Shortly after World War II ended she moved to Honolulu to help with the processing of troops returning from the Pacific Theater.

She was an active member of Saint Pius X Church in Manoa for many years. She is predeceased by her husband Herbert and son John and is survived by sons Keith (Catherine), Dennis (Gail), Paul (Doris), David (Sharene), and Steven (Amy) and six grandchildren: Robert, Naomi, Jeffrey, Andrew, Tyson, and Kimi. Anne’s children and grandchildren were her pride and joy. She was a warm and gracious lady whose smile will live on in our hearts. Private graveside services will be held.
