I have many good memories of Elaine. As a cousin I saw her as I was growing up and enjoyed visiting when she lived in Philadelphia and playing with David and his trains. As time went I was able to see her at family reunions. I am pleased that I was able to visit her one more time in April of 2017. She was not always happy with her life but still could laugh and share memories. I know she is now at peace.

I had the good fortune of getting to travel with Anne and my Mom on some wonderful trips. Anne was always smiling and laughing. She was fun to be around and was always willing to try new adventures. One of those adventures was dog sledding. She and my Mom, Peggy, really enjoyed this, as you can see. (Anne is smiling behind all those scarfs!) We will all miss Anne.

I went on a cruise with Anne, Mom and my sister in 2010. Anne was very down-to-earth...nothing pretentious about this fine lady. And she always spoke her mind, good, bad or ugly, which gave us a good laugh every now and then. Anne (which is the name we knew her by) was a wonderful traveling partner for my Mom, Peggy Jansen, after her husband died. I loved the picture of Ann, Mom and my sister riding the dog sled on one of their adventures. They made a lot of memories. Ann will be missed!

Joanie and I got to know Ms Anna as volunteers at Wyndrige Nursing. David was her bingo partner. She was a very loving and caring person. Heaven is a sweeter place with Ms Anna there. Sorry for your lost.
