Our hearts go out to John and Jack at the passing of their Mom.

She was a terrific lady that meant the world to her family and was loved by many,.

My special recollection of Annelle was that she was always there for me from the time I was a troubled teenage boy to as an adult, always just being just a phone call away. I always enjoyed our time together and now that we live in Indiana, she was one of the top locations to visit when we came to Oklahoma.

We loved her and will miss her. RIP Annelle
