Cartera, a nephew (whom she raised and treated as his own son), Manuel Cruz and wife Laura, and a friend and caregiver, Shauna Cone and other extended family members. Ana was very eclectic and a loving and devoted, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and aunt. She had her own way of being herself and dealt with life in her own way. She loved traveling, camping, and spending time with her loved ones.  She treasured the times spent with her beloved canine companions.

Services will be private and at the convenience of her family.  Arrangements are under the direction and care of Mohawk Valley Funerals and Cremations, 7507 State Route 5, Little Falls (corner of Bidleman Road), 315-508-5131.  Please visit to add to Ana’s online tribute page.
