       Anna L. Clendaniel, age 88 of Chesterton, IN, passed away peacefully on October 26, 2020.  She was born on March 19, 1932 in Canonsburg, PA to John and Julia (Sedlitsky) Sopiak, both of whom preceded her in death. 
       On June 28, 1952 in Canonsburg, PA, she married the love of her life, Thomas “Gene” Clendaniel, who preceded her in death on August 23, 2019.
       She is survived by her loving sons: Leslie (Theresa) Clendaniel of Portage, IN, David (Dee) Clendaniel of Lake Station, IN, Douglas (Kathy) Clendaniel of Chesterton, IN and Edward (Billie Childress) Clendaniel of LaPorte, IN; by her 9 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and by her 6 great-great grandchildren. Anna was very proud of her 5 generation family.  She is also survived by her siblings, John (Betty) Sopiak of Canonsburg, PA and Patricia Delfine of Canonsburg, PA; her brother-in-law, Clyde (Kay) Clendaniel of Florida; and by her many nieces and nephews. 
       She was also preceded in death by her daughter, Joyce Ann Jones on February 26, 2017 and by her sister, Mary Jane Guidas. 
       Anna was a member of St. John’s United Church in Chesterton.  She loved spending her free time at home, taking care of her family.  She was an awesome mother and made Mrs. Cleaver look imperfect.
She never knew a stranger and could easily feed her entire neighborhood.
