Annie worked as an executive secretary for the City of Anaheim, California for many years before retiring in Sun City, California. She moved for a short time back to Hays, Kansas before moving to Centennial, Colorado where she spent her remaining life with her sister Agnes’ family.


Per Annie’s request, there will be no memorial service and her ashes will be interned at the RiversideNationalCemetery in California next to her love, Mal.

God saw her getting tired,

A cure not meant to be,

So He put his arms around her,

And whispered…..“Come with Me.”
