Anna grew up in Monroe County and graduated from Amory High School and attended Southern Methodist University. While in Amory she was a member of First United Methodist Church and later in life she became a member of Heritage Church in Hattiesburg, MS. Anna worked her career as an Office Manager/Secretary at the College of Commerce and Business Administration at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL. She was a one-of-kind woman, who was beautiful inside and out.

She was blessed during her lifetime with two loving husbands. She first married Donald Solomon, II with whom she had two sons and then she married Kelly Knight. Her main passion in her life was her faith in God and her family.

In her free time, in addition to spending time with kids and grandkids she liked to travel, take care of animals, scrap books memories and cheer on her favorite team, Alabama. Her favorite type of music was Broadway musicals, smooth jazz, new age and Celtic music.
