Annie was a loving, strong, witty individual who marched to the beat of her own drum. Annie had the unique ability to connect with everyone and did not know a stranger! She loved people, was able to make all those around her feel welcome and cared for. Annie loved the Wagner Farm, was the custodian of the Wagner family heritage and maintained that connection through the years. She loved to ride horses, take her grandchildren camping and entertain friends on the Wagner Farm. Annie loved campfires, music and dancing and that is how she will be remembered.
