Ann Hussey

April 7, 1949 — October 7, 2021

Ann Krueger Hussey, 72, died on Thursday, October 7th 2021, after a series of illnesses. Ann was delighted to say she was “made in Japan”, as she was born in Japan on April 7, 1949, to Herb and Eleanor Krueger. With a father as a career Army officer, Ann became a seasoned traveler in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States. Ann graduated from the Tehran American School in Iran in 1967, and then took a grand tour of Europe with a friend before returning to the States to attend Oklahoma State University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in history. She was a member of the Kappa Delta sorority. She began her long and distinguished career with the Department of Defense at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, teaching English as a Second Language. During her teaching career she traveled extensively to central and South America to familiarize herself with her students’ cultures and countries.

In 1981 Ann entered the Air Force History Program and performed in that role for the next 42 years in assignments at Lackland, Kelly, Kapaun, Ramstein, and Randolph. She had a great work ethic and was a talented researcher and writer. She received Air Force level awards for her 50th and 75th anniversary books on the history of Kelly AFB and the Clark House on Randolph AFB. In addition, she was a major contributor to many other publications such as another Air Force award winner, the History of Military Aviation in San Antonio. She reveled in documenting everything from flying sorties to efforts to save Kelly AFB from closure. Her professionalism and engaging personality won her many friends throughout the Air Force.

Ann married Martin Hussey in 1982 and embraced her role as a mother when her daughter Robin was born in Landstuhl, Germany in 1985 and when Martin’s son Jeff Hussey came to live with them in San Antonio in 1988. She was an involved and devoted mother and celebrated her life as a grandmother to Savannah, Cade, and Reed. At the office, nothing made her prouder than to show off her screen saver, pictures of her grandchildren. She was the typical doting grandmother, and the kids will miss “Grammy” very much.

Ann was a kind, loving, loyal, independent woman, grandmother, and friend throughout her life. She loved to travel, read, needlework and, later in life, developed a keen interest in quilting. One of her favorite activities was traveling to Houston every year with friends for a huge quilting show. While working in Germany, she often said the local economy improved when she and friends went shopping. She touched many lives and always left them richer and happier.

Ann is survived by her daughter Robin Schlittler, her son-in-law Cole, and their two sons Cade and Reed. She leaves behind her sons Scott Hussey, Jeff Hussey and his wife Marina and daughter Savannah, her brother Bill Krueger and his wife Norma, and a host of friends scattered around the world.

A memorial service will be held at the Schertz Funeral Home on Sunday, October 17,, 2021, at 10:00 o’clock. The service will also be live-streamed so her many friends unable to attend in person may also be part of the service.
