Who is Annie Hinsche?: Carl Wilson's Ex-wife

Annie Hinsche is the former wife of the late American musician who co-founded the Beach Boys, Carl Wilson, and the sister of Billy Hinsche, a sideman of the Beach Boys band.

How old is Annie Hinsche?

Annie Hinsche was born on December 27th, 1949, in Manila, in the Philippines, a country in southeastern Asia. As of 2023, she is 74 years old. She was the first of two children born to Celia Bautista, her mother, and Otto “Doc” Hinsche, her father, who owned a local casino. Annie had a little brother called Billy Hinsche and he is currently seventy-nine (79) years old. 

Although born in the Philippines, Annie’s father was a white man, from New Jersey, in the United States of America, and her mother was a Filipina from the Philippines. After living in her birth country for a while, Annie’s family relocated to the United States and settled in Beverly Hills. While in the U.S., Annie studied at Loyola High School with her brother, where he met Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Dean Paul Martin.

Annie was beautiful during her youth, with dark hair and pretty brown eyes. She is currently known as Annie Hinsche-Wilson-Karges due to her marriages. Her first husband was Carl Wilson (m. 1966–1982), with whom she had two children. Her primary residence is in Santa Monica, California.

November 20th, 2021, could be considered one of the saddest days of Annie’s life as she lost two valuable people. Her brother, Billy, died after a short battle with lung cancer in her home, and her mother, Celia Hinsche, also died on the same day in her house.

Annie Hinsche has been married twice

Annie has been married twice in her life. The first marriage was to the founder of the Beach Boy band, Carl Wilson, in 1966. The duo has yet to make the public aware of how they met or when but it can be assumed that since Annie’s brother, Billy, was a sideman of Carl’s band, the duo might have met through him.

Annie and Carl had two children during their marriage which lasted only sixteen years. Their children were Justyn C. Wilson and Jonah D. Wilson. Jonah was the first child. He was born in 1969 and is currently fifty-four (54) years old. Justyn, their daughter and last child together, was born in 1971 and is presently fifty-two (52) years old.

Annie Hinsche was having issues in her marriage to Carl, and so in 1978, the couple split up, not filing for a divorce. Unfortunately, they could not patch things up and save the marriage, and so on October 8th, 1982, the duo got a divorce, permanently terminating their marriage.

Some years after her divorce from Carl, Annie remarried. She married Terry Lee Karges, an automobile person whose most recent profession was President for Bios Organic Cosmetics, Inc, in 2008. Terry Lee was born on March 28th, 1945.

Annie Hinsche’s ex-husband: Carl Wilson

Carl Dean Wilson, the late American musician who co-founded the Beach Boy, was born on December 21st, 1946. Carl Dean was born in Hawthorne, California, in the United States of America, and was the last born of Audree Neva and Murry Gage Wilson. He was the three boys and had no sister. 

He admitted to having loved music for as long as he could remember. He used to practice harmony vocals under the guidance of his brother Brian, who often sang in the family music room with his mother and brothers when he was barely a teenager. His inspiration was the country star, Spade Cooley. He idolized the man so much that when he was about 12 years, he asked his parents to get him a guitar to start playing with. 

In early 1997, Carl was diagnosed with lung cancer in his vacation home in Hawaii. However, that did not deter him from playing and singing with the Beach Boys throughout their entire summer tour till its completion in the autumn of 1997. He died a year later, on February 6th, 1998, two months after his mother died, and was laid to rest at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.
