Annie Horn was an excellent cook and could make almost anything, said her son, John Horn Jr.
“She made an excellent lasagna, and made a veggie lasagna that was good, too,” he said. “She was an excellent cook.”
Annie Horn, 74, of Valparaiso and South Haven, died Oct. 8. She worked as an assistant produce manager at Buy Low grocery store, South Haven. She also had been a nurse's aide at Mercy Hospital in Gary.
She as preceded in death by her husband, John F. Horn.
She was a member of the South Haven Kingdom Hall. Horn was active in her church, her son said, and would go out and teach others about her faith as long as her health permitted her to do so.
When her health failed her and she could no longer go to church, she would call into the special church line and listen to services, he said.
As her children grew up, she was involved in their sports. She also enjoyed fishing and was excellent at crafts.
She could quilt and did a variety of sewing and other craft activities, he said. She also donated money to a variety of charities, he said.
Her son said he admired the way she was always willing to help others in need.
“She wasn’t afraid to give the shirt off her back. She was always giving things away,” he said. “Mom was a pretty good woman.”
