Anna B. Case, 86,

Anna B. Case, 86, of 7th Avenue, passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2009, at her home surrounded by her family.

 Born on Jan. 22, 1923, in Whitehall, she was the daughter of the late John and Mary (Dell Uoma) Brock.

Anna graduated from Whitehall High School in 1942, worked for General Electric and owned and operated two taverns in Whitehall with her husband, Bob.

She and Bob spent many happy years together. They enjoyed golfing, bowling, cookouts, traveling with a great group of friends and most of all she loved her weekly card games.

She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Post 83, the B.P.O.E. No. 1491 Auxiliary of Whitehall and the Chamber of Commerce.  For many years, she traveled to nursing homes and hospitals once a week to sit and visit with the residents.

Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her beloved husband, Bob; one son, Thomas Case; four brothers, Joe Brock, John Brock, Tony Brock and Paul Brock; and one sister, Chris (Brock) Miggins.

 She is survived by her three children, Robert Case and his wife, Joanne, John Case, Kathy (Case) Gleason and her husband, Jim Gleason; three grandchildren, Heather (Case) McGee and her husband, Kevin, Sam Gleason and Chris Gleason; one great-grandchild, Anna McGee; and several beloved nieces and nephews.

 A Mass of Christian burial was celebrated on Saturday, Oct. 31, at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall with the Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor, officiating.

 Interment followed at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.

 Calling hours were held Friday, Oct. 30, at the Jillson Funeral Home Inc., 46 Williams St., Whitehall.

 In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in Anna’s name to the Washington County Hospice, 415 Lower Main St., Hudson Falls, N.Y. 12839.
