Breonna “Annie” Groce

Breonna “Annie” Groce, 16, from Albany, Kentucky had plans of joining the Army to serve her country. On April 25, 2018, she was on her way to school that morning when she went off the side of the road and then over corrected her vehicle. It rolled multiple times. Annie was not wearing her seat belt and was ejected. The vehicle then landed on top of her. She was only 2 miles from home. Her mother, Sarah Brummett says this of her daughter: “Annie was so very smart. She worked as a CNA (Certified Nurse Assistant) while also attending high school. She had her life planned out, but God had other plans. Annie loved God, life and her family. She was in JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps) and planning on going into the Army. God gave her to us for 16 years to love and we are grateful for that, but I miss her dearly.” Annie’s mother started the Doing It For Annie Foundation (DIFA Foundation) to honor her daughter and to spread seat belt awareness in her community.
