While attending school at Madison, she was an active member of the AFJROTC (Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps), where she led her Junior Military Drill Team in National Championships and quickly obtained the rank of Cadet Lieutenant Colonel. She graduated from Madison High School in 1999.
Anna met her first husband, Destry Wolbert, and they were later married on July 15, 2000. During their marriage they gave birth to their first child, Tony Wolbert. They were later divorced.
Anna married her second husband, Jason Gundert on Aug. 31, 2005.They have spent many happy years together helping raise Tony, as well as giving birth to and raising their children Lisette, Ramona and Clayton.
Anna attended Eastern Idaho Technical College, where she obtained her certification as a Licensed Practical Nurse in 2005. She also attended Idaho State University and graduated on Aug. 3, 2012, with an Associate of Science in Nursing. She spent her life caring for the sick and afflicted and always made sure her family members were taken care of.
Her passions included being a wonderful mother (even to her siblings), a loving wife, a hostess for family gatherings, a professional and family nurse, going camping, putting on firework shows for the Fourth of July and spending time with all her family. The memories of Anna making others smile, doting over her nieces and nephews, baking warm treats and being a good friend will never be forgotten. She wasn't perfect but she was perfect, for us.
Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015, in the Summerfield Ward building located at 210 S. 12th W. Rexburg, Idaho 83440. The family will receive friends from 9:30-10:45 a.m. Wednesday at the church prior to services. Interment will be in the Rexburg Cemetery.
