They farmed north of Calmar until 1980, at which time they moved to their home in Calmar. Ann enjoyed gardening and had a “green thumb” with both inside and outside flowers. She also enjoyed playing cards, crocheting and embroidering. Ann and Francis loved dancing, 4th of July parties and traveling. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren meant the world to her and they enjoyed her famous Cheerio bars, apple crisp and raiding her candy dish.
