Ann worked for many years at the old Hallmark Plant. In 1964 she moved to Waynesville, Missouri to be by her sister. There she worked at the Ben Franklin store and was known as the candy lady. At that time the candy was in display bins and had to be weighed on a scale for the amount the customer wanted. She also made cotton candy on the paper tubing for children and it would get in her beautiful auburn hair.
She then went to work in Civil Service at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. She worked in the Admission office at General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital.
