Annette Garris, age 72, of Pinson, AL was born on October 28, 1950, in Tuscaloosa to her parents, Arthur George and Claudia George Williams. Annette’s birthday wish was to see her late husband, “Dick”. On October 28, 2022, after an extended illness, her birthday wish came true.
Annette was a devoted wife to her loving husband of 40 years, William Richard “Dick” Garris, and loved her stepchildren as her own. She was a proud Nana to her grandchildren and her great grandson.
