Anna C. de Bruin

She enjoyed spending time with her family and gardening. If the weather was nice, you could always find her outside. Birthdays were always special to her, and she always joked about turning her age around if it was to her benefit.

Tabor, Vt.; her daughter, Catharina "Karin" Hegedus and her husband, Joseph, of Manchester, Vt.; grandsons, Paul Hegedus and his wife, Rebecca, and son, Stirling, of Pawlet, Vt., and Stephen Hegedus and Meredith Harding of San Francisco, Calif.; granddaughters, Larissa de Bruin of Manchester, and Carina de Bruin of Mt.
