There are so many good memories with Nana. I was lucky enough to have been able to spend a lot of time with her while growing up. She spent so many years camping with us in the tent until she got her own trailer. She rigged up a sink and running water to a tree outside the tent so we didn't have to go in the trailer all the time. There was a woman that could do anything she set her mind to (except ride a bike and swim) and she never stopped letting us try to teach her. You have been an inspiration in my life. I love you and miss you.

Annamay passed away peacefully with the love of her family surrounding her. She will be sadly missed and her life will be celebrated by all her knew her. She was the strength and the rock of our family and the women in our family are who they are because of her strength and her spirit!
