Anna Wadsworth Nasekos, 86, passed away on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, at Kitty Askins Hospice Center. Anna was born in Wayne County to the late William Atlas Wadsworth and Bessie Baker Wadsworth on September 10, 1936. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, two husbands, and three sisters.

After a long and fruitful career, Anna retired from O’Berry Center. With a servant’s heart, Anna went on to work as a caregiver for the elderly, as well as working in the cafeterias of North East Elementary and Charles B. Aycock High School.

Of utmost importance to her was Anna’s family. Whether sharing a meal, making a phone call, or sitting down for a good conversation, Anna’s most treasured times were spent with her loved ones close in hand and heart.
