Obituary of Anna G. Escamilla
On Thursday, December 8th, Anna Gertrude Escamilla 81, beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, passed away in her home, surrounded by her family, after a long, valiant fight with cancer. Born in Koblenz, Germany in 1941, to parents Johann and Rosa Hohl, youngest of 4 siblings, she grew up in Koblenz, and at 18 she met and married an Army soldier, Amador Escamilla. She came to America and received her citizenship, something she was very proud of. She worked for the school district in New Mexico, and several jobs throughout her years. Married for 47 years, she moved numerous times in 20 years, finally ending in Killeen, Texas. She raised 3 daughters, Irma, Diana and Rebecca. She was all about traditions, and how to have fun, and a lot of tough love and wisdom to share. She was an unfailing source of strength for her entire family, up to her very last moments. She never turned anyone away in need. A true friend to all, and taught us all the importance of family and love. She is dancing in heaven, pain and worry free. She is preceded in death by: Her parents, her brothers Erich, Hans, and Gustav Hohl. Her brother in law Werner Stoyer. Her husband, Amador Escamilla. Her daughter, Margaritha Irma Garza, and son in law Abel Garza.

And her great grandchildren, Jaxson and JJ Malone, Marley Garza,Kinzlee Garza and Kash Garza, Leila, Bella, and Hope Garza, and Joshua Pete (Petey) Garza. It was her desire that her service not be a somber occasion, but a celebration of her life, and no black to be worn. Visitation will be held at Crawford Bowers Funeral Home in Killeen, Texas from 8:30 to 9:30 am Followed immediately by a Celebration of Life in the same location. The Committal Service will be held at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, beginning at 11:00 am.
