Annabelle enjoyed many years as owner of AB’s Antiques & Things. She was thankful for the many friends made during her business years. She loved her family, dancing and Hawaii where she will be laid to rest.
Our family wants to thank our brother, Lyle who cared for mother in her later years supporting her desire to remain in her home.
