    Miss Anna helped raise my two girls! She was adored at Trinity by all the children and their parents and became a part of our families! She was family!
    I could not have experienced Christ or grown in my faith without Anna caring for my girls in the nursery while I attended Bible study!
    Anna was a disciple in every sense of the word by her love of my girls growing up in the church and her gentle example of who God was and how He loved us unconditionally. Anna was a role model for so many young parents and I treasure her smile, her laughter, her acceptance, and her care!
    She played an important role in our lives and she is unforgettable.
    Anna became a friend to me and a grandmother to my girls.

    We were so sorry to hear of Anna’s passing. Our friendship goes way back to our happy, crazy graduate days at Cornell University where Anna and Sal opened their home to share her marvelous Italian cooking with some hungry grad students. We shall keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Mark and Gail—- How sorry and saddened I was to hear about Anna’s death. What a special lady she was. I always considered her the “Baby and Child Whisperer” as she could always soothe them with her calm voice and message–(-hey- she could soothe me the same way !) I enjoyed every minute that I ever spend with her and wish I had seen more of her —- my loss! I always felt blessed and lifted up when with and when leaving her for the day–as I felt Gods presence with us—She just made everything seem peaceful and right !–I will always cherish her memory. I would be there to talk to you, Mark and Gail–but I’m under the weather with a cold and you don’t need germs ! It was another blessing that I met you, Mark through your mom -and always enjoyed our “chats” —My sincere sympathy and love to both you and Gail and those adorable Grand daughters-Dot
