In honor of my 2nd great grandmother.

BIO:
Anna was born into two prominent families: the Winterlings of Baltimore, Maryland, and the Clemmers of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Her father was an embarrassment to his family, and drank himself to death when Anna was only 9. She had a very Catholic upbringing with her mother and stepfather, and she remained strong in her faith for the rest of her life.

Anna married Joseph Henry Williams, Jr. in Philadelphia in 1917. They had 3 daughters and a son, but their marriage was not a happy one. Her husband suffered from mental disease, and they separated shortly before he was committed to Byberry Mental Hospital. He died there in 1935, and Anna never remarried.

Anna Maria had a very difficult life, and was a bitter person as a result. She raised her granddaughter (my grandmother) to be a bitter individual as well.
