Anne married Russell Adams and they farmed in various locations settling near Drinkwater in 1947. She operated a roadside café at Drinkwater for several years until 1983 when she officially retired in Drinkwater where she spent many years gardening and enjoying the friendships of many. In 2002 she moved to Briercrest with her Grandson, Russ and enjoyed four years of church activities, going to the rink for Friday night suppers and her favourite pastime of playing Bridge with the group at the Briercrest Community Centre. In 2006 her health failed to the point where she had to move to a permanent care home. She chose the Coteau Range Manor at Avonlea and enjoyed the good care and fellowship there for sixteen months before her death. Many people in the community contributed to her well being by driving her to the many social activities in Briercrest.
