When Anna and her husband Donald moved back to the Manteca/ Ripon area they were members of the LDS Church Northland Ward.  She was an active member of the VFW Woman’s Auxiliary Post 6311  Manteca. She was very proud of being a 55-year member of the Girl Scouts of America; in Alaska and the Manteca area where she was known as “Snow-Bird.” During her active time with the Girl Scouts she held many different offices including Neighborhood Chairman. Anna had a gift of gardening; she loved flowers and was known for her “green-thumb.” She enjoyed camping and fishing trips with her family. She loved dancing and the Christmas holiday season; decorating, cooking and family gatherings always brought great joy to her heart. She had a strong love for the Gospel; always reading and singing about the word of God.  Anna was an extremely devoted wife to her husband Don, who referred to her as “Baby Doll” for over 64 years. Her bond with her children was like no other; their love for each other was unconditional. She was an amazing Grandma to her grandchildren always doting over her legacy. Anna will be remembered as a woman who had a zest for life always having a positive attitude during any situation in life.  Her generosity and love toward others will never be forgotten.
