Anna was a graduate of Binghamton North High School and retired from IBM Owego. Anna loved to shop and ALWAYS found a great bargain. Her favorite expression “Guess how much I paid for it?” will always be remembered. She enjoyed going to Tioga Downs with Betsy and Angela, she also loved to cook her favorites; pancake breakfasts, lentil soup, pasta fazool, and pizza frite which will never be forgotten.
Her true loves were her Catholic faith and her family. She taught by example as she lived her faith each and every day and no sacrifice was ever too great for family. Our thanks to the wonderful caregivers without whom she could not have remained in her home over the past few months, Jody, Pat, Keri, Rosalynn, Martha, Tiffany, Vanessa, Violet and Willie. Though we will miss her more than words can express, the family finds comfort that she is with Jesus and reunited once again with all of her family who she missed so very much.
