In 1997 Anna, and her husband Harold travelled back to the Eastern Oklahoma, Western Arkansas area to visit family, and research Anna's Native American ancestry. They decided to stay, and eventually purchased a home in Heavener, Oklahoma where they lived most the rest of their lives. Anna was of the Christian faith, and attended Heavener First Baptist Church. Until recent years, she and her husband often shared their faith with others riding motorcycles together out on the road with the Christian Motorcycles Association. They always welcomed others into their home, and enjoyed visiting with friends over coffee at local cafe's.

Anna Loved her family, and attending family reunions. She was well known for her Fried Chicken, and home made Potato Salad. Most of all Ann was known for her love, faith, and kind heart towards all she met.
