Collection Historical Note

Anna Kropf Ropp (1904-2005) was a graduate of the Mennonite Hospital School of Nursing in Bloomington, Illinois. Raised in Missouri, Ropp left home in 1927 and gained experience prior to entering nursing school. After her graduation in 1931, Ropp worked as a private duty nurse and later as a relief day supervisor at Mennonite Hospital. Once her professional day was complete, Ropp went home to her family farm where she continued working by raising her family and tending farm chores. Known for her eye for detail, Ropp wrote every day in a diary where she recorded notes about nursing, farm life, local community news, weather, family news, etc. Ropp retired in the 1970's but volunteered as a charter member of the BroMenn Service Auxiliary into her late 90's. Ropp passed away on June 9th, 2005.
