Today I went to the memorial service of a hell of a Democratic dame.
A lifelong FDR Democrat, Anna Zyck. She was so full of life and had the kind of spunk that made you know that she did not suffer fools at all. I am privileged to be included in the people she considered a friend.
She was a Democrat’s Democrat. Voted in every primary. Voted in every election. Always had every Democrat’s sign on her lawn come election time. She was always decked out in her red, white, and blue outfit each and every Memorial Day parade.
She was a registered nurse and a graduate of the St. Francis Hospital School of Nursing, Trenton. Anna was also a graduate of the Nurse Cadet Program at Lakehurst during World War II. During her lengthy nursing career, she was a nurse at the Hunterdon Medical Center, a private duty nurse, a nurse at the Hunterdon Developmental Center and was a longtime volunteer nurse with the Senior Health Services of Hunterdon County.
She received a Governor's Award for volunteer nursing.
Her sense of humor knew no bounds. Anna, we are all better off from having known you. And we will feel your loss each and every election day.
If there’s a political heaven, they have a new activist to contend with.
