Mom was a very kind, caring individual who loved her grandchildren, great- grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren without condition. They loved her just as dearly during her last days. Lisa (granddaughter), Darren (grandson) and Lindsey (great-granddaughter) kept vigil over their beloved Grams night and day.

Anna May and Fritz will have celebrated 75 years of marriage on April 12, 2016.
