Anna grew up in Gregory, Tx and was the third oldest of 10 children.

Her calling in life was to be a loving and devoted child of god, wife and mother. Her strong catholic faith created a home where the main focus was Jesus Christ. She led her entire life by the Lord’s example. This same example is what she strived to pass on to her children, grandchildren and anyone she met along the way. She was an active member of the Immaculate Conception Parish. Anna served as a catechist teacher, in the bereavement committee, and the Catholic Daughters. She loved serving the Lord and all those around her. She generously gave her time to anyone in need. Anna touched many people in her 72 years of life.
Her grandchildren were the light of her life and brought her the most happiness. She loved to cook-especially for her grandchildren. Her life revolved around them.
Mom, we love you always and will miss you greatly!
