She was the valedictorian at Pine Hill High School and went on to receive her Bachelor's Degree in Education from Livingston State College. She began her teaching career at West Pensacola Elementary in 1962. At West Pensacola, she was a 3rd grade and primary resource teacher for over 30 years until her retirement in 1991, at which time she was named Escambia County Employee of the Year. After her retirement, she served as the volunteer coordinator at West Pensacola and then Blue Angel Elementary. She was an active member of her beloved sorority, Alpha Delta Kappa (ADK), where she served in many leadership positions.

Annie Jean loved life and loved her family. She loved to laugh, travel, make crafts, teach and mentor others. She had an inquiring mind and never sat still for very long. Her compassionate and giving spirit was demonstrated by the time and hours of service she so willingly gave to others. She will be truly missed.
