Note: N124 Anna was the eldest of the Kisserow children. She was in her mid-40's when she got married, according to my mother Virginia. She lived in the Chicago area where her husband Don worked, but they did not have children. Mom recalls visiting them in Chicago and that they were taken out to a classy restaurant and had a beautiful home. Anna and Don also visited my aunt Minerva back east many times, where Minerva says they enjoyed the fresh turkeys and chickens the Crossley's raised when they lived in Vermont.
Anna died during an operation that was recommended for cancer. Don was very upset and felt Anna should not have had the operation.
My Aunt Minerva DeValska Crossley had a story about Ana and Don in response to my 1990’s family questionnaires (as follows):
“Aunt Anna and Don Kirk - we visted them also in Chicago many times, enjoyed seeing them. They visited us in Vermont. Aunt Anna loved to eat the fresh vegetables out of the garden, and our turkeys and chickens which we raised. Brought me Mother and Dad’s wedding picture. She passed away the same year of cancer (operation). Uncle Don felt after he should not have let her have it (the operation). Felt so sorry for him. Glad they got to visit us.”
Donald and Anna's marriage was performed by Reverend Jesse L. Fonda, 424 Lake Street, Oak Park,, Illinois. Donald was 36 years old and Anna was 37. ________________
