Ann worked for years at the U.S. Post Office in Albion as a clerk, hired by her Father, who was then Postmaster. This was during WW II when she filled in for the men who went off to war. After the birth of her eight children, Ann returned to the Post Office and retired after suffering injuries from the 1985 Albion tornado. After the tornado and the destruction of the home where she was born, raised, and raised her children, she and her husband relocated to Fairview.
