We can only stand and gaze and bow our hearts in humble submission to the will for Him who doeth all things well. For we must all go someday, one by one.

She was the sixth of twelve children born to their union. Annie confessed Christ at an early age. She joined Saint Paul AME Church in Akron, OH under the leadership of Rev.

Annie was a graduate of Prentice High School. She was a great cook, bead and pillow maker and loved reading and puzzles. Her specialty was quilt making for family and friends.  Annie had a deep passion for family and friends. Her smile was the light of every family gathering. Her sense of humor leaves memories that will only make you laugh and smile.
