My favorite ‘little lady’! I’ve missed our weekly chair massages! Sometimes she was the only one that came so we’d spend some time on a puzzle and she’d share stories with me. Love you Anna!

Grammy was the coolest lady! Everyone loved playing games with her late into the night. She always had the best snacks and grandest stories.

So many fond memories of Anna. She and my mom, Janet Bristol, were friends for a very long time. They had many great times together. I particularly like when they went to NYC, with Jen McNeil to volunteer, when they were all in their 80's. Anna was the only one that could climb the ladder to the top bunk. She always had a smile and kind words for everyone. The world needs more people like Anna. She will be missed. Hope she is having all the Onion Soup, Cold Fish fries for breakfast and sweets , she wants. Our sympathy to her family and friends. Laurie and Kevin.

They were like sisters and complimented each other perfectly. It was always a joy to see them together and yes, they sure had some good stories. Add Ruth Cheesman to that crew and it was a hoot. Will always remember their joy.
