In her later years, she was proud of being able to mow her two-acre yard on a riding lawn mower. In the last phase of her life, she was an avid reader and enjoyed doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles.

Anna Bell was a member of the First Baptist Church of Winnfield, LA, and a friend to everyone she met.
