Anna Marie Horst was born at home in Corsica, SD on March 11th, 1946 to Samuel and Ellen (Beck) Schryvers. Anna graduated from Corsica High School in 1964.
On April 27th, 1968 Anna married the love of her life, Steven Leroy Horst. The couple began their married life with service to our country. Steve began his US Navy career and Anna began her Navy wife career. In 1985 they retired from the Navy and began the 2nd chapter in life. For many years Anna taught at the Corsica and Dell Rapids public school systems as a Special Education Teachers’ Assistant.
After their 2nd retirement, Steve and Anna enjoyed traveling to warm places with friends, bowling, golfing and their trips to casinos or “The Office” as the family liked to say. But above all, Anna loved spending time with her grandchildren. Whether it was saying the humorous “get up you got a job” or telling them “get your homework done” the love and joy she shared with them will forever remain in their hearts. Anna passed April 7th, 2016 after a long and valiant struggle with cancer. She was determined to stay around as long as she could for her grandchildren and they benefited from that determination.
Grateful for having shared her life are her husband, Steve; sons, Jeff Horst (Stacie), Jason Horst (Dawn); daughter, Jennifer Bartelt (Chris); 7 grandchildren, Cassity, Trever, Sydnie, Josie, Zachery, Tanner, Dawson; and 9 brothers and sisters. Anna was preceded in death by her parents.
