Obituary for Dorothy E. Annett

Dorothy Eileen Annett died August 18, 2008, at the Pioneer Nursing Home in Luck, WI. She was 94. Dorothy was born in Shell Lake, WI, on April 5, 1914. She was raised on a small farm on Viola Lake by her widowed mother, Mary Bennett; her three sisters, Harriet (Hanson), Maude (Meyer), Ruth; and her brother, Ernest, all now deceased. Dorothy attended Webster High School, and after one additional year of Normal School training began teaching in one room, grade 1-8, schools. She married Leslie Annett in 1941, and after a brief period of farming near Centuria, they moved to the village of Frederic in 1944. After raising her family Dorothy returned to college and to teaching in Frederic where she taught elementary and junior high school until she retired in 1977. Northwestern Wisconsin is peppered with her students who to some degree owe their grammatical skills to her tireless efforts. Dorothy was a mainstay of the Trade lake Baptist Church for over six decades. Her faith and commitment to others was the bedrock of her beliefs. Her family and wonderful circle of friends defined her full life. Dorothy was preceded in death by Leslie, her husband of 57 years. She is survived by her daughter, Virginia (Lester) Bergstrom of Frederic; her sons, Larry (Linda) of Chippewa Falls and Paul (Deborah) of Wayzata, MN; 7 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; several relatives and many friends. Funeral services were held at the Trade Lake Baptist Church on Thursday, August 21, at 11:00 with the Reverends Cope and McDaniel officiating. Burial was at the Maple Grove Cemetery in Frederic. Rowe Funeral Home of Frederic, WI, was entrusted with arrangements. For information call 715-327-4475.
