She was baptised on August 15, 1819, and she married Jens Jacob Hansen (1823-1864) on December 14, 1845 in Farsund, Norway. Together Jens and Anna had the following children: Hans Kristian Jensen (1844-?); Hans Gabriel Jensen (1846-?) born May 12, 1846 and baptised May 21, 1846; Anton Severin Jensen (1849-1906) b.

Anna Marie (Kjarvaldsen) after her husband's death came to America in 1882 and passed away six years later, aged 63 years, having previously embraced the Methodist faith.' The family appears in the 1865 Norway Census living in Farsund on Vestregade Street in a house owned by Jens J. Hansen. Ann is a widow and living with the following children: Hans Kristian Jensen; Hans Gabriel Jensen; Anton S. Jensen; Juliane A. Jensen; Anne M. Jensen; Johanne K. Jensen; Jens J. Jensen; Andreas Jensen; and Johan K. Jensen. Anna died on August 29, 1888 at her home at 25 Pleasant Place in Chicago of 'exhaustion from carcinoma of uterus', she had been sick for three years. Her Illinois death certificate number is '4936'. She is buried at Mount Olive Cemetery in Chicago.
