Annette attended Alabama A & M University for several years but completed her college education at Cheyney University in Cheyney, Pennsylvania, where she received a B.S Ed.
After leaving Alabama A & M, she moved to New York City with her sister Barbara Faye Rhynes Key. There she met the love of her life, George Wallace, Jr. The two of them later joined in holy matrimony. To this union were born two children, a daughter, Tracy F. Wallace and a son, Mark R. Wallace.
