Anna Meyer Getting, daughter of Harm S. and Claaska Eiten Meyer, was born August 4, 1894, on a farm east of Wellsburg.

She attended rural school in Shiloh Township and received her catechism and Sunday School training in the Reformed German Church in Wellsburg.

On February 10, 1914, she was united in marriage to Fred F. Getting. They made their home on the Grandpa Getting farm near Holland for 23 years. In 1937, they moved to another farm in Lincoln Township. In 1947, they retired and moved to Wellsburg. Fred Getting passed away August 28, 1954, and the following year Anna moved to Holland. She made her home there until January of 1987, when she became a resident of the Long Term Care Unit.

In 1933 both Mr. and Mrs. Getting publicly professed their faith and became members of the Christian Reformed Church in Holland.

While in Wellsburg, they were members of the Reformed Church. In 1955, Anna's membership was transferred back to the Holland Christian Reformed Church. Anna was a faithful church member, and an active member of the Ladies Aid for nearly 50 years.

Anna was preceded in death by her parents; husband; an infant daughter in 1927; one son Clarence in 1970; six brothers; and one sister.

She is survived by two sons, Harvey and wife Gertie of Grundy Center, and Virgil and wife Iva Dell of Holland; a daughter, Ethel and husband Ed Schoolman of Holland; a daughter-in-law Lamka Getting of Grundy Center; four grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and a sister-in-law, Mrs. Lubert (Jennie) Meyer of Wellsburg; and many nieces and nephews.
