Anna Lee Pulliam passed away peacefully, on April 30th, in The Dalles, Oregon.
Anna was born on April 11th, 1926, in Plano Iowa, to John and Ellen (Peppers) Bane. She lived in many places including Iowa, Virginia and Washington before moving to The Dalles in 1964. One of her many accomplishments was advocating against obstacles, to initiate the 1st Brownie/ Girl Scout troop program in Fort Story, VA. Anna also provided loving daycare for children in The Dalles for over 10 years, while raising her own children.
Anna loved spending time with her family, and spent many hours having fun with her grandchildren. She also enjoyed traveling with her husband Forrest, the Trail Blazers, bowling, and gambling (at which she was amazingly lucky). Anna was also a talented artist, seamstress, and a member of the Wenatchee Eagles Lodge.
Anna is survived by her children and their families: Pat Davis of Dufur, Jim Prater of Pendleton, Sandie Bartholomew of The Dalles, Cyndi Wargneir of Troutdale, Lisa Rundell of The Dalles, 16 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. Anna is also survived by her sister, Glendora Jolly and her brother, John Bane, both of Wenatchee, WA. She was preceded in death by her husband, Forrest Pulliam in 2001.
At Anna’s request, no public service will be held. A private celebration of life will be held at a later time.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the ARC of the Mid-Columbia, PO Box 521, The Dalles, OR or Heart of Hospice, 2621 Wasco Street, Hood River, OR.
