FROSTBURG- Anna Elizabeth (Fatkin) Hitchins entered into her long awaited Heavenly home, on April 18th, surrounded by her family and Pastor, at the Frostburg Village Nursing Home. Anna was born at home in Loartown to the late Mary Francis (Blubaugh) Fatkin and John McFarland (Johnny Mac) Fatkin. Anna attended a one room school in Loartown. She worked at the Celanese Plant, and the NYA in Lonaconing during the second World War. She was a member of the Vale Summit UMC for many years. Her greatest joy was her family. Anna Loved to keep her house spotless (no wrinkles) and she loved to cook and bake. No one ever left her house hungry, If you didn’t take seconds she was insulted. Her specialty was Apple Pie and her famous divinity cream candy (white candy). We always looked forward to a roll of candy at Christmas.
