Hollo in 1948. She was a homemaker and later worked at Heather Hill Nursing Home in the laundry department until she retired.
Anna was an avid football fan, who enjoyed cheering on the Berkshire Badgers and Cleveland Browns each fall. Anna volunteered several years working at the Log Cabin in Burton’s Circle. She was an amazing baker and known to deliver her cookies to family, friends, and workers all over town. Anna loved playing cards and would quickly rope you into a game of Cadillac or Rummy when visiting. She adored dogs and often loved on and cared for her family members’ dogs Gracie, Skip, and Carson.
Anna will be greatly missed by her daughters, Bonnie (Bobby) Larson, Lori Hollo, and son, John Hollo, Jr., along with her nine grandchildren: Chad (Ginnie) Petrik, Jason (Cindy) Petrik, Kyle (Dawn) Blair, Sonya (Mike) Morris, Derek (Brooke) Arnold, Charles (Kristin) Blair, Jr., Swedell (Charles) Simmons, Brianna Blair, and John (Doris) Hollo III. In addition, Anna took great pride and joy in her eighteen great-grandchildren: Ashley, Colby, Ava, Megan, Cohen, Nolan, Austin, Charles III, Owen, Logan, Liam, Jared, Charles Avery, Danny, Carson, Andrew, Evelyn, and John IV.
Anna is the last of her siblings, as she was preceded in death by her seven brothers: William, Emil, Martin, Gus, Wayne, Kit, and Neilo. She was also preceded in death by her husband, John, and a daughter, Teresa Dallas.
