The daughter of Joe and Baida Heiser. Anna was the oldest of five daughters. Anna attended school in Savage, Enid and Lambert, MT. She met the love of her life, Fritz Rehbein when she was 16 years old; but the first time Fritz had seen Anna she was 14 year old and he knew that was the girl he was going to marry. They married on February 18, 1950 when she was 17 and a senior in high school. She graduated from Lambert High School in May of 1950. They were blessed with their first son, Kurt. Didn’t stop there, they were blessed with seven more children, Kent, Kitty, Karen, Kim, Kevin, Kristie and Kyle. They farmed, ranched and raised their children plus many others in the Lambert, MT area. In 1973, they left Lambert and moved to Ekalaka, MT. Anna worked at the Ekalaka Hospital, cooking. She spent much time driving kids to sporting events, Rodeo being the favorite. They left Ekalaka in 1977 and moved to Gillette, WY. Fritz worked at Farmer’s Co-op and Anna worked at the Holiday Inn as a cook, and also at the Co-op Self-Serve Station. Everyone loved her. Anna loved to dance, she won the jitterbug contest her junior year in High School. Many knew how she loved her tea pots. She was the world’s best cook. She loved going to garage sales, bingo, playing cards and auctions. She also loved babies and babies feet; she would just eat them up they were so cute. Her giggle would light up a room. The big family get together was always Easter. She cooked a great dinner and it was just a fun day. Everyone was very blessed to have such a beautiful and wonderful person in their lives; she made all of her kids better and stronger people. Anna was a devoted Catholic, with a strong faith. She prayed the rosary daily; she would say “always pray, makes the world a much better place and makes us all good people.” Her door was always open with a big hug. She will be greatly missed but we all know she is in paradise with her loving Lord.
