Annette was a wonderful person. A kind and gentle soul, she loved her church and did anything she could to help. There was never a time she didn't say hello when I passed by. I will remember her in my prayers and pray that the Lord will receive her with open arms and bless her with life eternal,where there is neither sickness nor sorrow nor sighing.
May God comfort her family during this time of sadness.
She will be greatly missed by all of us at St George. May her memory be eternal.

Annette was an Angel on earth. She was the godmother of both my children Wendy Renee walker lawrence and Nicholas brandon walker. She was the most fun person and generous to a fault. We loved her dearly.

Will always remember her smile. Always happy to have family around.
🌹As a little girl, watching her in awe waterski by the pier.
She loved me so much, making an awkward little shy girl, feel special. ğŸ’ž
Would always I could have beautiful blond hair like hers.⚘
And...I deeply loved her.
