So sorry to hear about Anna. When my dad and I used to come to ND. to visit after we moved to Mn. we always stayed at their farm for one or two nights. I really enjoyed visiting with her. Loved her laugh and her hospitality. After my dad died in 1994 , I would stop in to see her every time we came up there to see Leonard and other family. She was a great lady and had a long life. It has been a while since I had seen her, but thought about her a lot. Have many good memories of her.

Wow- 110 yrs old-What a beautiful life Anna lived, Ted is our neighbor in Wi- and he was always bragging about his mother and her long good life, Over the last several years-We were lucky to meet Leona also, and develop a friendship. Leona did so much to add to her mother's life, as did all the family as they were able. The celebration Birthday Parties we heard about were a real fun time for all. Ted was determined to get there from Wisconsin- so he planned his trips in the recent times via Amtrak to North Dakota. His mother was so Happy to see him as was Everyone was so happy that Ted traveled back to be with his loved ones in North Dakota.
