John Cofield's Oxford And Ole Miss: Oxford's Annie Cook Answers Nancy Reagan's Call


OXFORD, MISSISSIPPI
Oxford’s Annie Cook answers first lady Nancy Reagan’s call. – Holly Renee posted: We all loved Mrs. Annie Cook. She took care of me a lot when I was little. I remember daddy taking me to her house to pick strawberries. My favorite “Miss Annie” story is, and I heard this myself when Momma and Daddy went to check on her, when we couldn’t get Miss Annie to answer her phone and hadn’t heard from her in a day or two, which was not normal. We loaded up to go to her house to check on her and found her on her roof, patching a hole. Daddy and Momma fussed and asked her why she didn’t let her son do that. Her reply was he was in his 70s and was too old to be doing things like that! Miss Annie was in her early 90s. She was an amazing lady!
