Beginning in 1963, and through to her retirement in 1980, Ann worked at the Chenango County Automobile Bureau, where she completed her service as the bureau’s supervisor.

On September 18, 1948, at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Ann married George J. Garofalo, who predeceased her on March 22, 2006, after 57 years of marriage.
