“Our Mother was truly the Matriarch of our family and
exemplified her deep faith throughout her life. A beautiful woman with a golden
heart, she kept her family close, and was never far apart. Anna Rose was not
only our mentor but an inspirational teacher to all dancers young and old. She
was a wonderful story teller and a life-long Packer and Brewer fan. Her joy in
life was contagious and she lived life to the fullest.”
