1931 – 2013

Anna Rose Bolden passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at her home in Valencia, CA. Anna was born October 27, 1931 in Ft. Worth, TX. She was the only daughter of Norman B. and Anna B.

The next day, Ed was made aware and went to the store manager to inform him that Anna did not work there anymore. Anna has been a bank teller, a court clerk, a DMV person, and has had several other titles to subsidize the $285 per month, over 'macho' Ed's objections.

Anna's first prince Norman Edward Bolden and Alycia are the parents of three grandchildren: Magyn, Matthew, and Krystal. Magyn and Jesse Gooch have produced two great-grandchildren, Sage and Isla. Anna's second prince Michael Dwane Bolden is unmarried. Michael is busy promoting a program to help youngsters gain self-esteem and focus on respect for others, called
