After college Ann moved to Walsenburg, Colorado where she taught first grade for several years. Eventually, Ann moved back closer to her parents in Longmont, where she met and married her husband Jeffrey G. Krieg in October of 1984. They welcomed their only child, a daughter, Elizabeth in April of 1985.
Ann loved animals and adopted many dogs, cats, birds, and fish over her years, while also taking in and caring for strays which somehow always found their way to her door. She enjoyed to sing, swim, write, and spend time outside gardening. Ann was also a woman of tremendous faith who enjoyed reading the gospel, attending bible study, volunteering and teaching Sunday School. Ann was a member of several congregations in Longmont over the years, including Life Bridge Christian and Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
