Anna Lee Barron, age 89, passed away peacefully on July 15, 2022 in Glendale, AZ. Anna was born on November 10, 1932 in Leeton, MO to Norman F. and Mary (Marie) S. Cox (Epperson). Anna made her home in the Phoenix area for the last 55 years. Anna is survived by her son, Douglas S. Barron of New York, NY, and three daughters; Elizabeth J. Sesma of Phoenix, AZ, Jane M. Pettiette (Kevin) of Peoria, AZ, and Laurie A. Stanek (Scott) of Chaska, MN.

Anna grew up on a farm in a small town in Missouri as one of eight children. Growing up on a farm instilled in her a strong work ethic. She was incredibly loyal and always impressed her children to follow the golden rule. She worked for over 25 years as a bookkeeper, then worked until she was 80 in a receptionist position. She found a family-oriented business that allowed her to work without having to learn how to use those dumb computers. She loved that job and her coworkers. Anna was a loyal friend and always concerned about the well-being of others. Anna loved ballroom dancing and spent much of her life teaching and participating in local community dances. Anna loved to play cards and games with family and friends and could roll a Yahtzee on demand. Mostly, Anna enjoyed caring for and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
