The President of the Senior Citizens Association and our dear friend, AnnaBelle Rogers, has passed away the week before Christmas.
AnnaBelle volunteered for anything she could help with – not only at the Hardin Senior Center, but in her church, the Heritage Acres board, and the museum to name a few. She always made the visitors welcome at the center and greeted everyone each day. Her warm smile and laugh is surely missed.
She was a friend to many because she cared for so many people. She kept in touch and visited friends in the nursing home or in the hospital, or even would make a phone call to let them know she was thinking of them. She cared deeply and loved her whole family. She was the one who helped them all through time of loss and sadness.
AnnaBelle never asked much of anyone. She looked after everyone. She stood up for the little guy. She was proud to accomplish the placement of Janet Rogers’ plaque from the downtown outside area into the Big Horn County Courthouse for all to honor. AnnaBelle was named after both of her grandmothers and, thus, the spelling of “AnnaBelle” as her mother wished. AnnaBelle was a servant to all. Condolences are sent to her family including sons George and Loren, and daughter Nan.
Two other Hardin residents passed away this week. Lorraine Meisch and Eunice Koebbe will be fondly remembered as well.
