Anne was born on March 9, 1921 in Owensboro, Kentucky, to James and Katherine (Andermatt) Schoonover. She married Maurice W. Nugent on Feb. 12, 1945. He preceded her in death.

She also assisted her husband in the family business, Nugent Dairy Farms. She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Parish.

Anne was an avid duplicate bridge player and, along with her husband and sister, Martha, traveled widely playing in tournaments. She achieved the status of life master and club director. She was a talented artist and loved giving artwork to relatives and friends. She also contributed her paintings for church fundraisers. She enjoyed hosting family and friends and was a faithful friend to many.

Anne (also known as Booie to close friends and family) was a devoted and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who was deeply loved by her family. She was blessed with a wonderful and long life.
