Anna Nagel was born on January 14, 1923 at Linton, North Dakota. She was the daughter of the late Anselm and Monika (Ternes) Sehn. She was raised on a farm west of Linton. She received her first eight years of education in the Emmons County School District, then Linton High School and graduated from Ellendale Teachers College. She taught in a rural school west of Linton for three years. During the summers she worked at J.C. Penney until she married Leo Nagel on June 3, 1947.
In 1958 they moved to Bismarck where she worked part-time for the Sakakawea Girl Scout Council for 17 years. She was also a volunteer leader in Cub Scouts, Brownies, and Girl Scouts.
When she retired, she volunteered at the Heritage Center, St. Vincent's, St. Alexius and RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Persons). She was also a member of the Corpus Christi St. Francis Women's Guild where she served in a variety of officer positions. Later she joined the Catholic Daughters.
Ann enjoyed meeting people, was comfortable in all social situations and was the epitome of hospitableness. She loved to dance, play pinochle and bridge and was a great traveling companion with her husband Leo when he attended national meetings and conventions. She loved people and could easily engage in conversation with anyone. Together they belonged to a Germans from Russia singing group that performed around the local area, singing in both English and German. After her husband's death, she eventually moved to Chapel Hill, NC where she resided in an assisted care facility.
Ann had a great love for her husband Leo, her children and grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband Leo, her second child, Mary, who died at birth, her parents Anselm and Monika Sehn, her sisters Floretta (Pius) Glass, Maggie (Joe) Jangula, and Rose (Joe) Burgad).
