Obituary For Anna Josephine Huseboe

Anna Josephine Huseboe, age 17, passed from this life into the next on November 28, 2020 at home surrounded by those who love her.

Both a Wisconsin and North Carolina girl, Anna was born September 1, 2003 in Oshkosh, WI and moved with her family to Wake Forest, NC in 2012.

Anna leaves behind her loving and devoted parents, Colleen and Derek; brother, Evan; grandma, Bernadette Law, treasured goddaughter, Cassidy, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins who will miss her dearly. She is now united in Heaven with those who went before her: grandparents, John Huseboe, Sherry Huseboe, and James Law (and of course, her beloved dog, Maxine).

While Anna’s 17 years were far too short, she lived each of those years to their fullest. An honor student at Heritage High School, Anna loved learning whether studying in school or fine-tuning her soccer skills from YouTube. Anna loved the water. She was in her happy place when she was boating across Green Lake, WI or walking on the sand of Wrightsville Beach, NC. She loved playing games (especially a competitive round of Monopoly), singing along to the radio (she always knew every word), playing soccer, finding her inner self while painting, wearing her cheese head while watching the Green Bay Packers, eating her Momma’s cooking, and celebrating Christmas by selecting the perfect gift for someone she loved. Most importantly Anna loved her family and friends. She cherished the little moments, having family dinner, laughing or simply being together.

Anna was at the same time fierce, fun-loving, and generous. She possessed the unique combination of unyieldingly determination alongside a finely tuned empathy for others. Nothing showed those traits more clearly than the battle with cancer that she fought over the past 17 months. She mourned the things that cancer took from her, but she never stopped fighting. And even in the darkest moments she was focused on the family, friends, and caretakers around her.

To honor Anna, her family asks that you do things she made each of them promise over the last few months -- put one foot in front of the other, take care of each other, and find a way to laugh each day. In lieu of flowers, the family is in the process of setting up a charitable fund to donate to causes meaningful to Anna. Details will follow in the coming days.

Anna’s life will be celebrated in private memorial services in North Carolina and Wisconsin.
