After being widowed in 1990 she met and married Tim Acomb of Los Alamos, NM. Not only did she and Tim get married once, they got married twice, to make sure it stuck.

The second time on December 13, 1992 in Annet’s hometown of Tahlequah, OK. This one being the traditional church wedding that Annet desired. After getting married she and her two children, Emily and Josh Akin, relocated to Los Alamos.
