Anna was born in Detroit, Michigan to Leonard and Ina Yarbrough on January 22, 1947. She was the first of five children.

Anna traveled the world throughout her life. She was educated in several cities across the United States, graduating from Polytechnic High School in San Francisco, California, and continued on to college.

While living in San Francisco, Anna met a sailor, Robert "Bob" Milton Reynolds and married him in 1967. Bob predeceased her in 2001. They had two children — Opal Loraine Golden (Donn) and David Walter Reynolds (Kimberly Lewis).

As a Navy wife, she and Bob traveled all over the world. A few of the places include Italy, Cuba, Iceland, Israel during the 6-day war, Cyprus where Opal was born, Okinawa at the time Okinawa was given back to Japan and also where David was born.

After Bob retired from the Navy, they settled in The Colony, Texas, with their children. She spent much of her time there tending to her children and grandchildren.

Anna leaves behind her sisters — Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough, "-Cookie-" Inetta Pearl Hines (Art), and Flora Rae Ceragioli (Russ). She was predeceased by her youngest sister, Ollie Marie Page (Jimmie). Anna had six grandchildren — Heather Nicole Stanley, William Edward Stanley, Joshua Daniel Stanley, and Timothy Robert Stanley by Opal and Christopher Don Reynolds and Alexandria Reynolds by David. She had two great grandchildren — Robert Edward Stanley by Joshua and Ryker Leo Stanley by William, as well as several nieces and nephews — Sandy Elizabeth Hines, Ina Elizabeth Dunlap, Melissa Mario Thomasco, Shelby Ann Ceragioli, James Robert Ray Page, Jesse Cleveland Page, and Joshua Daniel Page. She had two brother-in-laws — James David "Davie" Reynolds and Waller William "Bill" Reynolds. Anna also leaves many loyal and caring friends, especially Gary Walker, a long-time family friend who has cared for her through thick and thin.

Anna loved photography and took pictures everywhere she went. She especially liked black and white photos. In her earlier years she developed her own film and printed her own pictures. She also enjoyed and studied cake decorating. She baked her youngest sister, Ollie's, wedding cake. While in Iceland, Anna and Bob were members of a square dance group.

Anna succumbed to cancer on April 11, 2018 at 11 p.m. with her daughter, Opal, by her side. A graveside service was held at Shiloh Cemetery, 6500 Cross Timbers Road, Flower Mound, Texas, on April 14, 2018 at 11 a.m. Interment followed.

The family would like to thank VITAS Hospice for their care during her final days, Mulkey-Mason Funeral Home for their compassionate professionalism, and Reverend John Peel for his beautiful graveside service.

While saddened by our loss, Anna leaves us rich in fond memories.
