning animal testing.
In 1984, she was part of a class action lawsuit against Ronald Reagan, the Secret Service, the San Jose Sheriff’s Department and the San Jose Police Department for violating her right to protest at a presidential campaign stop. She won her case and donated her portion of the settlement to the law team who sued on her behalf.
When she was in her 60s, she started distance running and won several races in her age group. She also returned to college to pursue her degree in English, graduating in 2007.
She moved to Warsaw from California in 2010 to be closer to her daughter and began volunteering at the Gallatin County Animal Shelter, participating in county parades, attending St. Joseph Catholic Church, and the Gallatin Writers Group.
She is survived by her husband, Herb Rader; three daughters, Daria Kelleher, Kimberly Forslund, and Sybil Vasche; two sons, Lloyd Trozzolillo and Keith Trozzolillo; seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
She requested there be no funeral service and, instead, asked that people in her community do something nice for someone else.
