Anna Helen Kosco was born in Hollywood, Pennsylvania on 3 May 1892. On 10 November 1914, she married John Yourishin and the couple resided in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. We know that she could read and write English.

Anne lived at 879 N. James Street in Hazleton. Sometime before 1929, she was living at 887 N. James. I am not clear if the family moved or if the streets were renumbered. By 1942, she had a telephone. The number was 1772.

Anna died in Hazleton on 30 July 1946.
