Anna was born in Glenelg Township in 1930. She attended Markdale high school, then trained as a nurse in Guelph where she met her future husband, Jim McKinnon when he was visiting his sister, Betty who was also a nurse. Together they raised 6 children on a dairy farm on the 4th concession of Culross. When the children left home Anna resumed her nursing career until she retired. On the farm the door was always open to family, neighbours, and friends. Anna loved her 11 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren and remembered to send birthday cards to each of them, every year. Anna faithfully attended Sacred Heart Church in Teeswater and was a life-long member of the CWL. She spent her last years at Oatman Senior Apartments where she enjoyed bingos and tea parties in the common room as well as visits from family and friends.
