Anna was a strong Christian woman and was a member of multiple churches in her life. No matter what church she was attending, she retained her faith and would share it with those around her on occasion. She loved to make people laugh and was always quick witted. Everyone loved to banter with her. Anna loved antiques and had her own antique store in Harvard which brought customers from all over the state and Midwest. Even after she sold her antique business, she continued to collect antiques and even sold them on occasion. She loved going to garage sales with John when he was still alive and with her kids. The trips in the motorhome with Walt were an important period in her life, as they met a lot of new friends who were also “winter Texans.”
