Anna May Doeden was born to eternal life on April 8, 2019 after 98 years on this earth. She was born March 25, 1921 in Hutchinson, Kansas to Martin Oesterreich & his wife, Sarah (Mickey).

Special niece, Patty Doeden-Lazar and special nephew, Tony Doeden & wife, Coral also survive.
When Anna May was a very young child, her parents moved from Kansas to California settling in Pasadena. She grew up in the warmth of her parents love & with a large extended family. Family life was centered around their church which is where she met her husband, Ray. They married in 1941, raised their children in Pasadena & were together for 39 years prior to Ray’s passing. As life moved on & her children moved on, Anna May made the transition from sunny Southern California to the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin to live with her daughter and family the last 28 years of her life. She will be warmly remembered for her patience, love and quiet dignity. She loved to cook, decorate her home, travel to Door County and play with her grandchildren & great-grandchildren. Fall afternoons were reserved for Green Bay Packer games and Winter was special if they made it into the playoffs. Always ready with a hug, a smile & quite often a pie! She had a deep faith in God & while we, who survive will miss her greatly, we know that Heaven is sweeter because she is there. So in the words penned by her grandson, David, when he was just a little boy, “Go with God and let nature be thy guide”. To a life well lived, Rest In Peace dear Anna May (Mom, Grandma and Oma) we will see you again.
