   Anna J. Borntreger, of Hartly, passed away peacefully, Monday, September 12, 2022, In Bayhealth/ Sussex Campus, surrounded by her loving family. She was 74.

    Anna was born March 7, 1948 in Dover, DE to the late Jonas & Lydia(Miller) Hershberger.

   She had worked at Faulkners Store, and Legars I.G.A, before owning the Store in Petersburg. In her later years, Anna was a caregiver to many in their homes.

She could smile with her eyes, and was affectionately known as "mom" to many.

   Anna was one of 12 siblings, David, Sam, Esther, Atlee, Menno, Rosa, Alvin, Malvin, Calvin, Lester, and Jonas, Jr.
