She was the daughter of Edward and Lou “Emma” (Wolfenbarger) Reffitt. Anna was the youngest of 13 children. Anna’s mother, Emma, inherited eight children at age 18 from a deadly flu epidemic that killed her siblings, and left their children orphaned. Emma embraced the challenge as a single mother, even while losing her eye sight because she worked in the crop fields with measles. She married Edward at the age of 30, and bore five children of her own to include two sons and three daughters; the youngest was Anna. Anna’s mother was 40 years old when she had Anna. Anna’s travels growing up from rural Kentucky to Indianapolis, Ind., and finally to Springfield, with her first husband were a constant tribute to determination and courage, and an inspiration to her for her later travels abroad. Anna always had an interest in business and her record proved her business savvy. Anna was named the “top exporter” by Governor Ashcroft in 1986 and “exporter of the year” by the Small Business Association. Anna was heavily involved in the Business and Professional Women’s Organization. Anna also enjoyed traveling the world and frequently mentioned that her fear of being alone in a strange land was overcome by her faith and knowledge of God’s presence throughout her worldwide travels. Survivors include: Two grandchildren, John Gasaway and wife Andrea “Kelly,” Springfield, and Michael Gasaway and wife Jennifer, Sioux City, Iowa; four great-grandchildren, Andrew and Ethan, Springfield; Carli and Adelaide, Sioux City, Iowa. Anna was fortunate enough to have two great loves in her lifetime:  The first, John Gasaway, husband of 33 years, father of David and Terry Michael, Grandfather of John Thomas and Michael Boyd Gasaway.  Anna married her second husband (Waitman P. “Scotty” Scott) in 1976 and although his life was shortened by cancer, their love was destined to be eternal. Three other children she raised in her home, Patricia Gold, Springfield, Charles Reffitt, Oak Harbour, Wash., and Kenneth Reffitt, Springfield; two very special God daughters, Kay Brock and Jan Naegler. Ann had countless nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, cousins and second cousins scattered throughout the country. Anna was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings, husbands John Sr. and W.P. Scott, infant son Terry Michael and beloved son David.
