Born July 20, 1937 in Phoenix, AZ to Mabel and Osborne Vance. Died March 29, 2020 in Elizabethtown, NY. She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 yrs, Bruce K Mitchell. She is survived by her sister Linda, 6 children: Lori, Kirk, Scott, David, Bruce & Dale and numerous grandchildren.
Annette loved her family and was renown for her gentleness, kindness and her generous heart towards all. She would be the first to tell you that those attributes originated from our Savior Jesus Christ who was her steady source of comfort and love.
She is a published author of two children's books as well as her autobiography. She produced many beautiful watercolor paintings and poems. She graduated summa cum laude in 1976 with a bachelor's degree in Psychology from SUNY college in Plattsburgh NY.
She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served valiantly in many church callings, a precious one of which was as a temple ordinance worker with her husband Bruce. For 16yrs they made the 4hr drive weekly to serve in the Montreal Temple of the church. Annette will always be remembered for her wonderful gift of teaching the gospel. When she stood and spoke, you could feel the power, hearts were pierced and we'd yearn to be faithful.
