Anna Lou Carper, 88, passed away peacefully on Dec. 13, 2016, at home with her loving family by her side.

Anna enjoyed riding her Arabian horses, cooking, singing, swimming and playing the piano. She was also an accomplished artist. She had a “one of a kind” sense of humor and always loved a good laugh (especially when reading the comics).

Anna leaves behind, to cherish her memory, son, Bernie G. Carper; daughters, Margie (Ronnie) Good, Bonnie (Sheldon) Juneau; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

“Her beautiful smile and caring ways will forever be remembered.”
