Annie was born on May 28, 1935, in Tvrsice, Czechoslovakia, to Frantisek and Rosa (Quoika) Kriesl. She was raised in Czechoslovakia, attending school there. Following her school years, Annie moved to Germany, where she met Edward Otto, a handsome American soldier, and the couple wed in Germany. Their first four children were born while Ed was stationed there, and in 1964, after his honorable discharge, the family moved to the US, making their home in Malta until 1967, where they had two children and then moved to Havre.

Annie was a hard-working mother, as she ran a home daycare while the children were young, and after they were at school full-time, working for Coca-Cola as a bottler in the plant. She then worked as a housekeeper for the hospital and for private individuals for many years until she injured her back and could no longer work. During retirement, she cared for her grandchildren and spent as much time as she could with her husband Ed.

Annie enjoyed crocheting, caring for her flowers, and showering her grandchildren with love. She enjoyed reading to them, cooking for her family, and loved baking for the holidays. She always had cookies around and was always cooking, even if you weren't hungry. Mom enjoyed playing the machines, watching game shows on TV and spending time with family and friends, also teaching the grand kids how to cook and bake.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ed Otto; parents, Frantisek and Rosa Kriesl; and her siblings Anton Kriesl and Magdalena Wendisch.

Annie is survived by her sons, Mike (Bobbie) Colee of Gibson, LA, Pete (Cheryl Fischer) Otto of Havre, and Ron (Vicki Lockman) Otto of Lakeside; daughters, Elisabeth (Ed Codden) Goulet of Havre, Suzi (Steve) Ekness of Brady, and Diann (Jay Davis) Otto of Kelso, WA; nine grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; sisters Waltraud Manl and Erika Kriesl of Germany; and numerous nieces and nephews.
