Following graduation she worked at the Inverness Memorial Hospital, the Victoria General Hospital, the Halifax Infirmary, and in later years at Alderwood Rest Home. Anna married Frank Nicholson in 1950. During their married years, Frank’s career with CBC resulted in their living in Bridgewater, Halifax, Toronto, St John’s and Sydney. In 1981, they moved back to their Baddeck roots and settled in Big Baddeck near the Nicholson family homestead. Anna was a lifelong member of the United Church of Canada and she was a member of the UCW, Hospice Board of Victoria County and the Arm of Gold Seniors Club.
