Following the war, Anna was married to her loving late husband Henry Nathaniel Frye for 67 years. She was extremely proud of raising her two sons Gregory Henry Frye of Huntersville, North Carolina and Ronald Nathaniel Frye of Freeport, Maine.
Anna created a loving home for her husband and two sons and thoroughly enjoyed her hobbies of flower gardening, home design, baking, and holiday cooking. She enjoyed creating a beautiful home for her family and especially delighted in celebrating holiday events with her family.
Anna was a member of First United Methodist Church in Fairmont (now Life United Methodist). Anna volunteered over 50 years to the Altar Guild and Methodist Women's Church Circle. She was also a member of the Green Hills garden club and enjoyed garden tours in Fairmont. She earnestly enjoyed family summer beach vacations, as well as adventurous travel throughout the U.S. with her husband.
Anna is survived by her two sons Gregory Henry (Rita) Frye of Huntersville, NC and Ronald Nathaniel Frye of Freeport, Maine., her two grandsons Gregory Casey Frye of Charlotte, NC and Blake Austin Frye of Orlando, Florida and also a great-grandson Chace.
Anna was preceded in death by her brother George Sikinow (Vera) of Farmington, Elsie Beavan (Arthur) of Columbus, Ohio, Kathryn Campbell (Bill) of Atlanta, Georgia, and Ann McCoy (Robert) of Grays Flats, West Virginia.
