  3. [S639] Allen Mortuary, 24 Apr 2010, n/a, Big Oak Flat resident Wallace “Wally” Robert Anker died at his home after a brief illness. He was 82. He was born in Newark, New Jersey to Margaret Corcoran Anker and Joe L. Anker during a year-long car trip exploring the Unites States, the only year either of his parents spent outside of their native California.

    Wallace Anker was a graduate of Sonora Union High School and the College of the Pacific, where he studied Economics and Mathematics. He continued his education at the University of Heidelberg, Berlin and Columbia University, New York City. While in the Army he played trumpet in the prestigious United States Army Band in Heidelberg, Germany.

    He began working in local lumber mills at the age of 14. His lifelong love of the Sierra Nevada started while working on trail and cabin crews throughout college. He worked for the Comptroller of the Currency in Washington, DC and then as an international banker. He was head of Asia and Australia and then Europe for The First National Bank of Chicago.

    After retiring he returned to the family ranch in his beloved Tuolumne County. He was an active volunteer. Two of his proudest accomplishments were his work on the Clavey River and as a founder of the Southern Tuolumne County Historical Society. He was instrumental in building STCHS’ museum and library in Groveland.

    His interests and hobbies were diverse and numerous. He was a voracious reader of a wide range of topics. His travels took him to many parts of the world. He shared his passion for local history, camping, packing, and hiking in the Sierra Nevada with his family and many others. Besides his family, perhaps his greatest pleasure came from his love of music, including classical, opera and jazz.

    His great-grandmother Margaret Priest was the founder of Priest Hotel in Big Oak Flat in 1853, a stagecoach stop for the journey between San Francisco and Yosemite National Park. His last project was to reacquire Historic Priest Station, where he was raised, after it had been out of the family for 38 years. He took great pleasure in welcoming old and new friends at Priest Station Café since its opening in August, 2009.

    He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Helga; children Kim Anker Paddon of Big Oak Flat and Los Angeles, Denise Anker and Steven Anker of Big Oak Flat, and Conrad Anker of Bozeman, Montana; daughters-in-law Jennifer Lowe-Anker and Cecil Cole Anker; grandchildren Lydia, Denise and Molly Paddon, Max, Sam and Isaac Lowe-Anker, and Olivia and Sophie Anker; his sister, Anne Coldsmith of Jackson, Wyoming; a large extended family, and many lifetime friends.

    A memorial service is scheduled for 11AM, Saturday, June 19 at Mary Laveroni Park in Groveland.

    Donations can be made to STCHS, P.O. Box 1849, Big Oak Flat, CA 95305 or Vichara Monastery, 10049 Ernst Road, Coulterville, CA 95311.
