    When Anna transferred to Ira J. Jacobson American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 474, she immediately became not only a valuable member, but a dear friend as well. She loved offering Poppies each May, and I dare say, it was her favorite committee! She became active in the Monroe County American Legion Auxiliary as well, taking on the committee of National Security. Anna never passed up a chance to participate in any function going on, as long as she was able.

    She will be missed by us more than we can say.
