    Anna had a long and useful life. When my mother Julia Ewert was in the Hospital in 1965, Anna was one of her nurses. I loved the picture of her in her write up. It shows what a loving lady she was. The Bourner family extends their sympathy to her daughter and grandchildren. I know that Kitty was a great source of comfort to her in her final years. Jean Bourner and family.
