It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Mom. Anna was a prolific volunteer in the community. She was always at the polling places for years worth of elections, school events and worked for several local companies, all while raising 7 children and several troubled teen friends of her children.
She cherished the simple things in life; a warm hug, kind kisses from her loving family, and kind words.
Anna was married to Kenneth Barnes on Oct 22, 1955 in Carson City, Nevada. They raised 7 children together, Doyle Thornton, Fred Thornton, Regina Arthur, Dan Barnes, Bob Barnes, Brian Barnes, and Tisha Brown. She leaves behind her children as well as numerous Grandchildren and even several Great Grandchildren. Anna was preceded in death by her loving husband Kenneth, a Grandson Daniel Barnes, and a Great Grandson Jesse Barnes.
Due to Covid restrictions, limited Rememberance services will be held at Higgins Funeral home on Monday May 10 from 10:30-11:30 am. Limited graveside services will be held following from 12-1 pm at Brentwood Union cemetery.
