ANNA C. TREADMAN, 103 year young, passed away peacefully at the home of her son, Jack Treadman, Thursday evening, February 24, 2005. Remarkably aware and engaged with her world to the the last, Anna claims now the promise of Easter and eternity in the company of many loved ones.She was born, October 16, 1901, in Coal City, IL, the daughter of John and Margaret (Morosso) Anselmo. On June 21, 1902, she was united in marriage to Earl Edward Treadman in Joliet, IL.Earl was a sheet metal fabricator by trade but he and Anna later opened Earl’s Tavern in Joliet, a family place where Earl and Anna’s family grew up working together.Anna and Earl were hard workers and in 1940, they began a semi-retirement which allowed them to live six months each year in Florida. For some years they made their winter home in North Miami Beach and later in Naples or in Phoenix, AZ.While in Florida, Anna took up oil painting. It was a hobby that would become the passion of her later years. She painted dozens of landscapes and gave them all away to family and friends. Those beautiful paintings greeted her warmly when her family brought all of their paintings to display for her 100th birthday at Fisherman’s Inn near Elburn. Anna also loved playing cards. Bridge, Pinochle and Euchre were her favorites but no matter the game, there was no doubt, Anna was a competitor.
