Jim and I were so shocked to learn of Annette's passing. We've only known you a short time but considered yo both dear friends. We were supposed to have dinner together in February when I had my heart attack. My condolences to her family and to you, Doug, her companion and life partner. Linda and Jim

My memories are of a forever young and vital woman who spent her days taking care of both her family and everyone else’s at her workplace. Her children, their partners and grandchildren are proof that she did much “ right “ during her lifetime. My heartfelt love to all. May her memory be for a blessing. Love, Jo (Rosenfeld)

To the Elbaum family and Doug - My sincerest sympathy to your family over the loss of your beloved mother, grandmother and friend. I met Annette through Doug and we always looked forward to our dinners on Lake Champlain. Annette was so proud of her family and we could have talked for hours. -May she rest in peace.
