Anna had several other talents such as tending a beautiful rose garden, interior decorating, and cooking delicious Italian-style meals during holidays. She was one smart lady who enjoyed wise sayings, such as, "When things go wrong...don't go with them" and "Success stops when you do". She also loved traveling with her family. While still in high school, Anna met the love of her life, husband, Edward Richard Fleetwood.He is a Korean War air force veteran and retired accountant/financial planner. They married in 1958 and were together for 57 years. Ed and Anna have three beautiful children: Jeffrey, Scott, and Lori.
