    It was sad to receive the news of Ms Anna Gene passing. I remember Anna Gene as a classmate from the Couch Class of 1959. She was very quiet but a fun person to be around. Once she got to know you, her loving heart and personality really began to shine. We have kept in touch with each other for 64 years. I’m grateful to have had her as a friend, and her friendship will truly be missed. My Sincere Sympathy, Classmate Marietta Barton
