    My sister, Sharon, resides at Phoenix House. I watched Annette interact with Sharon and others there and saw the very real love she had for those under her care.

  13. I’m so very sorry to learn of Annette’s passing….I only met her once in person, but she and her team served both my mom and dad and their home health needs. What an attentive nurse, certain and concise, with the patient care as her primary focus. You, and your attention and thoughtful heart will always be remembered, Annette. Rest In Peace ….

  14. Annette was a beautiful lady and wonderful helper who took care of my father for several years. She had such a precious heart to take care of those in their last season of life. She shared about Tara with such great pride. In those years Tara was running a sandwich shop I believe. Peace and love to Annette’s family.
