Anna Richmond, age 88, of Brodhead, WI, formerly of Chicago, IL, passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by her family on Thursday, March 20, 2014. She was born on Dec. 6, 1925, in Cook County, IL, the daughter of Joseph and Anna (Kovarik) Zib. She married Thomas Richmond of Chicago, on Nov. 20, 1948. Anna and her husband moved to Brodhead, in 1963 to farm. After her husband passed away in 1968, she continued to live on the farm. Anna was employed at Farm & Fleet in Janesville, for over 20 years. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren and her family. She enjoyed watching all of her grandchildren participate in their many activities and they could always count on her to be their biggest fan. She was looking forward to the birth of two more great-grandchildren this year. She was also an active member of St. Augustine Church in Footville, WI.
