Annette and I had been friends for nearly 40 years, beginning with our summers at Camp Farnsworth. Still in shock. Miss her so much.

Wow. I had no idea. I am truly saddened by this news. Annette taught me so much. We traveled to Provence together and I had the good fortu e of attending several of her workshops in Vermont. She used to travel to NYC for me to cut her hair. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have had her in my life.Although we didnt speak often, I will miss her very very much. What a huge loss!.
oh dear Annette, rest in peace.

I was fortunate enough to be an intern with Annette. She was an amazing woman who gave so much to so many. I will miss her deeply.

How sad to lose someone who gave so much to others.

I was just one of Annette’s many long-time students, and like many others she taught, I credit her for my second career as a working artist. What she gave to the many lives she touched is unmeasurable and unforgettable. Woodstock and the Upper Valley have lost one of their brightest lights.

May Annette rest in peace. At least she is no longer suffering. She gave much to Woodstock and much to many more. I will remember her at Curves. She would come in with Cyrus and we all would exercise. She was always friendly. Even though I live in Colchester now, I still will miss her and Cyrus around the area.
