Anna was born February 27, 1924 in Calma, Yugoslavia into a privileged life which was devastated by WWII. She had to flee her home and resettled in Austria, Where she met her husband Hermann.
In 1952 with her babe in arms, she immigrated to the USA to start a new life. her husband joined her a year later. She was a modern woman long before a working woman was common. She worked at Horseman Doll Factory, General Electric, then at St. Francis Hospital for many years becoming a supervisor before she retired in 1986.
Her husband died much too soon, leaving her with two children to raise on her own. She dedicated her life to her children and then to her grandchildren. She was a wonderful role model to her children and grandchildren.
She was a determined, kind and gentle woman whose many trials in her life never affected her positive attitude toward everyone she encountered.
She did not deserve the affects her illness had on her the last years of her life. She shared her family's joys, believed in them, and supported then in all they did.
We were so very blessed to have had our Mama and Omi in our lives.
She was an unfailingly gracious woman who was an inspiration to her family and will be missed but never forgotten.
