Anna Walsh

 Anna Jo Hager Walsh passed away February 22, 2013 in Houston, Texas. She was born December 16, 1947 in Tyler, Texas to Ralph and Iwana Hager.

Anna Jo was an avid reader and enjoyed all kinds of puzzles. She was also a very talented painter and artist. Her grandchildren were the love of her life and she always looked forward to spending time with her friends and family. Her fondest memories were traveling home to Tyler to celebrate Christmas with the entire family every year.

Later in life she found her true calling and dedicated her remaining years to working with the blind. She was passionate about her career at DARS and ministering to blind children. She loved volunteering with sleepovers at the zoo, Easter egg hunts, sharing her love of painting and countless other events. When she was not spending time with these precious children she could be found rocking babies in the nursery at Fellowship Church.

She is survived by her 3 daughters; Stephanie Bourn and husband Kyle, Susan Quezada and husband Steve and Samantha Walsh. She is also survived by her brother George Hager and wife Cecilia and sister Patsy Trice and husband Mike. She leaves behind 4 grandchildren; Blaine Bourn, Jake Quezada, Graham Bourn and John Quezada.

~untitled prose~

In memory of my mother
You were a precious gift from God above,
so much beauty, grace and love.
You touched our hearts in so many ways,
your smile so bright even on the bad days.
You heard God's whisper calling you home,
you didn't want to go and leave us alone.
You loved us so much, you held on tight,
till all the strength was gone and you could no longer fight.
He had called your name twice before,
you knew you couldn't make him wait anymore.
So you gave your hand to God and slowly drifted away,
knowing that with our love we will be together again some day.
