Anna was born August 29, 1929 in Baltimore, Maryland.  She enjoyed a long career with the Federal Way, Washington School District.  She moved to Kernersville to enjoy her retirement years.  Anna found the community a very welcoming place, especially the C & H Cafeteria, and her neighbors became more like family.  She never met a stranger and was always ready to help those that needed her.  She never complained during her many years dealing with cancer and the treatments that were required.  She enjoyed working with flowers, driving her little red “beetle” volkswagon and watching the birds that visited her during her morning coffee.  Anna was known for her beautiful smile and courageous spirit.

Memorial donations in her memory may be made to Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home, 101 Hospice Lane, Winston-Salem, NC  27103.
