After graduating from Winfield High School, Ann attended the University of Iowa for a nursing degree. She worked in several hospitals as a registered nurse for about 20 years, moving every three years with Mike in the United States Air Force. Later she studied for a master’s degree in Public Health Nursing at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. She finished a 50-year career as a public health nurse in San Antonio. This included many years as a school nurse at Thorton Elementary School in San Antonio. She loved her job there - especially the children. When she retired, she received recognition for her years of dedicated and caring service to the students and staff of Northside Independent School District.
Ann was a long-time member of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in San Antonio where she sang in the choir for about 30 years. Later Mike and Ann joined the First Presbyterian Church in Kerrville where they have worshiped for almost 20 years. She loved to participate in short term mission trips which included travel to Mexico, Africa, Guatemala, and Haiti.
