She enjoyed nothing more than a great party, a good book, the latest movie, and games with family and friends. More than anything, Annie’s grandchildren were the light of her life. Special thanks to all of Annie’s family and friends who were there to support her through her cancer battle over the past year. She loved each and every one of you.
