Memories Timeline


  1. Anna was my mother-in-law and a whole lot more. At 17,when i was kicked out of my home, Anna told Kevin to bring me to their house and she would smooth it over with Ron later. She helped prepare me for being a wife. Shed get me up early,have me run errands,pay the bills,make lunches,you know-wife stuff. She was hand in hand with me when trying to plan a wedding when i knew nothing to do. And even after the divorce,she still called me her daughter. So when MY daughter came along,of course,she was grandma. I never in my dreams thought she would want anything to do with her sons ex wife and her child but Anna only knew love,and i loved her for that. She filled many shoes in my life,and they all fit her perfectly. I regret losing touch with her and Ron over the years since they were my saviors as a teen but last winter i took a ride from Ron and we caught up on many things. I had no idea Annas recent troubles! I didnt want this day to ever come but,unfortunately,they must. You have had so many struggles in life Anna,i take peace in knowning that you no longer need to fight. You can finally relax now mom!! With all of my love…..Carol.

  2. May God bless your family at this difficult time. Your Mother was always kind and loving to others. She had a wonderful smile! Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

  3. We Loved her so much!! Chuck is having a hard time with her death!! We will be spending time with Ron soon!

  4. What an awesome lady. She always made time to visit and genuinely seemed to care about what was going on in your life. I’ll never forget her smile and her laugh. Thoughts and prayers to uncle Ron, Ron Jr. Kevin, and Georgena.

  5. What can I say at a time like this! We may not have been together much because of family commitments, but the memories sure swirled around when we were together. I’ll never forget the tandum bike ride where we got stopped for speeding. I know you remembered that. I remember staying with you before you married Ron, and the adventures and secrets we had. May you rest in peace, and hold your loved ones up there in your arms once again. Watch over us that are left behind. Love you to the moon and back.

  6. No heart breaks alone for God is always near. When a prayer is whispered God is always there to hear. When sorrow’s overwhelming, He comforts tenderly. A single tear never falls that he does not hear.(Psalms 65:2) Sorry for your loss.
