Obituary for Anna E. Bateson

Anna E. Bateson, 82, of Risingsun, passed away on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at Good Shepherd Home, in Fostoria.
She was born December 27, 1936 in Cottageville, West Virginia, to Harry and Lizzie (Durst) Kemenah, Sr.
She married James L. Bateson on November 15, 1958, in Risingsun, and he preceded her in death on January 18, 2016.
Anna is survived by her children, Gary (Helen) Bateson, of Clyde, Joni (Tracy) Lamb, of Fremont, Jodi (Tom) Law, of Valencia, CA, and Scott (Cathy) Bateson, of Romulus, MI; seven grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was also preceded in death by her parents, and siblings, Aurilla Flowers, Marvin "Buckshot" Kemenah, Francis Kemenah, Catherine Bankey, and Harry Kemenah, Jr.
Anna was a 1955 Risingsun High School graduate. She was a member of St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Risingsun where she was also a member of the women's group, of which she was the treasurer. She also attended Jonahs People Church at Good Shepherd Home.
Other memberships included the card club and the Dirty Gerties Club.
Anna loved the game of baseball and traveling with friends to Cincinnati Reds games. On one occasion while in Cincinnati she and friends were staying in the same hotel where Johnny Bench was a guest and attempted to "visit" him on his floor. Needless to say, they were abruptly escorted out. She was involved in the Risingsun youth baseball and ran the concession stand for many years.
She was the bookkeeper for Wells Inc., in Risingsun from 1975-2015 when she retired. Prior to that she had worked for the Cygnet Savings Bank in Wayne.
Anna was definitely not a homebody. Just say the word "go" and she was ready to travel here there and everywhere, near and far.
She was happy-go-lucky, and always wore a smile.
A memorial visitation will take place from 10 -11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2019, at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Risingsun, where a memorial service will begin at 11:30 a.m., Pastor Melissa Hart, officiating.
Per Anna's request, attire should be casual an joyful.
Memorial contributions may be considered to the Good Shepherd Home Cascades Unit Activities Fund.
Anna will be laid to rest in Scott Trinity Cemetery, near Risingsun.
Mann-Hare-Hoening Funeral Home, Fostoria has been entrusted with arrangements.
Anna's family would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to the caring staff of the Good Shepherd Home Cascades Unit
