Anna was born in the Vibank area. She married Adam Ziegler and they raised their 7 children on the farm at Francis. Anna lived her life in service to others--her children--her husband and eventually her community. Everyone was drawn to her fun-loving, generous and optimistic nature --and the aromas coming from her kitchen. Mom loved new adventures, playing cards, travel, cooking for others, fishing, her flowers and garden. But, family always came first. Her passing has left a hole in our hearts.
