Annette (and Fred) have always been an inspiration of Faith and love for me. Annette fought a valiant fight. Throughout her years of dealing with her cancer she always somehow was a bright ray of sunshine and never showed any negativity that I can ever recall.
Annette your smile and positive outlook will always be a fond memory for me. You will be missed and I hope you are enjoying the delights of heaven with your children.

Annette had such great faith. She was an inspiration to everyone. My sympathy to Fred and her family during this difficult time. I worked with Annette for 30 years at GS. The love she had for the students and faculty was very evident. She always mentioned that each day was a blessing. And I shall never forget our travels to the Avon flea market. She loved shopping and her convertible!
