She married William Halama August 16, 1969 in Fond du Lac. Ann loved her family and enjoyed reading, sitting outside on beautiful days, talking smart, referencing her college dictionary, avoiding photos and serious conversations, and watching TV with no volume. She was one of a kind and will be sorely missed.

She was preceded in death by her parents. Funeral services will be held at 7:00 p.m. Sunday, May 22, 2016 at Edison Funeral Home, Independence, with Very Rev. Woodrow H. Pace officiating.
