Anne had a wonderful mother who fostered in her children a love of literature in a way all great mothers would hope to. Every afternoon, no matter what else was happening, she stopped and read to her children. Anne would eventually become a very well known and loved author.
Sadly she is most remembered for the many tragic events that surrounded her marriage to famous aviator Charles Lindbergh. In 1932 her infant son was kidnapped and murdered.
We can only imagine what sadness must have laid in the heart of this adventurous, brilliant woman who endured so much during her life. She was the first American woman to earn a glider pilot's license and after her husband taught her to fly she logged many hours in several planes exploring and charting air routes between continents with her husband.
Anne passed away after a period of declining health in 2001. Her daughter wrote a book about her life called "No More Words", it chronicles the last years of her mothers life.

I don't think that she is mostly remembered for the suffering she endured around the kidnapping of her first son Charles A. Lindbergh Junior. I really think that she's remembered mostly for the beauty of her writing, for the fact that she didn't agree with her husband about staying out of WWII yet stayed with him, and for the fact that she was one of the first and most talented women pilots in the US. I've always admired AML, as she refers to herself in her diaries.
I think she was quite a remarkable person. Yes, of course she suffered immensely because of the kidnapping And the loss even after her memory had begun to depart she seems to have remembered the child she lost. But it's for the beauty of her writing that I will always remember her.
I wish I could write that way. I do my best and I often think of her when I'm working. Isabella Fiske McFarlin

If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness, and a willingness to remain vulnerable. A. Lindbergh
