Our beautiful Mother and Wife went peacefully into the arms of Jesus and her Angels on December, 3, 2011. Mom was born in Akron, Ohio on September 27, 1921 to Phillip and Mary Yost. She had a short career working at Baker McMillan before marrying her "Honeybunch" in 1948 and raising three sons. After Dad's retirement from Ohio Bell in 1982, they left the Portage Lakes area and moved to Port Richey, Florida, where they enjoyed a wonderful 22 years. Mom will forever live on in the hearts of many with her easy-going, warm and giving Christian spirit.|
She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Phil Yost, sister, Elizabeth Sarich, and also her beloved son "Mark" in 2005.
Anne is survived by the love of her life, her husband Donald; sons, Kerry (Rose) of Barberton and Jeff (Jackie) of Akron, Ohio; sister, Mary Smith; niece, May; daughter-in-law, Melissa Curtiss-Keller; loving nieces, Shelly Urey, Lisa Curran and their families; grandchildren and great-grand-children, and many friends from Ohio to Florida.
Special Thanks to Beth and Kim, and Marcia in Florida, for their care over the last few years. We love you Mother, and will miss you every day.
