Anne farmed happily by her husband’s side in the Rocklyn area for 40 years. She liked to keep busy and knitting socks for others was one of her favourite pastimes. Anne and Harry spent many years camping with the Gypsy Campers and travelling around enjoying entertainment; they loved music and dancing. For 25 years, during the colder months, they would go south to Florida. Church was very important to Anne, and she loved catching up with family and friends.
