Anna graduated from the High School of the Visual and Performing Arts with an art degree. Some of her earliest careers were with Southwestern Bell, she became a respected Television Producer, and was a driver at AutoZone/Master Drive. In her later years, she became a certified truck driver for Swift and lastly a limo driver. Anna truly loved her books, coffee, missy the cat, music, art, family, friends and driving to new places. She was never one to be boxed in. She grew up in the heat of Texas but really enjoyed the cool brisk air of the Colorado Mountains. She never wanted any one to cry at her funeral. Instead, she wished that we rejoice knowing that she went Home to rest in peace.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Amparo and Willie F. Sanches; and her older brother, Joseph W.Rizo Sanches.
She is survived by her daughter, Felicia husband Shane Guinther; Son, Steven Ybarra, wife Talitha; her younger brother John Vincent Sanches Sr. and wife Teresa; sister Elizabeth Sanches Hamilton and husband Gabriel Castro; grandchildren: Victoria, Derek, Phoebe, Drake and Daniel; nieces and nephews: Cynthia and Ray Guerrero , Lisa M Sanches & Jimmy Gibson, Joe Anthony Sanches, Nikki and JR Aguero, Veronica Sanches , Sabrina and Ruben Ochoa, Christina and Abel Hoffman , Esther and Nick Robinson , Anna and Rich Pecina , BB Sanches and Stephanie, Michael J. Hamilton; as well as many great nieces, great nephews, and cousins.
We will be honoring her with a Celebration of Life on Friday, August 21st, 2020 at 1 p.m. at Northern Colorado Crematory, 700 8th St, Greeley, CO 80631.
