Anna Mary Biser Fee, 94, died Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013. She was born on April 14, 1918, during a spring snowstorm in the Razorback Mountains of Mineral County West Virginia.
Her parents, George E. Biser and Madora Lee Welch Biser, lived in an eight-room log home built in 1831 by her great-grandfather. She grew up with her sister, Wilda Biser Miller, and brother, Talbot Biser, in a house filled with music and art; both siblings have preceded her in death.
When Anna was 2, her mother and baby brother, John, died from childbirth complications. The family moved to Berkeley Springs, W.Va., where Anna went to school and graduated as salutatorian of her class. She moved to Washington, D.C., and worked at the S.S. Kresge Store, where she met her future husband, John Francis Fee. After her husband served in World War II, they moved to his hometown of Pittston, where they raised their four daughters, Barbara, Maureen, Teresa and Kathleen.
After the death of John in 1994, Anna lived in Lititz, Pa., with her daughter Kathleen and spent her last few years being cared for at the Denver Nursing Home, Denver, Pa., sharing her artwork, smiles and sweet nature with everyone.
We sadly say goodbye to a sweet soul. She will be greatly missed by her sons-in-law, Shaun Sheehan, Augustus Mosca, Jason Goodman, Sloan Winters, and by her grandchildren, Alicia (Mosca) and Robbie Trescavage, Augustus Mosca, Brendan and Katherine Sheehan, Shaun P. Sheehan, Aaron and Jordan Winters.
Mass of Christian Burial will take place 11 a.m. Saturday at St. John the Evangelist Church, 35 William St., Pittston, with Monsignor John J. Bendik as celebrant. A viewing will be held 10:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the church. Interment will be at St. John the Evangelist Cemetery. Because of Anna's love of animals and nature, in lieu of flowers, please send donations to PAWS, P.O. Box 855, Camp Hill, PA 17001.
