She was born on Oct. 1, 1910, the daughter of John and Laura (Steiner) Zimmerman in Fond du Lac County. Anna loved looking at the flowers and observing wild birds. She loved to go out for waffles/pancakes toped with strawberries and whipped cream. To keep her mid alert, she memorized Philippians 4:8. Anna consoled people by saying "This too will pass."

On Dec. 3, 1932 Anna was united in marriage to Corwin Guell. They lived in Thorp for over 40 years. He preceded her in death in Dec. 1976. The happiness of each family member was a paramount importance to her. Everyone experienced her loving kindness.
