Anne graduated from New Brunswick High School in 1946. She graduated with a Diploma plus Certificate in Bookkeeping.

After the war, Anne worked at Rutgers University helping returning WWII Veterans enroll through the GI Bill. While working at Rutgers University, she completed an Accounting Course. During this time, she met and married Robert Vanzile Oliver.

For over fifty-one years they lived their love story. Living first in New Jersey, where they raised their two children; Robert (b. 1950) and Anne Marie (b. 1960). As she raised her children, Anne continued to be a working woman; taking pride in jobs at St. Peter's Hospital, Berman Company, the YWCA, and Planned Parenthood as an accountant. During this time, she continued her education through Rutgers University, completing a Business Management course, furthering her career in Accounting. Anne and Robert eventually retired to Maryland to be close to their children and their families. She never slowed down in retirement. Anne took a part-time job, that led to her being the Comptroller for Fluron.
