Born in Boston on September 1, 1935, Anna was the daughter of the late William and Sarah (Quinn) Ross. She grew up in Charlestown and was a graduate of Charlestown High School. Anna made her career as a telephone operator with the New England Telephone Company. She was known for her fantastic cooking as she loved to entertain and open her home to family and friends alike to gather, eat and enjoy each other’s company.
Anna particularly loved evenings spent in her sunroom with any number of family or friends. Her home had a revolving door, it was never uncommon for a family friend to drop in unannounced. No matter who you were or how long it had been since your last visit, you were greeted with a genuine smile and a hot meal seemingly prepared just for you. She will be missed for her welcoming and inclusive heart and her quick wit, which kept us all smiling. Anna was happiest when surrounded by her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren, who loved her beyond measure.
