Printed photograph of Anna (previously called Hannah) Trumpehofsky Siskin (the original portrait is located in the Siskin Education Building in Chattanooga). Wife of Robert Siskin and mother of Sarah, Mose, and Garrison Siskin. She was born in Lithuania and married Robert in the 1890s. They immigrated to America and started their family in Chattanooga. The speculated reason for this is Anna already had family in the city. Throughout her life, she suffered chronic respiratory problems and on November 27, 1930 she died from bronchial asthma.
