Anna Heida was born on January 29, 1921 to Peter and Clara Fischer in Sacred Heart, Minnesota. She was the second oldest of eight children, attending a country school through the 8th grade then helping at home caring for her younger siblings. Anna and John Heida met church and were married on January 29, 1941 during a blizzard. There were 6 foot snow drifts on their wedding day making it difficult for their bridal party guests to arrive. They lived in Minnesota until 1975 when they moved to Everett to be near their daughters. They attended Westminster Presbyterian Church and enjoyed their home at the Fairway Estates. They had two daughters and were married 61 years prior to John passing away in 2002. Anna was a hard worker all of her life. She made sure there were always baked goods for her guests. Baking, gardening, pulling weeds and doing puzzles were her favorite pastimes. She delighted in playing on the floor with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. On her 90th birthday she suffered a stroke and moved from her home to a wonderful adult family home; Two Pines in Everett where she was lovingly cared for by her “second family” Florica and Marcel.
