    • Known to the older cousins as “Aunt Toots” (as recalled by Ruth Hering Roth)

      Loved to fish where she lived in Florida. Anne Elizabeth Turse was a fixture at Anglin's Pier at Fort Lauderdale and earned the nickname "Mackerel Annie."

      When she died, at 76, in October 2001, South Florida Sun-Sentinel outdoors writer Steve Waters described her as one of the top anglers at Anglin's Pier and an ambassador for the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea fishing pier, where she taught generations of young anglers the secrets of pier fishing.

      When the Spanish mackerel were running, locals said, she would be on the pier five or six days a week, Waters wrote.

      Anne Turse also spent hours tutoring her grandson Ben, according to his mother, Sara.

      "They'd be out back, on the dock, trying to untangle a mess in the line on a fishing reel, having a great time together," she said.
