Remembering Anna Jane....

Anna Jane was a very dear friend.  We met in junior high school. During our years at Frederick High School we shared many classes in addition to sharing many of the same friends. 


Our first contact was as Junior Aides for Frederick Memorial Hospital's big dance - The Snow Ball - in 1951.  The gala was held at the Hood College gymnasium.  Mrs. Byron White hosted a reception for the Junior Aides at her lovely home on Rockwell Terrace (actually across the street from Anna Jane’s home).


After graduation, we lost touch except for Class Reunions

every five years.  It was always obvious A.J. enjoyed

returning to gather with classmates with whom she shared a wonderful youth!   I was particularly touched that this 

marvelous woman made an effort to attend our Class of

1956 80th Birthday Party after recovering from surgery!!!

I will never forget the smile on her face that evening nor the strength and determination this beautiful woman always showed in the face of adversity!


I truly miss Anna Jane!
