Anna R. Deister-Middaugh, 78, of Houston Lake, MO passed away Friday, January 31, 2014 at her home. She was born March 16, 1935 in Ashtabula, OH to Joseph and Susie (Novak) Yudin.

Anna was of the Catholic faith and former member of St. Therese Parish.

Survivors include her children, Kim Deister-McMillian (Mike) of Parkville, MO, Teri Deister of Houston Lake, MO, and Bryan Deister of Kansas City, MO; seven grandchildren, Kirby, Cory, Andrew, Brittany, Kiya, Brandan and Jessica; two great grandchildren, Alex and Sydney; a niece, Donetta Harmon; and nephew, Dana Keith May.
