Anna Rita Esgro

Our heavenly Father has called Anna Rita Esgro to rest in peace with Him in heaven. She was loved by all who knew her and will be deeply missed. She devoted her life to her family and God. She was a caring wife, loving mother, adoring grandmother, and a trusted sister and friend.

Anna Esgro was born Sept. 19, 1936, in Saginaw, Mich., to Mario and Antoinette Naples. She was the youngest of seven children.

She moved to California at the age of 19. There she met her husband of 45 years, Louis Esgro.

They raised three children and enjoyed six grandchildren. They moved to Bullhead City, where they resided for the last 14 years. Anna passed away on Dec. 8, 2007, in Phoenix.

She leaves behind her loving husband, Louis Esgro of Bullhead City; her three children, David (Lisa) of La Mirada, Calif., Terri (Patrick) of Kingman, Mike (Mitzi) also of Kingman; and her six grandchildren, Kristen, Sarah, Ryan, Ashley, Sean and Colin.

There will be a funeral mass held at noon on Friday, Dec. 21, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Laughlin.

There will be a small gathering immediately following the Mass. A private interment will take place at a later date.
