Loving wife of the late Sonny Eliot for 50 years. "Annette and Sonny were the epitome of best friends during their half-century of marriage. Taking care of her after a stroke was a labor of love for Sonny, who left us almost two years ago. Remember how they both entertained us during the Thanksgiving Day parade along Woodward? Both good friends. Both now back together for eternity." Greg Neubacher on Facebook Annette was a teacher of East Detroit Public Schools for over 40 years retiring at the age of 72.
