Biographical notes: Annie arrived in the Northern Territory in 1927 as part of the Australia Aborigines’ Mission. Her first position was at Harding Soak, north of Alice Springs, where she worked alone. Drought forced her to move to Katherine in 1928. By 1929 she was working at Ryan’s Well station until 1930 when the station owner asked to her to leave. She then travelled by buggy to Boxer Creek in the Murchison Range where she stayed and worked until 1932. This place became known as "Anne Loch Waterhole". In 1933 she returned to South Australia. Annie took another long buggy trip driving from Crystal Brook to Ooldea where she pioneered a mission in 1936. In 1937 she met and married U.A.M. Johansen travelling and working with him at Eyre Peninsula where he was the minister. She devoted thirty-four years to nursing, feeding and clothing Aborigines, providing them with spiritual instruction along with educating and caring for their children. On the 10th February 1943 at Cleve she died of pneumonia and was buried in the local cemetery. Source: Catherine Bishop.
