As a young girl she would sell oranges on the street. She moved to New York City with family at the age of 15 and started work making clothing. She loved dancing and won several contests. The family later moved to San Francisco, where she would go on to meet her husband Albert Weathers. They would go on to have three children, Maria, Frank, and John; she loved all her children equally.

Ana was a businesswoman having had rental properties, two grocery stores, dry cleaners, and a ranch where she would go to see her beloved goats. Ana was a 4H leader for the group Nanny and the kids. A founding member of the fire department in Dora, and a Room mother to her three children in grade school, Ana was also a member of the VFW’s Ladies Auxiliary post 9744 for 64 years in service to our veterans.

She passed peacefully two days after a stroke with family by her side; she knew how much she was loved.
