Joe 6-pack ^ | 10/11/11 | self

Posted on 10/11/2011 4:30:59 PM PDT by Joe 6-pack

I just came home from work to a phone call from my folks who informed me of the passing of my aunt Anne, otherwise known as Colonel Anne C. Jablunovsky, US Army (Ret). As an Army Nurse, she had served in both Korea and Vietnam, retiring after 26 years of active duty. Here's a photo of her from the Pacific Stars & Stripes with General Matt Ridgeway

Over Memorial Day in 2007, our hometown newspaper did a front page article on our family's military service, In this family, service to country runs deep, which captured some of her reflections and musings...she's wearing the red blazer in the feature photo. She served as a tremendous inspiration to me in her love of both God and Country. She was in so many ways everything that is good about this country, starting out quite literally as a coal miner's daughter and having traveled the world, and experienced horrific things, only to come home and live her life in the peace she had helped purchase for the rest of us.

God Bless You Aunt Anne! R.I.P.

I am sure your aunt is responsible for saving many lives of our brave soldiers, marines, airman, and sailors during her army nursing duties. I am sure the Lord has ushered her into eternity and said well done thy good and faithful servant!

Thank you all for your kind remarks, thoughts and sympathies. My Aunt will be laid to rest tomorrow morning. I would like to share with all of you her full obituary, and while you all may have only come to know her this week, I would be honored to have the members of my FR family sign the online Guest Book.

Thank you all again for your warm thoughts, condolences and sympathies. My sister and brother-in-law have been preparing the eulogy, and have elected to include some of the thoughts expressed by y'all on this thread.
