I got to experience Anna’s love for people and God as a member of a small group she helped facilitate my freshman year at Hope College. Along with her friend Laura, Anna created a safe environment where we felt welcome and supported amidst all the change that starting college brought. We absolutely loved her. I remember there were always baked goods when we met – we never left hungry!

Anna modeled so much joy, hard work, and faithfulness. I can only imagine how that impact was multiplied as she went on to have a family and career as a midwife, and send my love and prayers to her family and friends. Anna had a beautiful heart and, clearly, a beautiful life.
