She was especially fond of the three grandsons who live in just across the border in Montana:  Josh (Kari) Harris of Laurel , Jerel (Teresa) Harris of Columbus, and Bill (Mandy) Brunckhorst,  also of Laurel.

Her parents, Vernon (Bud) and Marie Ritzdorf, preceded her in death.

Anna was especially fond of her dear friends, Anita and Cal Akin of Deaver. Anna was a very unusual character and her family and friends will miss her.
