Anne Mette Madsen was born April 25, 1867 in Big Cottonwood, Salt Lake County, Utah. She was the first daughter of Hans Peter Madsen and Anne Mette Ericksen and was named after her mother. To avoid confusion, she was known as Annie. Her siblings are Hans Peter Jr. (1864), Christina (1869), Mathew (1871), Serena Cathrine (1873), Charles (1875) and Zina (1878). When Annie was two or three years old, her family moved to Willard, Utah and that is where she grew up. Her future husband, Omer Samuel Call, was also from Willard. They were married December 31, 1884, in the Logan Temple in Logan, Utah. They moved to Rigby, Idaho along with other members of both of their families, to get new farm land and establish a town. Living conditions were rough and to begin with, they had to camp and sleep in their wagon until they could build something a little better. For the first two years they would go back to Willard for the winter and get needed supplies. They were true pioneers. Annie worked right along with her husband helping to clear the land and working hard to get things to grow. They were also instrumental in building a canal that brought water to the land. Annie and Omer became the parents of eleven children: Sarah Annie (1886-1917), Omer Matthew, (1888-1972), Sylvester (1891-1984), Irene Pearl (1893-1979), Heber Leslie (1895-1919), Floyd (1897-1970), Cyrus Bernard (1899-1974),George Charles (1902-1970), Delta Rhea (1904-2001), Delbert Fremont (1907-1982) and Lavina (1910-1979). Annie took good care of her family and was very industrious. She had a beautiful home and yard which she worked hard to take care of. She raised a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and made good use of them in her home cooking. Annie Call died unexpectedly on June 22, 1941 in Rigby, Idaho. At her death, the Rigby Star reported: "Mrs Annie M. Call, 71, an early pioneer of this section passed away at the family home here in Rigby, Sunday morning at 9:55. Her death came as a shock and complete surprise to members of her family as she had recently returned from a visit to her old home at Willard, Utah and had spent Saturday visiting at the home of her children here in Rigby. During her 55 years of residence in this section, Mrs. Call has endeared herself to her many friends and neighbors, who have appreciated her deep sense of loyalty, true friendship and devotion to her family. She was known to many as 'Grandma Call'. During her lifetime, she was active in the various organizations of the LDS church, serving as the first president of the Y.L.M.I.A. of the First Ward and was active until recently, in the Relief Society and the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. Mr. and Mrs. Call moved to Idaho in the spring of 1885, homesteading on a tract on the north side of what is now the city of Rigby, where they resided the remainder of their lifetime." Annie was buried in the Rigby Pioneer Cemetery next to Omer.
