Annie was born in Centerville, Utah on December 8, 1867. She came with her parents to Woodruff when she was a small girl and received what education was available. She met Ty while she was working at the Wesley K Walton him, close neighbors to the Calls. They soon became sweethearts and were married in the fall of 1887 in the Logan L.D.S. Temple.

Ty bought some land east of town with his brothers. He bought his brothers out and built a home here. This is where he and Annie made their home and had all of their thirteen children. They began their family with a son, Thomas Josiah, named after his father but he was called Jodie all his life. Then came a little daughter, Alinza named after Ty's mother. Next came another son Oscar Myron. A little daughter Edna was born and lived only six weeks. Ada Rosetta was next, then Leon Harold, Annie Louise or Louie, LeRoy Dermont, George Francis, then a daughter Henrietta that also lived only six weeks. She was followed by Waiora Mar and then Zulah May and the last John Hazen who lived only three days. Nine of the children lived to marry and have families.

Annie was a good wife to Ty. She was quiet and timid. She supported Ty in all of his endeavors and had to act as both parents when Ty was away on the long trips around the Stake and while attending conferences in Salt Lake City. She was a devoted wife and mother in her home and was devout in her religion. If there was any success to be acclaimed by her husband or family she was responsibly for it. She wanted them all to have a good education, something she had never had. One of her most treasured past times was to go fishing with Mrs. Sara Cornia, the midwife and doctor of the town who delivered most of Annie's children.

She passed away in the early hours of July 17, 1941 at her home, 23 years and a few hours after her husband Ty. They are buried in the Woodruff Cemetery with five of their thirteen children.
