Anna M. Young-Soles

July 19, 1967 — May 1, 2023

Anna Marie Young-Soles was born July 19, 1967 and was in Jehovah’s arms on May 1, 2023.

Born and raised in Santa Cruz, California, she graduated from Santa Cruz High School in 1985. A long-time employee of Longs Drug Store, she was loved by customers and co-workers for her caring, generous, and fun spirit.

Anna’s favorite saying was “Let’s get this party started”, and she was indeed, the life of the party! She loved music and she loved to dance. Michael Jackson and Chris Brown were among her favorites, but you knew better than to get her started about Chris Brown! Krystyna’s favorite memory of attending a Chris Brown concert (even though she wasn’t a big fan), was the joy of being with Anna and sharing in her excitement.

Anna loved sports, especially going to baseball games when her brother, Glenallen Hill, played for the MLB. She was so kind and generous that during our garage sale a young guy said “Wow, I love your Jersey you are wearing”, and she said, “Here, it’s yours” and took the Jersey off her back and gave it to him - that’s the kind of person Anna was!

What Anna loved most in life, however, was her family and her dogs. She met the love of her life, Derek Soles, in 2007, married in 2008, and they spent years loving together until her death.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Felton and Francile Hill.

Anna leaves her family to mourn her passing, husband, Derek Soles; son, Marcus Lankford and daughter, Angelika Young; sisters, Ollie Ruth Hill, Deborah Hill-Alston (Alexander); Ira Jones, and Debra Rose Jones; brothers, Felton Hill Jr. (Cassandra), Earl Hill, and Glenallen Hill (Lori); grandchildren, Markaisha and Milani Lankford; aunts, Helen Clay, Shirley McCoy (james), Gladys Givens, Minnie Caldwell (Ken) and Caroline Anderson; uncles, Randy Mcduffie and Larry Mcduffie; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. II Timothy 4:7
