Obituary: Hearron, Anna Gertrude

Age 94

HEARRON, Anna Gertrude March 12, 1920 - March 6, 2014 Grandma Anna Hearron was taken into the loving arms of her Savior Jesus Christ on March 6, 2014, just six days before her 94th birthday. Anna was born March 12, 1920, in Hollister, CA to Daniel Earl and Lena Apperson Loder. She and her three siblings lived in several California towns with various family members while growing up. Anna’s love of nature and gardening was nurtured in California and remained one of her joys throughout her life. Anna met Lewis Virgil Hearron while he was serving in the Army Air Corps at Moffett Airfield and married him on November 4, 1941, in Los Gatos, CA. They were subsequently stationed at several western air bases during World War II. Their only child, Kenneth James Hearron, was born January 20, 1946, after which their young family moved to the Hearron family farm in the Yakima Valley, WA, and remained there four years. In 1950 the Hearrons moved permanently to Spokane, where Lewis earned his CPA license and founded Administration Services, Inc. in 1955. In 1966, Lewis and Anna joined the Trinity Baptist Church family and were active members for nearly 40 years. Anna was also active in the Spokane community as a charter and founding member of the CPA Wives Auxiliary, as well as a proud member of the Spokane Red Hats Club. Anna was a loyal, loving, and caring wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a gifted artist since childhood and her beautiful watercolor and oil paintings will remain family treasures as part of her lasting legacy. She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, and sister, Lewis, her husband of 62 years, and her son Ken. She is survived by her daughter-in-law Stephanie; grandchildren Andrea and Daniel, his wife Lacie, and her great-granddaughter Libby. Anna’s family extends heartfelt thanks to the highly skilled and always compassionate staff of the Rockwood at Hawthorne Retirement Community. All of us were treated with love, respect, and dignity throughout Anna’s ten year residency there. Following a private burial at Fairmount Memorial Park a Celebration of Anna’s Life will be held at Trinity Baptist Church, 6528 N. Monroe St. on Saturday, March15, 2014 at 2:00pm.
