They were blessed with five children. In 1962 they became members at St. Pius X Catholic Church. Anne volunteered at St. Elizabeth's Hospital for over 37 years. She enjoyed feeding the birds and watching them from her back deck, tending to her seasonal flowers, going on bus trips to casinos and cheering on her favorite team the Brewers. Anne loved traveling on the annual trip she took with her daughter Janet. Anne's family was her pride and joy. She loved spending time with them and going to the “buffet” for lunch.

Further survived by other relatives and dear friends. She was preceded in death by Lloyd in 1994, one brother: Willard DeKleyn and one grandson-in-law: Fred Verdi.
