Anne Anderson eventually moved to Vancouver. In 1923, she graduated from the University of British Columbia. The following year, she married Professor Henry Forbes Angus. She was a board member of the Vancouver Children's Aid Society (1940-1941 and 1945-1952) and was a prominent member of the Community Chest and Council of Greater Vancouver as well as founding member of the Children's Foundation.
