A dearly beloved, long time El Paso resident, Anna Theresia Cardona passed away on Tuesday, March 15, 2022 at the age of 78. She was the daughter of Notburga Sauer and Johann Kaup who preceded her in death, as did her sister Elfriede. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Nelson Cardona, her daughters Peggy and Evelyn and her son Thomas. She is also survived by her sisters Maria and Gertrud and her brother Franz. Anna had a passion for Animals (especially dogs, cats and birds), Roses, Gardening, Reading and Musical Theater. She was amazing – she could speak three languages (German, English, Spanish) and she never forgot a birthday and sent cards to everyone. She was a kind, selfless, caring, thoughtful and considerate loving soul, a beautiful human being. She was gentle, quiet and she touched the lives of so many. She loved her friends and family as much as they loved her. She will truly be missed. She is gone, but will always live on in our hearts.
