Sorry to hear of Anna Mae's passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Anna Mae was my boss when she worked at Currier and Stanley Dorms. She was a wonderful lady. One year she made me a Angel out of a old book for Christmas. I have put it out every year sense she gave it to me. Karen Butterbaugh

Our thoughts and prayers go out to ALL of the Geyer and Related families! We all will miss Aunt Anna May, as we do Uncle Richard! John 11:25-26 25: Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26: and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?
