Born Lillian Marie Good (1929-1986) she was the daughter of Robert C. Good (1904-1967) and Rena Marie Myers (1904-1994) in Frankfort, Clinton County, Indiana. She got the nickname "Annie" because her brother Pete, who was just a few years older, could not pronounce "Lillian" correctly so it came out "Annie," and it stuck. Her siblings were Richard "Pete", Barbara Lou, Ronald Lee (Ronnie) and Patty Ann. Her early life was spent in Frankfort. During this time she attended Woodside Christian Church, but later she was an active member of The Evangelical United Brethren Church in Frankfort, which later became Hope United Methodist Church where she was a Sunday School teacher and sang in the choir.

In 1945 at the age of 16 she married Charles William "Tim" Perkins (1927-1975) who got his nickname from Tiny Tim in "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens that he loved so well. He was a certified electrician and spent most of his working years at the Swift & Company Soybean Plant in Frankfort. They bore two daughters in the 1940's, Sally Anne and Vicki Lee.

In the early 1950's, Annie worked as a clerk at Alden's Department Store in downtown Frankfort. In the 1960's, she worked as a babysitter in the little neighborhood where they lived which was dubbed "Hogville" which was just off of Highway 28 West that goes through Frankfort close to the Ingram-Richardson Company where Tim worked early on. In 1964, Annie became unexpectedly pregnant and had a son named Lincoln. Later, in the 70's, she worked as a cashier, cook, and waitress at the Frankfort Country Club.

At the untimely death of her husband Tim at age 48 to liver cancer in 1975, she moved from her house on 28 where her daughter Vicki moved in with her family, to a house on Clay Street in Frankfort. An old high school boyfriend, Charles "Sonny" Gant, read of her husband's death in the newspaper and after the death of his wife Norma, looked her up and began courting her again. He was a native of Frankfort as well. They were married in 1977 and she and Linc went to live with him in his home up in North Webster, Koskiusko County, Indiana with his kids who were still living at home. Her mother Rena, "Granny Good" went to live with them eventually as well, and was with her til the end.

Annie met an untimely death herself at the age of 57 in August of 1986 due to breast cancer. She is still sadly missed by her family. She unfortunately passed away before she got to meet her two granddaughters Taylor and Spencer who were born to her son Linc after her passing, but her four grandsons Tracy & Jason Schmittler and Jonas & Ryan Hastings will always remember her fondly as "Granny Annie" who was easy-going, laid-back, and loved as much as a mother and grandmother can love.

Her funeral was held at the Harris Funeral Home in North Webster, officiated by her lifelong and beloved minister, the Rev. O.B. Thomas who was the pastor at Hope United Methodist and also officiated at her second wedding. Annie was laid to rest in Mock Cemetery, North Webster, Indiana.
