Annette was a supervisor as a Senior health aide at American Healthcare in Lisbon for many years. She had a great compassion and empathy for others. Family meant everything to Annette.

She most enjoyed the time she was able to spend with her grandchildren. She also took great pride in providing homecooked meals that were absolutely delicious and often bragged about. Her hobbies included cooking, gardening, arts, crafts, cleaning and being the event planner for family get- togethers and functions. Her favorite place to be, was soaking up the sun, on a nice warm day on the beach.  Annete continued showing compassion by giving the precious gift of life. Her organ donation was able to provide the gift of extending someone else’s life through the donation of her liver and kidneys, although her life was cut short.  We would like to thank the LifeBanc donor team for their compassion and support.
