Resigned to a life at the Rovers, she concentrated on making a success of it while improving her social standing, although her pretensions more often than not led to despair at the behaviour and general demeanour of the less refined members of her clientele. After Jack’s death, Annie found it increasingly difficult to cope with her responsibilities at the Rovers. She remained in charge thanks mostly to having friends within senior management of the brewery, but in 1984 she decided she’d had enough and went to live with Joan in Derby. Anne was educated at Clitheroe Council School but learned far more from her mother, from whom she inherited her social pretensions and a disdain for some elements of the working classes. She was, after all, a woman of a more sophisticated breed, interested in art and culture.
On 7th April 1930, Anne’s torment ended when her mother inherited a successful ice cream factory upon the death of her aunt. The last of the Clitheroe Beaumonts then traded their hometown for Weatherfield to run the factory and shop. With her career now on the right path, Anne turned her attention to finding a suitable husband. After some soul searching – and breaking some hearts – Anne began courting her cousin Edwin Beaumont. One day, while admiring the dyed water in the canal from her favourite bridge, Annie aroused the attentions of one Jack Walker as he pushed his cart of wool to the dye rooms at Possitt’s Dye Works. Seeing Annie leaning over the bridge, Jack thought she was about to take the route of so many victims of the Depression, and ran over to pull her back. Annie and Jack were married on 23rd October 1937 at Mount Zion Baptist Chapel and they began their married life in Ashdale Road.
