A native of Rockingham Co., she was the daughter of the late Auborn P. and Evelyn Carter Grogan. Annette was a graduate of Reidsville Sr. High School and Appalachian State University for both undergraduate and graduate studies. Married to her high school sweetheart, Michael, for over 42 years, they shared a love that was true, selfless and never-ending. After an early retirement from the City of Reidsville, she devoted herself to raising her sons, Matthew and Jordan. With her quick wit, infectious laugh and dimples, Annette was passionate about cooking and found great joy as a master gardener and a crafter. She often remarked that being a grandma was the best job as she embraced every moment with Carter and Auborn. Surviving is her husband; Michael Lynn of the home, son; Matthew Lynn (Terry) of Reidsville, son; Jordan Lynn of Dallas, Texas, grandsons; Carter Lynn and Auborn Lynn, brother; Pender Grogan (Connie), sisters; Sylvia Perkins, Vivian Woodruff (David) and Amy Baker (Johnny), mother in law; Shirley Lynn, sister in law; Vicki Lynn, several nieces, nephews and extended family; and her beloved pups; Lucy and Oliver. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by brother, Marshall Grogan and sister, Sarah Weeks. The family would like to thank Dr. Wesam Yauoub and the ICU staff at Moses Cone Hospital for their compassionate care.
