Anna Georgia Miller Siegfried
Birth: Oct. 8, 1893
Fontanelle
Adair County
Iowa, USA
Death: Jan. 9, 1964
Creston
Union County
Iowa, USA

Anna was the daughter of Herman Charles Miller and his wife, Magdalena May "Lena" (Winter) Miller. She married and had two daughters, Leona and Earla May. Anna's first husband left her when her younger daughter was about a year old. Anna returned to Creston, Iowa with her daughters and lived with her parents. On 5 May 1917, she suffered the worst loss of all, the death of Earla May to meningitis.

Anna worked as a housekeeper to support her remaining daughter, Leona.

On 16 March 1929, Anna married John Edward Siegfried, son of Reuben Edward and Lena (Anthony) Siegfried, in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Anna and John's household hold consisted of the two of them, Anna's daughter Leona, and John's brother Roland. Later, John's father would live with them until he entered a home. After the death of Anna's mother, her father lived with them until his death in 1959. During the nearly 36 years of their marriage, Anna and John never lived alone. Their home welcomed all and love was a staple according to those who knew them.

Anna's recipe for Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies was once published in the local newspaper as being "the best" cookie recipe.

For Anna's funeral, the Union County Courthouse closed to enable the county officers and employees to attend.

Anna's nieces and nephews have all spoken about what a wonderful person "Aunt Anna" was. I wish I could have known her but she died seven months before I was born and I was named after her as was my mother, Daisy Ann, Anna's granddaughter.
