As a young woman, Annabelle grew up helping tend the ranch. After graduating Buffalo High School at 16 years young, she attended business college in Great Falls, Montana. After graduating she went to work for Stanolin Oil Company in Midwest, Wyoming. This is where she met her future husband, James Linder Green. They married on June 14, 1947 in Buffalo, Wyoming. They had two daughters, Linda and Mary Ann. Husband Jim was a timekeeper for many sports both in Wyoming and Oklahoma and Annabelle and the girls were right there with him. Annabelle continued to enjoy OU basketball, football, and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Annabelle and Jim volunteered for twenty years with the Tulsa Red Cross delivering blood all over the State of Oklahoma to those in need.
After her husband passed, Annabelle moved to Norman in 2002 to be closer to her family. In her later years, Annabelle enjoyed listening to books on tape and attending First Christian Church.
