    To Annie’s family, our family is sending heartfelt thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. With Sympathy, Amy, James, Georgea and Grace Timberlake

  2. Beth & David McCall Says:

    Our prayers and love go to all Annie’s family. As you all knew her as mom or grandma, we knew her as a wonderful friend and travel companion. We have so many good memories of our time together, traveling across the United States. The patience and caring she showed with Gary in his final years was an example to all of us. We will remember getting up “early” during our caravans and rallies and find that Annie was already out with the dogs – and she looked so put together, she put the rest of us to same. She was such a loving person, she will not soon be forgotten.
