(1914 – 2014)
One of the ending paragraphs in Sister Anna’s autobiography read, “My talents may be few but my adventures have been many.” A study of her life’s story reveals that her adventures have truly been many, but so are her talents. She wrote that she enjoyed reading, walking, studying Polish, and working with flowers. “I also find cleaning messy corners very rewarding.”
On September 28, 1914, in Pe Ell, Washington, also called “Little Poland,” a daughter was born to Bernard (Ben) and Anna (Soleric) Kosenski. In baptism, the infant received the name Anna Magdalen, in honor of both her mother and grandmother. She wrote, “My father told me that I was born at noon, which accounted for my good appetite.”
