Annie united in holy matrimony to Ronald (Bonehead) Cagler on May 13, 2005. Annie Jean joined Pleasant Valley Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Donald Parker.  Annie was an affectionate, loving person who enjoyed family gatherings, fun, and laughter.  Her character was as strong as a lion (never displaying the agony of her struggle) and yet humble as a lamb.  Her hobbies included fishing and listening to music.

Green; her adoptive parents, Albert and Annie Mae Jones; her daughters, Carolyn Spires and Tammy Spires; and four brothers, J.C., Monroe, Evan, and Andre Green.
