Ms Annie and I met back in 2007 when she was still in her home and attending Grace Baptist Church in Scott. She was always flashing a beautiful smile was so loving to everyone she met.
When my mother moved into the same nursing home, Ms Annie was there to greet her.
Ms Annie will be missed by so many of us, but I know she is celebrating now,

Anna was the sweetest, most easy going woman I’ve ever met. She was my mom’s roommate at the nursing home until my mom passed away. I enjoyed visiting with Anna, taking her flowers and creamer for her coffee. My thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

Anna was my bestfriend, my heart and so much more. I loved everything about my Anna. She was like a grandmother to me. Every morning I would go to see her to have our morning talks and before I left I had to give her kisses on her forehead and both cheeks every morning... and again throughout the day and boy did I love giving them to her. She would call me her Evil Ana and I would call her My Evil Anna, but she was my sweet angel. That was just our thing. Seeing her every day made my day a lot easier.. She changed my life since the first day I met her at Sherwood Nursing and Rehab. Now i must learn to live without her. She may not be here in person but she's in my heart. I love you My Anna. I will never forget you. Fly high sweetheart.

Anna was a most loved resident of Sherwood Nursing & Rehab. I had the pleasure of not only serving her, helping see to her needs, going shopping for her, visiting with her but more than that as being her friend. She will be greatly missed.❤
