434: Anna D Allen
World War II Veteran and Teacher
Born: 12 September 1913, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, United States of America
Died: 1 July 2000, Daytona Beach, Florida, United States of America
Anna served as a WAVES during World War II (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Services) and worked as a schoolteacher in Pennsylvania and New York before retiring to Florida.
She married twice but never had any children. Anna was my great aunt, my paternal grandfather’s oldest surviving sister. Though I never met her, her story continues to inspire me every day.
