Anna Kaffenberger

April 7, 1936 — September 24, 2018

Anna Lois Kaffenberger, age 82 of Beardstown, passed away Monday, September 24, 2018 at Passavant Area Hospital in Jacksonville. She was born April 7, 1936 in Salem, the daughter of Lyndle and Florine Fowler Baker. She married Joseph H. Kaffenberger on December 17, 1955 at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Beardstown, and he preceded her in death on September 23, 1997. She is survived by her children Joseph W. Kaffenberger of Beardstown, Duncan E. Kaffenberger of Beardstown, Jeffrey L. (wife Melissa) Kaffenberger of Chapin, and Jody A. (husband Jon) Vredenburgh of Beardstown; eight grandchildren Mike, Adam, Christopher, Bethany, Isaac, Hannah, Shiloh, and Thomas; two great grandchildren Aaron T. and Scarlett J.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister Dottie Miller, and a brother Ronnie Baker. Mrs. Kaffenberger traveled with her husband during his time with the United States Army, living in Fort Worth, TX and Sault Sainte Marie, MI, until finally making their home in Beardstown. Anna was a loving mother and grandmother, always doing whatever she could for her family. Her only hobby was watching her soap operas and the news…never missed a day.
