Born in Ponteix on December 4, 1953. She attended Ponteix School till her Grade 11 year, where she transferred to Swift Current Comprehensive School to finish off her 11 and 12. While there she also took a secretarial course.
She held many jobs in Ponteix, such as receptionist (20+ years) with Dr. Baretto, part time with her Mom - Lucille at the Sewing Centre and Variety Store, Ponteix Dollar store and fulltime farmer's wife and mother to her 3 children.
Her moto for living was Live, Laugh, Love. She completed these words everyday. LIVE Life to the fullest. Live with a positive attitude. Live a happy Life. LOVE. Love your Family. Love your neighbour. Love everyone equally. LAUGH Make every day a positive day. She was not a practical joker but would like a good laugh. She loved spending her time outdoors tending to her many flower and vegetable gardens, coffee with the ladies, reading her many magazines, watching tv and enjoying the great outdoors.
Annette volunteered many hours and years to the Ladies of the Parish in Ponteix, making meals for the many events or assisting with the clothes sale each year.
She will be missed by many that knew her. Her kind warm spirit will always be present in the memories we have. She lost a battle, but she showed us how to fight a good fight and stay positive to the ending. She was a fighter to the bitter end and gave everyone a good laugh in the last few days.
