Anna worked as a manager in a major retail chain early in her life, until she decided to devote her entire time to her family. She was a completely all-in engaged wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Even as Anna aged, she was involved in her grandson’s life and became known to many kids in the Freeburg area as “Naw”. Her love and ability to light up a room carried through her life.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 60 years, William L. Tourville, whom she married on December 17, 1960; her parents; a sister, Margaret Knecht; and a brother, Bobby Joe.
Surviving are her loving daughter, Patty (John) Slocomb of Freeburg, IL; her devoted grandson, Steffan Slocomb and his girlfriend Heather Gain of Freeburg, IL; two sisters, Mary Lee Hooper and Kim Merchant of Collinsville, IL; three brothers, Tom (Kathy) Voyles of Greenville, David (Barbara) of Wayne City, and James Voyles of Alton; countless nieces and nephews; and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
We are grateful for the time that Anna was ours as a mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and friend.

Anna will be laid to rest at Lake View Memorial Gardens, Fairview Heights, IL, next to her beloved Bill.
