Anna was born in St. Louis in 1929. She worked as a secretary for many years after high school and loved to travel with her sisters and girlfriends. She met her husband Ken and was married in 1959. They lived in Florissant MO, where they had their 3 daughters. In 1972, the family moved to Ste. Genevieve MO where Ken was born and raised. There, Anna took classes to prepare income taxes and assisted Ken in their Tax and Bookkeeping business. She also worked as a bookkeeper for a local store. In their later retirement years, they moved to Columbia IL to be closer to their daughters and families. In 2019, ten years after Ken passed away, Anna moved to the Cedarhurst senior living residence in Waterloo, IL where she loved the caring staff and the many activities they provided.
Anna was a devout Christian woman, a wonderful mother and grandmother who loved being involved in the lives of her children and their families.
