Ann was born in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania on December 25, 1927  and was proud to be  Christmas baby! She was introduced to her husband, Bill, by her brother Warren.  They exchanged letters for 3 years before marrying on April 22, 1950, and moving to Chicago where Ann became a switchboard operator.  Subsequently, she and her husband moved to Columbus where she was a stay at home mom, lovingly raising her three children.  In later years, she and Bill both worked for Budget Rental Car, where they enjoyed driving together to various locations. 

Ann loved cruising, traveling to Hawaii, Europe, Central America, and so many other places.  She was an avid euchre player and dog lover who was also known to enjoy a good glass of wine!
