Annette was born in Waycross, Georgia on October 30, 1939 to the late James and Lollie Beverly. She made eternal covenants to John Lee Clark in November, 1957.

After the passing of her husband, she moved to Bristol, FL to be near her daughters.
Annette (Mimi) loved her family. She doted on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved for the entire family to gather together. She welcomed everyone, was full of charm, and always genteel. She was often found cooking anything and everything her family loves to eat and everyone loved to eat anything she whipped up. Her favorite pastimes included trips to the beach with her loved ones and watching Gone with the Wind. She was the epitome of a southern lady and always wore her lipstick and a big smile.
