May 11, 1934 - October 25, 2019 Mary Ann Lindberg, fondly know as Ann, went to be with Jesus on Friday, October 25, 2019. She died peacefully at her home in Anacortes, attended by her family and assisted by Hospice of the Northwest. Ann was born May 11, 1934 in Rapid City, South Dakota to Albert Gross and Ellen (Pike) Gross. When she was three years old, her family moved to Alger, Washington and she graduated from Burlington High School. Ann's father owned and operated the Alger Chevron gas station and her mother worked as a cook at schools and camps. Ann attended Beauty School in Seattle in 1952, where she lived at the YWCA. Ann then met her husband Bill Lindberg at the Burlington Bakery where they both worked. They were married on July 6, 1953 and moved to Anacortes. In Anacortes she worked as a beautician until her first child was born. Ann worked as a para-professional at the Anacortes High School Library from 1970 to 1996. In the summers, she managed the Best Road Berry Farm in Skagit Valley. Ann and her husband Bill joined the Christian Reformed Church in Anacortes in the early 1960s and remained active church members their entire lives. Ann was involved in the church as an elder, Sunday school superintendent and nursery attendant. Ann and Bill generously opened their home to everyone; they lived their Christian values by giving freely and sharing with anyone who needed a helping hand. Ann was preceded in death by her beloved husband Bill. She was predeceased by her sister Jean and she is survived by her sister Shirley.
