FRIDAY, MAY 11, 2007 B7 REMEMBRANCES CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE ANNA JANE LUCAS Anna Jane Lucas, 66, Overland Park, Kansas passed away peacefully at her home on May 9th, 2007 following a brave battle with cancer. Anna was born in Kansas City, KS, the only daughter of Wilbur and Edith Wright. Anna went to St. Agnes high school in Kansas City, KS and then attended the College of St.

Teresa in Kansas City, MO. She received her Master of Arts degree in English Language and Literature from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. Many years were spent traveling and living overseas. As a collegian, she studied Dante and improved her Italian in Florence, Italy. She met Stephen Lucas at a student leadership conference, and in 1963, Anna traveled to Elizabethville, Congo to marry and had a son.

After a short stint in Lisbon, Portugal where her first daughter was born, she lived in France for several years where she studied French and art, and had her second daughter. In 1968, she moved her family to Dares Salaam, Tanzania where her third daughter was born. While residing in Tanzania, Anna modeled for Harper's Bazaar and taught literature and English at Pugu Secondary School. At Pugu she walked three miles each way to carry the bricks used to build the school and worked the school's fields that supplemented the cafeteria. She traveled widely throughout Europe and Africa, and visited China in 1974.

In 1975 she returned to her hometown of Overland Park. Anna began teaching eighth grade English at Nallwood Junior High. 1 Now a single mother, she also provided for her family by working second jobs for a number of years. She met and fell in love with Dan Haupt who loved her in sickness and in health. Anna and Dan shared a sense of humor, an affection for antiquing and browsing used bookstores, and a loving home.

Anna eventually moved to a teaching post at Shawnee Mission Northwest where she enjoyed many years of teaching until she retired in 2005. Anna was a loving and devoted mother. She nurtured her children with books, crafts, art supplies, and a lot of love. She inspired creativity and created a nurturing home wherever her family lived. A house filled with books and her children and grandchildren made her happy.

She was preceded in death by her father, Wilbur "Bill" Wright of Miami, OK and her mother, Edith Hunter, of Overland Park, KS. She is survived by her loving companion of thirty-one years, Dan Haupt; her four children, Stef Lucas, Menina Boyle, Jennifer Lucas and Amy Whitaker; and eleven much adored and cherished grandchildren, Madison Zephyr Lucas, Michael, Anna, Sarah, Jack Boyle, Jacob Rebecca Mauldin, and Lucas, Hannah Drew Whitaker.
