In 1942 she married Frederick Hartung, an elementary school principal and voice teacher. Anna took a part-time temporary job with the Red Feather (now United Way) as chief accountant. The job became full time permanent and she stayed for 18 years being promoted to office manager in 1949. She retired in December 1964.
