Ann met the love of her life, Clarence H. “Buddy” McQuagge, in Shreveport and they were married June 3, 1967, in Natchitoches. Buddy worked for the oil industry and his career carried them to Scotland where they lived for 15 years.

She maintained their homes in Scotland and Shreveport.

Although she never had children of her own, Ann loved being around them, showering them with affection and gifts.  She enjoyed taking care of her home and loved her neighbors.
