Herman was an elementary school teacher and Anne took care of children and kept the home warm with lovely smells of delicious cooking and baking and much laughter. Anne and Herman loved travelling and exploring, be it parks and beaches nearby or longer trips around BC or Canada. In later years they enjoyed cruising, and were able to visit many exotic and interesting places. Travelling also included visiting children and grandchildren to celebrate milestones. Music was an integral part of Anne's life and also family life.
