at Decatur Memorial Hospital.
She was born May 27, 1932, in DeWitt County, to Edward and Ida (Hall) Dial

Anna was a cherished mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. She enjoyed
working outside in her vegetable and floral gardens, and was also an
accomplished quilter and talented artist. She was an avid golfer in the

important role, though, was providing a constant level of support for her
beloved husband, Raymond. His success as an attorney is measured by the
amount of love she had in supporting him. After battling cancer for
several years, Anna is now free from the pain and her soul is at peace.
