    John and I have known Anna for the past 15 years since we retired to the Valley. We were blessed to get to know her. She was a fine example of a lovely Christian woman. She was constantly giving of herself, time and talents, to others. Our community will certainly miss her sparkling personality as well as all her good deeds. She ardently supported the building fund of Community Mission Church. She worked very hard on church fund-raising efforts for the Building Fund, and strongly believed that was God’s Will. John and I miss her deeply and are devastated by her sudden passing. Every time that Anna and I ended a phone conversation, we always told each other, “I love you.” I thank God that we shared that affection.
