Annie Beth Mobley Abney graduated from the University of Georgia with an A.B.J. in journalism in 1956 and a masters' degree in history in 1957. She married George Morris Abney, a University of Georgia professor, in 1959. Mrs. Abney was a writer of note whose articles appeared in a number of state and national magazines. She was once president of the Athens Historical Quarterly.
