Canton- Anna Lee (Post) Haggerty, 97, of Canton, passed away at 8:24 AM on Friday, August 30, 2019 at Graham Hospital in Canton. She was born on May 31, 1922 in Bryant, Illinois, to Earl and Lena (Wilcoxen) Post. She married Robert Linn Haggerty on March 9, 1947 in Canton, who preceded her in death in December of 1995.

Anna Lee graduated from Canton High School in 1940, where she met Robert. They began their life together as farmers and soon after started their family with Linda and Dennis born a year apart. She and Robert adopted Lori twelve years later. She loved life and deeply loved God and her family. She was active in the church all her life, teaching Sunday school, supporting her family members’ involvement in the church and cooking for potlucks. Anna Lee was last a member of Covenant Community Church in Canton.
As a devoted wife, she worked steadfastly by Robert’s side in farming and their restaurant business. Her family was always her priority and she loved having them visit—she especially loved seeing her grandkids and great-grandkids. She prayed for her family and many friends every day. She kept her deep joy and sense of humor till the end. Her family legacy and traditions will live on, and she will be greatly missed.
