Our Mom and Granny was always very active in her younger years and Granny remained that way until her recent health condition began to slow her down. She raised her family and worked at Nichol’s Pharmacy for 20 years. Anna was a devoted member of the VFW Women’s Auxiliary and attended every fund raiser, barbecue, and dance. She and Gilbert were members of an RV travel club and enjoyed many trips in their motor home. One of their favorite spots was Yellowstone National Park, where they worked several years during the tourist season.
Her greatest joy was being with her friends and family. She was loved by so many for her witty sense of humor and quick comebacks. She loved George Jones, country music, and especially dancing. Mom, we know that you are dancing in Heaven.
The family would like to say a special thank you to her nurses Lydia and Patsy. Hugs to Aunt Betty and her friend Wilma for all their love and support.
