Annabell had a love for painting, ceramics, doll making, cake decorating, genealogy, gardening and scrapbooking. Her talents were endless. Her beautiful quilting projects will be treasured by all who have received them. Her precise attention to detail was present in each and every creative endeavor. Above all, Annabell loved her family. The joy her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren brought her was evident at each family gathering. Annabell hosted holidays well into her 80’s, with her home serving as the gathering spot for all those she loved, and all those that loved her in return. Her quiet compassion and warmth was felt the moment you were in her presence.
