Anna was such a great lady. Her passion about health paid off since she lived to 94! I loved our visits about healing naturally, canning and home cooking! And we loved the same kind of music, old time! She is now with her husbands, our dear friend Bruce and other loved ones. With our sympathy, C'Dale & Phil

Rest in Peace, Anna
To her family, I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She is no longer in pain. She was such a nice lady, I enjoyed visiting with her. She & I graduated from LPN school together. That's when I first knew her & has been a friend ever since, seeing her many times at Bethel.
My sympathy & Prayers Darlene

Sorry to hear of Anna's (Ann, as I knew her) passing. Susan and I went to school together and my dad was the minister at the church of Christ during that time. I enjoyed visiting with both Chet and Ann - they would send flat bread to me at college - made my day back then. Sweet people.
