Annette was not only my cousin but a dear friend and my Florida family. I moved to Naples Fl. from Indiana in 1985 and Annette followed in 1986. So many wonderful memories including Annette, Jean, me, and family taking the pontoon boat to Marco Island for lunch. We weren't experienced boaters but we stayed close to shore and always made it home. I will always cherish our time togerther and will miss my Florida family.

I’m, Glenda, Jean Rawson’s sister. I had the privilege of knowing Annette almost as long as Jean did. Annette was such a dear, sweet, kind soul with a great sense of humor and laugh and a beautiful voice. It wasn’t long before all of the Rawson family and the Kocal family were greats friends. She was like family to to all of our family. Our parents loved her like another daughter. She celebrated birthdays, weddings, vacations, trips, holidays, and so many wonderful times with some or all of us. She even sang at our Father’s funeral. My husband Horace and I really enjoyed our trips to Florida and Chicago, and we loved sharing the Christmas holidays with Annette in our home in Mississippi. We loved her dogs too. When we all gathered for Christmas, we had five dogs and one, two, or three cats. What fun we had. I love you and will miss you, Annette, my other sister, I thank God that He made you a part of our family too. We are all better for it. ???Glenda Rawson Lester

Annette was a bright light; a kind and gentle soul with a quick wit and a great sense of humor. We will always remember her laugh, her smile, her love of basketball and sports, her love of gardening and orchids, playing piano and singing with Oliver, her love and devotion to Tinker and Windy, and her schemes and plans for the next piece of real estate to buy. We have such fond memories that we treasure! Annette, you are at peace now singing with choirs of angels and enjoying your favorite glass of Colby red. Love you forever! Love and peace to your family and friends, Kat, Bob, Mary Kate, Caroline, and Courtney Kronzer
