She was the seventh of nine children. Anna grew up on a farm and recalls all of the goats, chickens, hogs and large garden. Upon harvesting, her mother would can everything that came from the garden. In 1948, Anna graduated from Graham High School. After high school, she attended Lockyear Business College in Evansville, Ind., and graduated as a medical secretary. After graduation, she was first employed by a seed company where she served as a secretary to five gentlemen. After she attended a dance that her friend had invited her to, Anna met Afton Hall. The couple were married in 1951. Afton worked as a manager for the Chrysler Corporation and Anna was the owner and operator of Ann’s Café. After living in Indiana for 11 years, Anna and Afton moved to Pacific, Mo., where they would remain for twenty years before eventually moving to St. Louis. Anna and Afton were blessed with two wonderful sons: Bob and David. Bob and his wife, Cindy, currently live in Heber Springs, Arkansas. David and his wife, Sharon, reside in Bolivar. Anna has also been blessed with five grandchildren, nine step-grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. When Chrysler went on strike, Anna went back into the workforce. What she thought was temporary, became more than 30 years of job force experience. While working, Anna was employed by a loan company, physicians’ office, and St. John’s /Mercy Hospital in Washington, Mo., where she worked as an HR recruiter. After 17 years of service, Anna was able to retire from St. John’s. Sadly, in 1987, Afton passed away. Anna continued to live in their home until 1994 when she decided to relocate to Bolivar. Her son, David, had moved to the area and she fell in love with it. Anna finds joy in all of her hobbies, especially quilting, taking art classes, teaching vacation bible school and being a den mother. Anna was also a professional clown and visited the Children’s Home in Bridgeton, Mo. Traveling has always been one of Anna’s favorite pastimes. She has had the opportunity to travel to Europe and has enjoyed numerous Alaskan and Caribbean cruises. She has extra fond memories of celebrating Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, and taking a safari in Hades. While there, she enjoyed a mountain tour on horseback. In 2014, Anna made Butterfield Residential Care Center her home. She enjoys participating in the weekly art class, music and parties. Thank you for sharing your story with us Anna!
