Anna Marie enjoyed hobbies and activities in her lifetime. Everybody knew her passion for horses, which took her from riding bare-back to school as a child, to riding on a silver saddle -- decked out for the local parades. It is safe to say Anna loved the outdoors. Not only could she shoot a gun as well as any man, she more than likely out-fished them all ... and has the stories and pictures to back her up! Anna also loved to garden and camp; these are activities she loved sharing with her family and friends.
