Anna Duarte is currently recovering at Massachusetts General Hospital due to illness. Anna was a nurse at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital into her 80s and has continued to devote much of her time to helping others.

Her friend Trina Kingsbury said that Ms. Duarte exemplifies the saying that “if you love people, they love you back.” Ms. Duarte was named Miss Senior Citizen of Tisbury about 10 years ago.

For those wishing to visit, send a card or flowers (hint, she loves red roses), the address is Massachusetts General Hospital, 32 Fruit street, Boston, MA. 02114, Bigelow 14, Room 50A.
