Jack and Linda,
My happiest memories of Anna are of her coming to my kitchen door with wonderful food and staying for long chats. I shall miss her greatly!

Kay and I are so sorry for your loss. Anna was an exceptional, very caring individual. What Kay remembers most is how Anna could work cross word puzzles in her head without making any entries. I just remember how genuinely nice she was and what a voracious reader she was and her keen intelligence. Al & Kay Thomas

I always looked up to and admired Anna. She was such a wonderful, wise and humble person. The memories of times with her in Clemson are so precious to me.

Our first memory of Anna was her holding a homemade blueberry pie . It was for my family, in celebration of a birthday. What was most impressionable about this moment is Anna's giving spirit . Anna's willingness to help others even when she was going through treatment was inspirational . She always put others before her needs with a smile and not a single complaint . What an honor to know this Godly woman . Jack , you are truly in our thoughts and prayers at this time . With love , Dan and Gina

Dear Jack, Pam, Linda and Family,

So sorry to hear of Ann's passing. We go back to the 70's and Northeast. We had such good times on trips to the "Big Scoop" on Sunday nights after church, Mark enjoyed having Ann teach him in Sunday school, he still remembers the good lessons. Special memories we will always cherish. May God give you comfort as you get through the coming days. I will keep you in my prayers.

Aunt Anna was a very kind and gentle sole. Growing up I have so many fond memories of her. One of those was from c.1968, our Grandparents Grace and Carlton picked me up from my Dad’s home in Indiana and we went on a road trip to Oklahoma and we spent if I remember right a week at Jack and Anna’s. Love those memories
