Annie Myers Ott, age 99, passed away on February 20, 2021. Annie was feisty and a little mischievous. She was very loving while also being sharp as a tack and tough as nails. She was born and spent her childhood in Cades Cove before it became apart of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (moving to Rockford after the park was formed). She was a long-time employee of Hamilton National Bank and retired from First Tennessee National Bank. She always had Boston terriers and loved mowing her yard (even at 98).
