Prior to retirement at the age of 87, she was a Seamstress at The Katz Underwear Company in Honesdale, along with several other garment factories where she made military uniforms for World War II and tuxedos.

She enjoyed traveling with her brother, Stanley, and sister, Sophie, where they visited Hawaii, Alaska and toured the National Parks of the Northwest.
Anna was a very independent woman who took care of everything herself from washing her windows at the change of every season to cleaning her own chimney to chopping and stacking her own firewood and primarily heating her home with the wood. She was even featured on Channel 16’s On the Pennsylvania Road as she was spotted shoveling her own roof off at the age of 88!
