Banana as she was known by her family, was a genuine and loyal person with an unwavering love for anyone she met. She was also very funny, caring and strong willed. You couldn’t go anywhere without Annie knowing someone. Her love of horses spoke volumes. She enjoyed mealtime, and a beer from time to time. Her favorite pastimes included swimming with her friend Terri, doing puzzles and coloring, spending time at her grandparent’s farm in Waymart PA, watching the Mets or Yankees (depended on her mood who she loved that day), the Jets, WWE Wrestling, spending time outdoors, and her all-time favorite thing, MUSIC!! You would often find Annie in her younger years strumming her tennis racket guitar, singing her favorite songs, or carrying her boombox. She had a passion for her jewelry, and for her nails to be painted. Her family meant the world to her. She loved them as they did her, unconditionally.
