Annie was a busy body; enjoying yard sales or going with her daughter to work at Macon Helps. She liked talking to the customers and helping out when she could. Traveling with her children was a treat for her, but Annie wouldn't go unless the grandkids could go, too. She wouldn't go to Hawaii, because the grandkids weren't going. So they changed plans and went to Florida instead. Annie cherished her time with the grandkids. Her family was what she built her life around; and they will truly miss her.
