Annette was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. What brought her the most joy were her children and grandchildren. Annette was always helping and taking care of people. She was best known for her kindness, sense of humour, wit and selflessness. She loved working in the garden and the smell of lavender. One of her favourite vacations was her yearly state side shopping trip with her best friends.
One of Moms final wishes was to remain at home with family and friends during the last few months after learning of her illness.Her strength and the love and devotion of daughters Pam and Judy and son Bruce for his many visits and kind and reassuring words. Her son-in-law Jean Marc, her personal chef as Mom called him. Her wish was fulfilled. Thank you and God bless.
The family would like to send a very special thank you to Dr. Aiden Carey for his kindness and insight and the Palliative and VON teams for their support at home. A heartfelt thank you to Annette’s best friend ever Dorothy McNeil for always being there.
