Anna was the oldest resident as well as one of the biggest hearted women of the Walston community.  Her door was always open, and everyone was welcomed to her table anytime.

She loved her family unconditionally through thick and thin and led by example always showing love and kindness.  She went from raising her children to grandchildren to great grandchildren, loving and doting over them, and always willing to drive them wherever they needed to go.  They all brought her joy beyond measure.

Anna always made signing up at the Walston Club a daily activity, she enjoyed seeing people and had hopes of being a lucky winner.
