Anne is the daughter of Lawrence Lane and Frances Lane. She was born on November 20th 1930 in Carroll, Iowa. On August 6, 1955,
Anne married Howard Patrick Roush at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Tucson, Arizona. Anne and Howard lived an adventurous and wonderful life together, that included raising their five children in Alaska, Hawaii, and Arizona. As a young woman, Anne graduated as a Diploma Nurse from Mercy Hospital of Nursing in Des Moines, Iowa in 1951. Anne's curiosity and strong passion for knowledge did not stop there. In 1953, she received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, from Saint Louis University; and she pursued a Master of Social Work from the University of Hawaii, graduating in 1968. Anne's career in both Nursing and Psychiatric Social Work was always secondary to raising her family, and being a wife. Anne was a woman who was always "ahead of their time". Her family was blessed to have an intelligent, talented, witty, and very special Mother, Grandma, and Great-grandma, (also known as Grannie Annie). She will be missed by all of us.
