Story of my mom: Anna Selma Gudan was born during the depression and grew up during World War II in Es Maryland. She managed to overcome many obstacles in her life as she was growing up. She married young and raised 6 wonderful children. Anna was mostly a stay at home Mom who loved to cook meals, bake pies and cakes, and take care of the house. Taking care of others was one of the things she just did. Whether it was her children, her mom or her mother in law, or her grandchildren and her husband she managed it all. Having friends and family over for great meals always made her happy along with a clean house. She cooked meals for special holidays at her Senior Housing apartment and loved when others would complement her. She lived for this. It bothered her the most when she could not do this anymore. She was a very talented woman and that is where other members of the family received some of their talents . She used to love to paint and draw but mostly to crochet, especially baby blankets for the new grandchildren. Recently she learned to knit and it was one of the things she wanted to accomplish but her hands would not allow her. Need a plant taken care of or is not growing well she was amazing. Orchids were her passion along with her herbal plants but she could grow a mean african violet. Many of her plants are being distributed to family and friends. Outside her window was like living in a National Geographic show. She fed foxes, birds, squirrels and stray cats. We purchased so much food to feed these friends. She also cooked for the animals and gave them her scraps. She fed them all. The birds would peck on the window and sometimes wake her up to be fed. She had a favorite cat, Jack, that showed up the same time every day. He purred after she fed him and rubbed his head against the window to be petted. Mom would always want him to come in but she knew that would be a mistake. He would clean himself in contentment and slept peacefully on her window sill. I know she is watching over him. She waited each year for her Carolina wrens to return in the Spring. She would get so excited. This is the bird we should look for as a sign of her presence. Once a month the family would meet with her at the Senior Housing for Karaoke so everyone could listen to her children and grandchildren sing. Of course, she would cook mounds of good food for everyone. Her grandson Jimmy (Jimbo) would sing everyone’s favorite ELVIS but he could just about sing anything. Elvis was in the house. Her daughter Shirley could belt out a mean Shania Twain or Cher. Her granddaughter Tonya loved country music and would bring down the house with the Dixie Chicks, Martina McBride and other female country singers. Mom had her favorite songs and they would have to sing them for her. Rudy the DJ would sing, “One in a million” just for her, she blushed all over herself. One of her most favorites were when grandson Jimbo would sing, “The Wonder of you”. It made her night. Then there was her late son Bobby who all the women swooned over. He would sing his Elvis songs and made Mom so proud. He is so missed. Talk about lucky she would win at Bingo all the time. Some games she just let others win. She just enjoyed the company. She also played the lottery and was always lucky but not a big winner. She loved to travel with her husband Bill in their motor home but mostly to Florida where she decided to live for 15 years till Bill passed away and then came back to Baltimore.
