She was born October 26, 1958, in Mt. Carmel, Illinois, the daughter of Walter James and Mary Maude (Hall) Miller. 


Anna enjoyed doing practical jokes, making people laugh, making Barbie clothes and dancing.  She was a dreamer…winning the lottery…  Anna loved spending time with family, especially her grandchildren that called her “Grandma Annie,” and friends.  She will be greatly missed.

Anna was preceded in death by her parents.
