She had a love for her family, her heritage and a great respect for Mother Nature and our creator. Anna’s roots to her Apache heritage were strong and unwavering – she relished in the native culture and was active with the Sundance circuit.
Anna spent several years in the Moab area with her mother, Jacque Zumwalt, and siblings, Jasper, Jesse, Rio, Raven, Snowbird and Spotted Elk. In the late 1990s, Anna left Moab with her then-infant son, Chino, to start life anew in northern California. Anna spent several years between northern California and southern Oregon, reconnecting with her relatives and the native culture she adored.
Anna lived and loved wholly. She was a friend to all and cared about humanity. She was a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, a niece, a cousin and a friend to many people who love her.
Anna will always be remembered for the passion and love she had for life, the ball of fire that she was, and the smile that could light up the darkest room.
