She was born the daughter of Louis and Belva (Vrooman) Gamertsfelder Nov. 15, 1920, in Burgoon. Anna Lou married her classmate, sweetheart and neighbor, Warren Earl Klopp June 27, 1942, and they spent 63 wonderful years together until his passing in 2005.

She finally retired Nov. 15, 1987, from Lesher Printing, where she worked in the bindery department.

Anna Lou was a member of Mother’s Club, Farm Women’s Club, served as the Burgoon village clerk, and presided as an election judge for Jackson Township.
