Annie retired from the Bellingham School District after 25 years. She enjoyed her retirement traveling, painting, gardening, volunteering, the last few years she enjoyed her backyard chickens. But her biggest joy was spending time with her family and friends.

  1. Annie was a bright light! She always had a kind word and smile for everyone and she will be greatly missed by those who knew her. My deepest sympathy to her family.

  2. We will miss “Grannie Annie’s” delightful laugh and her kindness. I will never forget the amazing batch of cinnamon rolls she delivered to our house when the boys were all recovering from the flu. We were blessed to have her as our neighbor for so many years.

  3. Annie was a member of the Assistance League of Bellingham, and was one of those of us who volunteer time in the Thrift Shop. She was a reliable member of the team until she became ill. She was always cheerful and helpful, and a delight to work with. We will miss her!!

    To Carol and all of your family,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Know that I am thinking of you and wish you peace and comfort as you go through this difficult time. I can’t know how you are feeling but I’ve gone through the loss of my parents and I remember well how I felt. I pray you will feel the love and caring of your friends, your mother’s friends, and your family in the next days and months.


  5. I was so sorry to hear about Annie’s passing, but knew she was not well. I am Bert and Willy’s daughter that would visit occasionally. Annie was such a wonderful person and had a great sense of humor. On my last visit, we discussed her chickens at length. She always brought something terrific to eat that she had prepared and had many things to talk about. I will really miss her. My condolences to her family.
