Born on June 14, 1956 in Fayetteville, she was the daughter of the late Roberta Pauline and William “Bill” Thomas Durrett.
Annie was loved by her family, friends, pets and patients. She began her 37 years serving others as an RN following her graduation in 1977 from West Virginia Institute of Technology.

Annie was an elder in the Presbyterian Church. She sang in the choir at her church and with the Fayetteville Community Choir. She was a member of the Fayetteville Rotary Club and will be remembered by all whom she served with her advice, love and helping hands.
Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Charles Allen “Charlie” Durrett.
