Eventually settling in Solon, Ann graduated from Solon High School as co-valedictorian of her class, and studied at Thayer Hospital in Waterville, becoming a Medical Laboratory Technician. She started working at Stephens Memorial Hospital, where she stayed until her retirement. Ann met Bruce Edwards when a coworker of his bet he didn’t dare to ask her on a date. They were married for 57 years until he passed away.
