From a narrative written by Alvira Lochhaas Jackson:
"Aunt Annie worked as a sales girl in a dry goods store in Collinsville. She worked there for many years. 50 years comes to mind. She was a thin wiry woman always on the go. She Both worked and kept house after Aunt Lou died and the house was always spotless. She had so many interesting knick knacks and her scarves were always starched and ironed perfectly. she must also have been a wonderful cook as my feelings are that I enjoyed eating at her table. She cooked in the summer kitchen in the summer time and we ate in the dining room or kitchen in the house. I know it was explained that the summer kitchen kept the heat from cooking out of the house because in those days people cocked on a coal kitchen stove, or sometimes a coal oil stove. Either one would heat up the kitchen. Aunt Annie lived to be 99 years old and was in sound mind till the last. She lived in the Lutheran Alteheim for quite a few years. Mother and I visited her a lot, especially when Bertha was in the same home. Aunt Annie would be so proud that she did not have scoliosis or any arthritis that caused crippling. She would stand and pat herself on the back and say 'how many 9-plus year old woman can do this?21'" She never married.1
