Trudy Annette Blanchett, 65, Colorado City, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on Thursday, February 13, 2020 in the Mitchell County Hospital. She was born on December 13, 1954 in Houston, Texas to Hugh Washington Beeman and Clara Belle Dickey Beeman. Annette was a woman who always put her family above all else, and many in the area knew her for her many years spent as a local Antique Dealer. She loved her children with all of her heart, but then when her grandchildren started coming it seemed like she grew a second heart and found her true calling, which was being a proactive grandma. Until Annette’s health got to her she attended every function her grandchildren had, be it sports, birthday parties, or just going out to have fun, she was their biggest fan and they could count on her being faithfully by their side. After getting sick she spent a lot of time at the Mitchell County Hospital where she met so many nice people, who she said enriched her experience there, growing especially fond of Chip. Those that knew her will baste in the memories of her sometimes crazy, completely off the wall, quirky, sense of humor, as being around her would keep them laughing for hours. Her bubbly talkative nature made it so that she never met a stranger, and so that to know her was to love her. In her spare time Annette enjoyed spending countless hours on her phone, usually calling her son-in-law Doug because he always picked up. She was also obsessed with shopping. She was the type of woman that would make a day trip out of going to Walmart, and spend what seemed like an eternity in the hospital gift shop when she couldn’t leave the hospital. This passion for shopping was so strong that she even got banned from returning items at a popular retail shop. Her warm personality and the love she shared with the many people she met in her lifetime will be cherished for years to come, and she will be truly missed by those that loved her. Annette is survived by her daughters Lynette Blanchett Rich and husband Stacy of Westbrook and Athena Koch and husband Doug also of Westbrook, by her grandchildren Hunter, Cole, Kyle, Tanner, Kalee, Kendall, Reagan, Kirsten, Tamara, Eli, M’Lynn, as well as by 2 bonus grandkids Brinley and Andrew and by a great-grandchild Coby, and the one that is on the way, Gracelyn Mae. She is also survived by her brother Larry Beeman and wife Celia of Pflugerville, by her fur baby Sully a.k.a. Bubba Blanchett, and by her best friend Tommy. A memorial service for Annette will be held at a later date In lieu of flowers the family has asked that those wishing could make a donation in her name to the American Cancer Society or to Arrangements have been entrusted to Kiker Seale Funeral Home
