Lois Bernice Rittenberry Bruno Anson, 92, formerly of Elizabethtown and Radcliff, died Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012, in Lawrenceburg.
Born Dec. 19, 1919, in Louisville to Joseph B. and Katie M.

Bernice was a "Rosie the Riviter" during WWII, working on warships as an electrician at the Baltimore docks, and later worked at Fort Knox until she retired in 1982. Dancing has been her life-long love, and she danced at her 92nd birthday party. She truly lived life "her way."

Anson (Keiko); by six grandchildren, Cameron Bozorgzad (Shari), Todd Bruno (Katrina), Tracy Bruno (Cynthia) and Christina, Jessica and Phillip Anson; four great-grandchildren, Nicole and Natalie Bozorgzad, Andrew Bruno and Daniel J.

Visitation is from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday and continues at 9 a.m. Monday at the funeral home.
