Anna passed away in September of 1998, one week after my first husband died. I spoke to her a week before. She had cancer and was obviously on a lot of medication.

She lived in beautiful Taos, New Mexico and was a nurse and a songwriter/singer. I have a CD she recorded and it is both haunting and spiritual. You only have to listen to it to realize that Anna "got it", life that is. She was at peace with herself, her family and God and was ushered out of this life to a more beautiful one beyond.

I was in the class of 1966; my late brother, Alan, was in the class of 1968. I discovered this website yesterday and learned of her passing, more than a decade late. I remember Anna well - a sweet, gentle, radiant person. I was very fond of her. I imagine that she is very much missed by her family and friends.

Anna had the voice of an angel.

Thanks for what you wrote, Nina. I was always so grateful for Anna's contribution to "Oklahoma." I'm glad music remained a big part of her life.
