After graduating from Clairton High School, Anna attended Duff’s Business School in Pittsburgh. Following graduation, she worked as a secretary in the West Jefferson Hills School District. She was later employed as a crossing guard for the West Jefferson Hills School District.
While attending Duff’s, she met the love of her life, Don, and they married on November 23, 1955. Together they had three beautiful children and enjoyed 66 years of marriage.
In her retirement years, Anna and Don moved into their summer home in the Pymatuning Lake area, where she spent 20 years hosting many social events for friends and family, most notably her infamous yard sales! In 2015, they relocated to Conneaut Lake, where she spent the final years of her life.
She was a woman of strong faith and was an active member of the Beulah Baptist Church, serving as pianist and choir director as well as being a member of the choir. She was also active in many church groups and was always willing to serve when needed.
Anna was an avid fan of all Pittsburgh sports teams, especially her beloved Steelers! She also enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, embroidery and her computer. She was a life member of the Conneaut Lake Park Fire Hall and a social member of the Linesville VFW Post 7842 having had many good times at both with her friends and family.
She was a loving mother and grandmother who was happiest when surrounded by her “kids.” She spent many hours in the swimming pool, at the miniature golf course, batting cage and in sports arenas and golf courses with her beloved grandsons, always cheering them on and doting on them in true “GRRR” fashion! She was proud of the many accomplishments and successes of her family.
In addition to her parents, Anna was preceded in death by her son, Robert, her brothers, Paul and Eugene Graham and sisters, Margaret Miller and Kathryn Ferguson.
