Myra Anne Serfas passed away Thursday, November 17, 2016, at the VNA Hospice House in East Stroudsburg. She was 91.

Born in 1924, Anne met a young Canadensis man, Conrad Serfas, in 1944 while he was serving in the Navy and stationed in her hometown of Norfolk, VA. Their romance blossomed quickly in the war era of WWII, and they soon eloped before Conrad shipped out to serve in the Pacific.

At the close of the war, and Conrad's safe return, Anne moved to Canadensis, PA to begin married life and raise a family. She and Conrad owned and operated Woodland Cottages on Seese Hill Road in the 1950s and 60's, and moved to Tannersville, PA in 1969. Anne worked for many years at the Tobyhanna Army Depot as a data analyst.

While Anne's southern accent faded, her southern grace remained throughout her life. She was kind to all she met, and viewed the world through a positive lens and with a curious mind. She was a prolific oil painter and photographer and documented her surroundings and daily life. She loved gardening, cooking, the Charlie Rose Show and most of all her family. Ann never feared change and became computer savvy in her 80s and Face Timed with her children in her 90s.
Anne is loved by many and will be remembered often by all who knew her.
