Anna Mae farmed alongside her husband, Donald, on their dairy and hog farm until 1993 when they retired and moved to Cuba City. They raised six children. Anna Mae always had a large garden and especially enjoyed eating the fruits of her garden. She enjoyed playing a good game of euchre or 500 and teaching the next generations the love of playing cards. She also enjoyed crocheting and embroidery, but her true love was spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was also a volunteer at the Cuba City Meal Site.
