Obituary

Anna Jane Kirby departed this life May 27, 2019. She was 97. She was born in Prince Georges County. She grew up during the depression years. Growing up during the Depression formed a resilience which served her well during her lifetime. Her generation was one of true grit. During the war she worked at a research and development plant wiring radios for aircraft. She became so proficient that she became an instructor. Before her illness, she was an avid news watcher. She was always up on current events. A few times she wrote to the editor of the local newspaper. She had strong opinions and she wasn’t shy about voicing them. Living to a ripe old age, she witnessed many changes in the world and lots of history being made.
One of her favorite things was planting her vegetable garden. Her gardens were always beautiful and the envy of her fellow gardeners. She had a soft spot for animals. Dogs and cats were always on the scene. She especially loved Siamese cats.
AJ ,as we called her, was a beautiful lady and a loving mom and grandma. We will miss her love, quick wit and companionship
