January 29, 1916 - August 4, 2014

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 WoodwardBoth good friends.
Both now back together for eternity."

Annette was a teacher of East Detroit Public Schools for over 40 years
retiring at the age of 72. 
She loved to travel, shop, and spend time with
her family and friends. 
Annette had a special place in her heart for Paris. 
She paid her own way through college during the Great Depression 
and worked at the Pentagon during the war. 
She was an independent, hard working, and an inspirational woman 
who broke barriers and pushed the boundaries of the times. 
Annette experienced life to the fullest and 
made a difference in people’s lives. 
She is loved and missed by all.
