She married the love of her life on November 22, 1942 and began the adventurous journey of life in the United States Air Force. Ann worked her entire adult life in business and miltary offices until she and Vade retired and moved to Corsicana in August of 1978 to be near family. They enjoyed many wonderful years of travel abroad and RVing across the United States during their retirement. Both were longtime members of Westminster Presbyterian Church.

Her special friends and the lovely staff at Sterling House have been part of Mrs. Harber's family for the past happy year and a half. Ann enjoyed her life of family, friends and days filled with reading book after book - a passion she enjoyed her entire life. Special thanks to Dr. Kent Rogers and his staff for their wonderful care and compassion.
