She was born on August 7, 1871 in Dundee, Scotland as Anna Thompson. In 1896 she married Horace Elgin Dodge, Sr., of Dodge Brothers Company . The couple had a son, Horace Elgin Dodge, Jr., and a daughter, Delphine Dodge. After her husband died (only 11 months after his brother and Dodge-cofounder John Francis Dodge died), she became a substantial owner of Dodge. She and John's widow Matilda sold the company in 1926 for US $146 million ($1,944,928,571 as of 2014), to Dillon, Read & Co., at the time, the largest cash transaction in history.
