Anna married Ralph M. Grimes in Delaware County, Iowa on December 19th, 1870 according to records found online.
In the obit it says 1880. Also I think it's a typo with the city, should be Burlingame, not Burlingham, California.

copied from newspaper obit:

Mrs. R.M. Grimes passed away Monday, February 7th at a hospital in San Francisco. She had been failing in health for two months, and was taken to the hospital about three weeks ago from her home in Burlingham, California. Anna Knee was born in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania December 24th, 1849, moving with her parents to Iowa when very young. Colesburg was her home until she became the wife of R.M. Grimes, October 19th, 1880 when they re-moved to Pine Bluffs, Wyoming, later to Kearney, Nebraska and then to the present home. Nine children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Grimes, three of whom preceded the mother in death. She is survived by the husband and three daughters and three sons,
Bessie Robinson
Daisy Daniels
Jennie Ogden
and Messrs.
Joseph Grimes
Harry Grimes
Maurice Grimes.
Mr. and Mrs. Grimes paid a visit to friends and relatives here in 1919.
