At the age of 15 she returned to Romania where she lived until 1960 when she returned to East Hanover and then back to the Bronx in 1970. In 2000 she moved to Whippany. Anna worked as a private caregiver in Manhattan for many years and later as a private nurse at Crestwood in Whippany. She was a long time parishioner at St. Theresa’s Church in the Bronx.
