  1. So sorry to hear of Anna’s passing and wish I could attend her celebration, but I am not available. She was indeed a wonderful person and such a wonderful person to my father, Louie Dukart. She will be missed. Ginger Dukart Vermeersch

  2. So sorry for your loss. I won’t be able to make it to the Celebration of Life, but my thoughts are with you, Anna’s family and friends. Anna will be dearly missed by so many. I Like Ginger said, she was a wonderful person to our father, Louie Dukart. I remember Dad telling me he would cook an egg for Ann’s dog, Bandit, and Ann saying how Bandit loved it.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. She was my most favorite Aunt, and she invited my Native American Wife into the Family with great generosity. I also can remember so many good times we had together growing up. She will be missed.
