Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - OBITUARIES -

Born Novem­ber 26, 1916, Anna Louise Wert, (nee McLar­ren) went home to be with her Lord on the evening of Novem­ber 14, 2016, just 12 days short of her 100th birth­day.

Anna was one of four chil­dren born to Ruth and Samuel McLar­ren in Clearfield, Penn­syl­va­nia. She was pre­de­ceased by a sis­ter, He­len E. McLar­ren, and a brother, Ed­win Parker McLar­ren. Her sis­ter, Vir­ginia, now lives in Texas.

Af­ter high school grad­u­a­tion in Ab­secon, NJ, Anna worked un­til she mar­ried Clifton R. Wert. They had two chil­dren, Bar­bara A. (Wert) Leschinskey and Robert C. Wert. Anna’s hus­band, Clifton, passed away in Jan­uary 1979. Anna is sur­vived by her son and daugh­ter as well as six grand­chil­dren and nine great grand­chil­dren.

Anna died peace­fully at home in Malvern, Penn­syl­va­nia where she had lived with her son, Robert, and fam­ily since 1980 where she was a “sec­ond mother” to his four chil­dren. She loved to bake, mak­ing cook­ies and pies for her fam­ily. She of­ten sent care pack­ages to her grand­chil­dren when away at col­lege mak­ing her a “fa­vorite” of the dorm mates. She im­parted wis­dom, was de­voted to prayer, and was al­ways ready for a hug, a laugh, or to lis­ten.

She was a mem­ber and Dea­con of Great Val­ley Pres­by­te­rian Church in Malvern. She was ac­tive in the Mis­sion­ary So­ci­ety of the church. Known as a ded­i­cated “prayer war­rior”, Anna main­tained a con­stant prayer life for her fam­ily and those fac­ing dif­fi­cul­ties and in need of God’s bless­ings.
