The couple married on October 31, 1953 and their marriage was blessed with the birth of one son and two daughters.  The couple resided in LaSalle, Michigan for over forty-two years.

Anna and her family would gain their spiritual nourishment while attending St. John Catholic Church in Monroe, Michigan for many years.
