It is great sadness that the family of Eleanor Hand mourn the loss of her dear friend Anne. The two were long life friends, who spent many hours working for the United Methodist Church. Anne will long be remembered by the Hand family. We
know that the entire community will miss her as well.

Anna was a very, very special lady. She was one of the kindest most generous women we have ever known. She was like a grandmother to our grandchildren as well as her own. Since she has been sick we have missed seeing her on the holidays and at the family birthday parties. She still sent us birthday cards, anniversary cards, etc. and was always concerned about everyone even though she was not in her home environment. We have many fond memories. Prayers and comfort go out to her family.
