Mrs. Anna was born in Beaufort County on Oct. 16, 1957, daughter of Ellis Grey Myers, Sr. and Hillegonda “Helen” Van Wyk. She was a 1975 graduate of Pungo Christian Academy and continued her education at East Carolina University. Her working career started as a math teacher at Pungo Christian Academy and she transferred to Terra Ceia Christian School where she retired from teaching after 35 years. Mrs. Anna not only taught her students, but she also assisted in molding them for life after school by her life being an example. Her love of children led her to hold other positions at the school as the Beta Club advisor, serving on the education committee, as the school’s guidance counselor and the Senior advisor. Mrs. Anna also was co-owner/co-operator of Keyzer Catering in Pantego. She was a member of Terra Ceia Christian Reformed Church.

Surviving along with her husband Mark, of the home, are her parents, Ellis and Helen Myers, of Pantego; two daughters, Hillary K. Keyzer, of Belhaven, and Andrea Latham (James), of Bath; two brothers, Ellis G. “Sandy” Myers (Sandra), of Pantego, and David L. Myers (Rosa), of Plymouth; two sisters, Geraldine Faye Guercio (Rich), of Long Island, New York, and Brenda Jay Van Vuren (Tony), of Washington; two grandchildren, Kaitlyn Oden and James Gruer, III; and her employees of Keyzer Catering, which she considered as her family. She was preceded in death by a son, Isaac Keyzer.
