My most sincere condolences to Anna's family at this time. I worked with Anna and we car pooled together during our time at IBM. She was kind, funny and a good listener. She and Alma came to my daughter's birthday party. May she rest in peace.

To the Family of Anna Mae Johnson, You all have my deepest sympathy at this difficult time.
I did not have the pleasure of meeting Mrs Johnson, but I knew and met her sister Emma Soares after finding out that her daughter Wanda and I are cousins through genealogy research we both love doing. Both our families came from Sharon CT back in the 19th century so that makes us all family. My love and prayers go out to you today as you lay Anna Mae to her eternal rest.
