She was proud of her siblings and was often looked at as a Motherly figure who could be looked to, to make decisions on behalf of the family. In 1981, Anna met her best friend Michael Silva, who would then become the love of her life. They married on May 26, 1984.

There wasn't anything she wouldn't do for them. She was always so proud of them and their accomplishments. Her favorite was showering them with gifts, especially on their birthdays and Christmas. She loved attending their sporting and school events and was always their loudest fan.

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day- and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing." 2 Timothy 4:7-8
