Anna was a kind and cheerful lady. Linda spoke of her often when recalling high school days. She was a comfort to me and my family in our time of need. Chris, I believe you were truly a match made in heaven. I pray she is enjoying eternal life and sharing humor and kindness.

Anna is certainly a light gone too soon. Chris and I grew up on the same street in McAllen, Texas, and we have fond memories of our time spent together as we grew up on 5th Street.

I met Anna when she was in 7th grade. She and Chris were in Mr. Finch's Algebra class and I was the "teaching assistant". Anna was a beautiful, quiet girl and was very smart. In spite of the subject matter, this was such a fun class.

We lost touch as adults but, true to Anna's form, she found me and reconnected. Chris and Anna added my home as a stop during some of their trips to the Valley from Colorado. Anna was always so interesting to talk to as well as incredibly kind. We also communicated regularly with text messages and messenger. I will miss those random texts about various subjects or pictures that she sent to me.

That Anna loved and valued Chris was very apparent. She valued her family and friends very highly and made a point to keep in touch. She was certainly a nurturer and reaching out to people was a skill that she had finely honed. Anna also loved animals, especially Max!

Anna will be missed greatly! Prayers continue for peace and comfort for Chris and all who loved her.

How sad I was to hear of Anna’s passing. Living in the same neighborhood, Anna and Chris would pass my home while walking Max. Anna always had a pleasant word to share, as well as her warm smile. Our main visits were at neighborhood functions. Anna would always remember our discussions from previous visits and ask about updates. May she now rest peacefully and be comforted in heaven.

One afternoon at my home in Houston, there was a knock at the door, which I assumed was a solicitor. I asked who it was, and a voice answered, "Chris." I asked, "Do I know you?" He said, "You should. I'm your cousin!" I opened the door and saw my cousin for the first time in almost 40 years, and I met Anna, who was responsible for tracking me down. There was an immediate connection to her and she maintained contact for the next few years through her texts. I was to enjoy their company one more time in person, when my husband and I met Chris, Anna, and their dog Max at a local outdoor bar and grill. Anna was brilliant at research, especially ancestry research, which is how she reconnected Chris and my family. The tragedy in this is that a rare brain disease called Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease rapidly diminished her beautiful mind. I will be donating to the CJD foundation in her name: cjdfoundation.org
Rest in peace Anna! Love, Barbara

I feel blessed to have known Anna. She had a great and caring heart and the ability to connect with people right away. God bless all who were fortunate enough to know her and experience her wonderful personality. She was gracious and yet still spoke her mind firmly and with humor in a classy way. During this hard time I think it's important that we all will keep her goodness in our minds and hearts. All of my most sincere condolences to Chris and everyone else during this time. Thank you Anna for sharing your friendship with me.

Anna will be missed. I will remember her kind and sweet demeanor. I will miss her sass when she didn't agree with me. She was generous to a fault. Chris, you are a wonderful and dedicated husband. My prayers and condolences on your loss. Tom

I worked with Chris for many years at the Glendale Post Office. Whenever there would be an after work activity or party, Chris and Anna would be there. She always joined the fun although she did not understand the post office sometimes. Thinking of you, Chris.
