Annie enjoyed bowling, golf, wood working, playing cards, Yahtzee, Scrabble, watching wildlife, snuggling her little dog, and being around family.
She was an excellent cook who always made sure to invite and include friends who didn’t have family around during the holidays, and you never knew who might show up to dinner.

She leaves behind three siblings Pat (Eugene) Hasse of Rose City, Jerry (Karen) Page of Jackson, and Carol (Leroy) Short of Hale, and special friends Rosie and Vicki Kisser of Lupton.

Per Anna May’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A small family gathering and celebration of life will be held at a later date.
