  • Aunt Anna was an amazing person. She loved with all her heart, always had a smile on her face and never met a stranger. If you needed something and it was within her power to give it – she did. She touched so many lives and I’m so thankful that she was a part of mine. This beautiful , sweet Aunt whom I have such fond memories of will forever live on in my heart. Pat and I will miss her deeply

    Anna brought such joy to our lives. We will miss her and know she lives now in heaven with all her beloved pets and loved ones.

  • I will forever hold this woman in my heart. With her feisty attitude and vibrant personality she was a lifelong advocate for all things living and breathing. I don’t think I ever heard her complain unless someone mentioned going hunting. Her kind heart and infectious laughter was part of her very soul. She was a dedicated “giver” and loved helping anyone in need. I’m sure she is creating a ruckus in heaven and singing at the top of her lungs. I’m so blessed to have had her as my Aunt.

  • I will forever hold her in my heart and remember her fiesty attitude and love of all of God’s creatures. Our family has gained another angel to watch over us. I will miss her laughter and vibrant personality. I just know she’s creating a ruckus in heaven. Until we meet again sweet Aunt.

    I’ll love you forever, my sweet beautiful Aunt! Rest Easy in Paradise! ♥
