She also served as local Welfare administrator. During the World War, she was a leader in the work done by the women of this community, and a building on her premises served as headquarters for Red Cross activities , to which she gave untiring effort. At the close of the war, Anna's work was recognized by the award of a special medal. She continued to be a local Red Cross chairman.
