Annie worked at several retail establishments and retired from her primary employer, Lincoln Financial Group (formerly Jefferson Pilot), in 1990 after working tirelessly for 29 years.

    Mrs. Annie will be miss. She took care of me as her own while I was in college at NC A&T Univ. Her love was so comforting I always knew I had an angel watching over me. Now she just has her wing. Love you and I will miss you.
