Anna Katherine Juon of Madrid, Iowa, formerly of Ankeny and rural Polk City passed from this life on July 21, 2011 at the Madrid Home.
She was born October 12, 1919, to Alva LeRoy and Agnes Hazel (Sweeney) Darnall in Des Moines, Iowa. Anna attended and graduated from East High School in Des Moines where she was a member of the swim team and one of only a few women who received an athletic letter at the time. Anna worked as a comptometer operator for Flynn Dairy. During that time she met and later married Elmer Juon. They were introduced by her co-worker Ivy Helland who eventually became her sister-in-law. After marriage, Elmer and Anna farmed south of Alleman and raised three children. Anna spent many years as a member of the Y-4 Club, 4-H leader and CCD teacher at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Elkhart, and in later years was a proud Perky Penguin.
Anna loved baking, needlework, doing word searches, attending church, going for coffee or out to eat with her friends, and spending time with family, especially her long awaited great-granddaughters.
Anna is preceded in death by her parents; husband; cousin, Francis Booe, who was like a sister to her; and her son, David in 2010.
