Anna was born in Tamuning, Guam to her parents Gregorio Guerrero Mendiola and Rita Mansapit Mendiola on June 10, 1960. She attended J.P. Torres Elementary School in Santa Rita, Guam, Agat Junior High in Agat, Guam, and George Washington High School in Mangilao, Guam. After completing high school Anna met the love of her life Brent O. Hodges and they were united in marriage on November 23, 1983 in Santa Rita Guam. They were married for 37 years and lived in Guam, California, and Oklahoma together throughout their marriage. Anna was a very hardworking and single-minded individual. With these two personality traits there was nothing she could not accomplish. She was a lifelong Catholic, and her love for the church and in God was apparent in everything she did. Anna was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and sister. Her family was everything to her and she loved them with a passion that very few could understand.
