Anna served alongside her husband who was a minister for 55 years.

Anna was a member of WMU and the retired teachers association. She was a Sunday school teacher and assistant camp director for Mt. Zion Summer Camp.

Anna enjoyed traveling and playing piano; her greatest joy was getting together with her family throughout the year. She and her husband were very devoted to missionary work; they would travel across the United States, establishing and repairing churches. In the mid-1950s they travelled to Rolla, MO to grow a small mission that later became the thriving Salem Avenue Baptist Church. Roy and Anna also did missionary work in Russia, helping to build and establish a church in Belarus, Russia. She was a loving mother and grandmother.

Memorial Contributions to the First Baptist Church would be appreciated.
