She married her husband, James on December 18, 1943 and after the war, moved to a new home in Lanesborough where she spent the next 30 years raising her family. In 2007, Ann and Jim relocated to the Berkshires to a new home in Cheshire, next door to son, Michael and daughter-in-law, Ernestine Geary.
