Ann was born on June 28, 1928, in Driscoll, ND, to her loving parents Pete and Mary Malsam. She spent her formative years in Driscoll, where she was raised and educated. After completing her schooling, she embarked on a fulfilling journey as a dedicated homemaker. Additionally, Ann took on part-time clerical work, lending her skills to various businesses in Bismarck.

Ann married the love of her life, Roger Meland, in 1951 at St. Hildegard's Church, Menoken, ND. Together they raised three children, Dean, Darla, and Donna.

In 1980, Ann and Roger relocated to McKenzie, where she became the proud owner of The Little Store. This establishment became her pride and joy, serving as a testament to her entrepreneurial spirit and unwavering commitment. Ann always enjoyed a game of cards and was especially eager to beat you at a game of gin rummy.

Ann is survived by her loving children, Dean (Wanda), Darla (John) O'Keefe, and Donna (Jerry) Speidel; grandchildren, Robert Meland, Courtney (Meland) Sprynczynatyk, Lucas Speidel, Whitney (Noah) Fliginger, Shane (Katie) O'Keefe, Jacy O'Keefe, and Jackson O'Keefe; great-grandchildren, Zoey, Greysen, Roger, June, Roland, Rocky, and Blake; and special friend Phyllis Rash.

She was preceded in death by her husband Roger, her parents, and eleven brothers and sisters.

All who cherish her memory and will carry her spirit forward.
