Annie grew up in Sheridan, later making her life-time home in Noblesville. She was a member of the Moose Lodge for 42 years. Annie loved excitement and adventure, especially on her yearly trips to Kentucky and Tennessee. She loved dancing, playing cards and bingo, and visiting the casino. Annie loved to go, whether it was a drive around town or a trip across the country. Also known as Annie Pooh, she was a friend to many.
One of Annie's greatest legacies was that of being kind-hearted and a loyal friend. By never meeting a stranger, everyone was always welcome in Annie's home. She especially loved her family, and spoiling her grandchildren was a joy. She was particularly close to her oldest granddaughter, Jessica, who helped care for Annie, and her nephew, Matthew Prater, her right-hand man and best buddy. Annie's best-friend was her daughter, Bobbie, who she loved and cared for immensely, you seldom saw one without the other.
She will be deeply missed and will forever be loved by all who knew her. We will miss our Annie Pooh.
