She lived with her family on their farm near Hoople, ND until the death of her mother in 1933. Ann, along with two brothers, moved to Chicago, IL to live with their sister, Doris Hultin. As a teenager, Ann worked at the Marshall Field’s Department store in the Oak Grill room, as a waitress. She loved this job and made friendships with two customers that remained lifelong friends. Ann married Arthur Schroeder in 1945 in Chicago, IL. They moved to Lawton, ND and later to Lakota, ND where they farmed. Ann loved the farm and planted hundreds of trees and later grew beautiful flowers.
