Anna (Santner) Hager, 92, of Plainville, formerly of Terryville, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 24, 2021 at Apple Rehab Farmington Valley. She now joins her husband, Alois, who predeceased her 21 years ago.
Born in Untertannowitz, in the German speaking area of Sudetenland in former Czechoslovakia, she was one of four children to the late Franz and Josefa (Schultz) Santner. After World War II, her family moved to Austria where she met her husband, Alois. They married in 1948 and immigrated to the United States in 1956, where they raised their two daughters. Anna stayed true to her German heritage through her dedicated affiliation with the Hartford Saengerbund, where she was an honorary member and previously served on the Board of Directors. She was a constant presence at their many events and leaves many lifelong friends. Known for her cooking expertise, she provided many events with German specialties baked with love and enjoyed by many. A proud and devoted Omi, she was happiest when surrounded by her family, especially Wednesday Palatschinken (German crepes) nights with the great-grandchildren.
She leaves her daughters, Brigitte and husband William Stiles; Lydia and husband Robert Witik; grandchildren, Jason Pearl and wife Sandra, Jared Pearl and wife Peggy, Jordan Pearl, Peter Senick and wife Jennifer, Ryan Senick and fiancée Towana, Brittany Brandt and husband Thomas and 13 great-grandchildren; nieces, Linda Saumer and Vera Schumann; all who will miss her dearly. She was predeceased by her brother and two sisters.
