Anna dedicated herself to her family as well as working tirelessly for several years for the London Polish Hall as a caterer. Anna made her home for the last 3 years at McGarrell Place, London where she devoted her time to nurturing other residents and leading the occasional cooking class for perogies and cabbage rolls. The family wishes to especially thank the staff and volunteers of Harris House at McGarrell Place and in particular Dr. Karen Lo for all their kindness and dedication to Anna.
