Annie was such a "special" cousin. She would take Mom out to shop, eat lunch or just take a drive around the country side. My Mom always loved that. We always enjoyed her front porch and kitchen table visits. Ray and I enjoyed her coming to our house for picnics in the "Florida" room. We will miss you dear Annie, but I am sure Mom and Dad were happy to see you, and I am sure you and Mom are going on "heavenly" rides!
Love and hugs to her family

Marie, Jim, John, and all who were blessed to have Anna in their life, you have my deepest condolences. Anna was one of my dearest friends; we had many lunches together over the last 20 or so years. I will miss her terribly; she was such a good lady. I consider myself one of the fortunate ones to have known her.
RIP, my sweet friend.

Dear Marie, John, Jim and all great nieces and nephews.....
Your Aunt Anna was a real sweetheart....and I had the good pleasure of getting to know her at (or should I say, "ON") Norm and Beulah Eschbach's front porch in Payne! She was almost as much a part of that porch as Norm and Beulah and their children were! Always offering a pleasant 'hello' and never complaining about anything (that I ever heard of). She will be missed, but fondly remembered.

May God comfort all of you at this difficult time. With my sympathy, Jim Hooker, Mesa, AZ. formerly of Payne
