November 15, 1927 – July 24, 2019
Anna (Wirth) Kloster, 91, passed away peacefully Wednesday, July 24, 2019, surrounded by her children. Anna was born on November 15, 1927 to Joseph and Barbara (Wischler) Wirth in Chicago, IL. Her family moved to Kansas City, KS where she attended St. Agnes Elementary and Rosedale High School. On September 4, 1948 she married the love of her life, Herbert Kloster. She was employed by the Folgers Company where she was a switchboard operator. After the birth of her second child, she decided to stay home to be a full-time homemaker. Over the next 13 years, Anna would have seven more children. In addition to being an excellent cook, she excelled at being a loving and caring wife and mother. During retirement from raising her nine children, she enjoyed being a caregiver for her grandchildren and they loved their Granny Annie. She will be dearly missed by all.
Anna is preceded in death by her husband; daughter, Janet Dillman; her parents; her brother, Joseph Wirth and sister, Barbara Flynn.

Dear Kloster Family,
I just wanted to extend my deepest sympathy to all of you for the loss of your Mom. Aunt Ann was such a lovely lady—so kind and sweet and always smiling. I know she’ll be deeply missed.
I’m thinking of you all, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have such fond memories of Ann. She was always bustling around the kitchen on 17th Street, warmly welcoming whichever Burns children might have found their way into the Kloster home.
We had such a fun neighborhood! Much to big Herb's chagrin (which I totally understand now), countless young teenagers would congregate on 17th Street to "hang out." Fun times for us--doubtless not so fun for parents!
Sending my most heartfelt sympathy on the death of your mother and grandmother--and in gratitude for her life. With love and prayers,
Patrice (Burns) Ludwig

I just want to say how sorry I am for the loss of your mom. She had always been a Saint to me here on earth and now I believe she's an Angel looking over everyone. My love and heartfelt condolences to all of you...Love, Kim
