Annette was born to the late George Franklin Watson, Sr. and Kathryn Williams Watson in Canton, MS on September 22, 1956. Annette had a sweet, gentle and loving spirit who never met a stranger; in her younger life, she loved to dance and entertain. As she grew older, she still enjoyed being the center of attention. She loved to visit with those she loved whether it was family or her friends at Winona Manor.

She worked at Willowood Developmental Center until her mother retired when she decided she wanted to retire, also, to be at home with her. Annette played in several hand bell choirs including The Mustard Seed Hand Bell Choir with whom she performed at the 1984 World’s Fair in New Orleans, LA. Annette also loved sports. She has participated in the Special Olympics several times in the softball throw and track events winning many ribbons and metals.
