Anna was a beloved team member of the Department of Pediatrics and, prior to that, the Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation. Children and those with great need were close to her heart. Though she considered herself as a 'nobody', her large heart, her laughter, her wisdom reaches us all.
Many have expressed that they would like to donate to Anna's memory, the Department of Pediatrics will use the funds to continue supporting things that Anna would have loved.
Below is a quote from one of those close to her that were with her in her last hours, and speak volumes about our dearest friend and colleague.
Anna will be immortal simply for what she did for others. It remains, after she's gone and after we're gone. The good, the love, and the joy will always be.
With extreme gratitude to each of you,
“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.”
