Anna and I met when I started working on Saturdays at Ross & Hardies in 1986. We became good friends and I was blessed to know her. She loved her family so much. She holds a special place in my heart.

Aunt Ann was great to be around, she would play cards with me when I was a around seven years old. She would also give me snips of her plants so I could grow my own, she had way of making everyone smile, she will be missed.

Anna was a wonderful person and very good friend. We lived across the street from each other. We watched our children grow up together. We spent a lot of time together in our early years having coffee or wine sharing our lives . My memories are many; but the most fun was Christmas Eve spent with Anna and Jerry and girls. Jerry always had a fire going and Anna's dinner was terrific with her special home made lefse! We played Christmas music. Jerry introduced us to
(Grandma got run over by a reindeer). Those were great times none of us will ever forget . Anna opened her home and heart to us,she was always there to help and listen to her neighbors! Anna, you will be missed by many and you have touched many lives . We will meet again one day. I will look forward to seeing you again.

Jerry, Anita & Erica, Our hearts go out to you and know the hole Annie's passing will leave in your hearts. She was LOVE personified and could not be happy unless all those around her were happy. She had a quiet unassuming way that belied her incredible strength. We had some fun times together over the past 50 years but we knew we would never forget our trip to Santa's Village because we heard of Elvis's passing on the car ride back. It was a momentous day and we were together. Annie, until we are together again, we love you and say hi to Elvis if you run into him.
