About Annette Dinwoodey

Annette Richardson Dinwoodey (February 17, 1906 – January 21, 2007) was an American radio singer and centenarian. She sang with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir from 1971 to 1973.

She was born in Farmington, Utah to Alamanda Bradford Richardson (1847-1921) and Linnie Gregory (1874-1955). Her father was a Presbyterian minister and her mother was one of the first to be baptized a member of the LDS Church in northeastern Texas. Her father was a distant relative to the Lee family, including Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Annette married Clinton Mills Dinwoodey (1901-1997) on 21 December 1928 and had two children, Anna Lou Dinwoodey Jenkins (1930-2004) and James Clinton Dinwoodey (1936-1994), both of whom are deceased.

Annette was a vocalist in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and sang at Carnegie Hall and the Salt Lake Tabernacle. She performed for a large portion of her adult life. She sang on KSL Radio from 1930 to 1945.

She began researching her family history at a young age, and later published a volume of books called "Our Virginia and Tennessee Paternal Ancestors: Richardson, Lee, Teel, Martin, Caffery, and Warren".

Dinwoodey lived in Salt Lake City, Utah and passed away just one month shy of her 101st birthday.
