Annabelle Harriet (Koebrick) Grimm, the daughter of William and Lenora (Hoeft) Koebrick, was born April 8, 1924 at a farmhouse in Chickasaw County near Bassett, Iowa. She was educated in rural schools and graduated from Charles City High School in 1942. Annabelle received a six week scholarship from Farm Bureau and 4-H to attend Iowa State University, an achievement of which she was always proud.

Annabelle married James Grimm at the Little Brown Church in Nashua on August 15, 1943. The couple made their home in rural Colwell before moving to the Koebrick family farm in Mitchell County near New Haven in 1950. Annabelle and James farmed together for over 50 years milking Holsteins and raising hogs. Following James' death on June 19, 2004, Annabelle moved to Charles City.

Annabelle received her LPN and was employed at Floyd County Medical Center from 1972 to 1996. She was a member of Saint John Evangelical Lutheran Church, Mitchell County 4-H during High School, WBA, Hospice, East Cedar Club and Retired Floyd County Medical Center Employees.

Annabelle enjoyed making quilts, scrapbooking, sewing, mending jeans, gardening, cooking, canning and traveling throughout the United States and to other countries. She loved spending time with all of her family, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Living family members include her children: Beverly (Robert) Friend of Charles City, Jeanne (Jim) Loomer of Greene, LeRoy (Sue) Grimm of Mesa, Arizona, Kathy Grimm-Kimm of Charles City, Richard (Theresa) Grimm of Osage, Robert (Shelley) Grimm of New Haven, Julie (Lawrence) Foth of Osage and Janelle (Bill) Nuehring of Rockwell; two daughters-in-law: Judy Grimm of Elma and Carol Grimm of Osage; 23 grandchildren; 35 great-grandchildren; three sisters: Carol Chestek, Wilma Handt and Gladys Kellogg all of Charles City; two brothers: Wesley Koebrick of Charles City and Russel (Sue) Koebrick of St. Paul, Minnesota; along with numerous nieces, nephews, other family members and countless friends.
