Annie received her education at Adamsville High School in McColl, SC. Annie married her High School sweetheart, Charles McCall, in 1968 in McColl, SC. Shortly after marriage they moved to Brooklyn, New York where they had two children: Stacey and April. Annie was a vivacious person who loved her family immensely. She was known for putting others first ahead of herself, that meant not just her husband and children, but her entire extended family. She was very close to her sisters, Peggy and Julia. They had a sisterly love that was unbeatable. Annie loved to cook and entertain. She would hold family gatherings at her home in Laurinburg, North Carolina for holidays and special occasions. In honor of her mother, Oree, Annie was an avid gardener. She traveled extensively with her husband and family. She was a fun loving person who had a spirit as bright as her colorful wardrobe and infectious smile that would light up the room. While living in New York City, she and Charles attended Salem Missionary Baptist Church. After working in NYC for many years, Annie and Charles retired and relocated back to North Carolina and settled in Raleigh where they attended and became members of First Baptist Church on Wilmington Street.
