Nothing was more important and dear to her heart than family. One of seven children, the importance of family and family values were instilled upon Anna Lee at an early age. Her devotion to her children and grandchildren was very clear. Her home was always filled with love for family. She was a happy babysitter, gameplayer and baker. Those will be special memories her children and grandchildren will never forget.
The family would like to thank the staff of Meadowbrook and Harbor Light for the loving care they gave our mother.
