Anna was a skilled seamstress who worked for various local companies including Marshall Rays, CB Sports, Korells and most recently Racemark in Malta.
Anna enjoyed watching the Hallmark movies on TV, and lately enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles and other word search games. She also enjoyed her occasional scratch off ticket, which always seemed to have a lucky outcome.
Anna played an important part in raising her grandchildren to be the strong, well mannered and respectful adults that they have become. Anna's three great grandchildren were the light of her life. She enjoyed her visits with them, daily phone calls, and embraced the advantages of technology by using FaceTime during her 2 year stay at Wesley to see them more frequently.
Anna's family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks to the staff at Wesley's Springs building, floor 3, for the care, compassion and kindness they showed to her during her stay.
In addition to her parents and husband Wesley, Anna was predeceased by her daughter in law Marilyn "Lynn" Thompson as well as her siblings Rose Crawford, Gertrude Rodeno, Carl and John Mangona, Theresa Rose, Frank and Santo Mangona and Virginia Vernoy.
