Anna Mae Dyken- Edwards was born on October 9, 1927 in Guernsey, Platte County, Wyoming to Earl and Anna Baker. She was the baby of six children (four brothers, one sister). When she was born the family called her little Mugs. They called her Mugs from then on. The Lord called her to heaven on June 8, 2021.
Anna graduated from Lingle High School in Wyoming. She left home and became a secretary; beginning in Wyoming with the State Department of Education and the U.S. Army Recruiting Station, both in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Shortly after WWII she moved to Richland, Washington and worked for General Electric. She retired in 1989 from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Anna loved to have fun (especially at the Wonder Woman slot machines); so we will! Her wish for us was to be happy and have fun. Please wear your favorite super hero T-Shirt/attire. If you would prefer wear red, white, and blue. She was a true patriot and loved America.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the USO or the Chaplaincy Hospice House in Kennewick.
