Book of Condolences

Brian MainstoneUncle Dennis and Aunt Annette would just pop in to our house every once in a while and we'd just sit and talk for hours. That is something my wife and I will miss.c
Mark and Judy OlackeThe Olacke family is saddened by Annette's passing. We enjoyed the many times together on Manitoulin as Annette and family spent most July months at Campsite #1 in Stanley Park which sits next to our place. Annette provided love and support for her family and friends. We will miss the dinners out at Garden Gate and Red Lodge where many a fine time was had. The shores of Lake Mindemoya were blessed with one Special lady indeed and will forever remember her. HUGS to all.
Cindy Fisher ( Wallace )Dennis and Annette would often surprise me with a visit at work after getting her hair done, looking like a million dollars and a smile as big as can be I will miss those times for sure and will cherish them forever Cindy
Stephanie Aunt Annette will live forever in our hearts. XOXO
Debbie TaylorMy deepest sympathies Pam and Sterling on the passing of your mom. I remember the last time I saw her and her smile. She was planning on going to Manitoulin and having family there of course. So many happy times over the years that we hold as dear memories. Debbie
Paul and Teresa TratnyekWe are grateful for Aunt Annette and Uncle Dennis witnessing their great love for each other and family. Aunt Annette's humour, kindness, care for others and hospitality, especially during my university days in London, were pure gifts. I remember calling when I got my first apartment there and asking Aunt Annette how to cook a roast. The roasts were never as tasty and tender as hers. We have been blessed by her life and give thanks.
Bill NashMy condolences to my good friend Warren and the family. May she rest in peace.
