Annette Stern left this world on October 10, 2020, a month shy of her 98th birthday. She lived a long, colorful and loving life. Annette was born in The Bronx, NY which formed her very core of being, and where she met and married the love of her life. Annette was the adored wife of the late Simon Stern and a loving mother, grandma, aunt, best friend, and more.

Annette was an accomplished fashionista who greeted the world with a smile on her face and in well-coordinated outfits with plenty of sparkles. She could light up a room when she entered it and loved a good party, hearty laughs and games with her friends. Every day she would say “sit and have a cup of coffee with me”, often basking in the sunshine that she loved.

Annette leaves her daughters Helene and Renee, her son Harvey and was pre-deceased by her youngest daughter, Phyllis. She was a loving grandma, great-grandmother, aunt and friend. Her many friends and family members mourn her passing but cherish the times they spent with her. Annette will be missed by her friends at Chestnut Park in Boston and her Delray Beach group in Florida. She wanted to convey her heartfelt thanks to all of the wonderful caregivers she met over the past ten years in Boston for the loving attention they brought to her.

Annette leaves a legacy of love, warmth and friendship and she will be greatly missed.

May I express to the family my deepest and most sincere sympathy on the recent death of our beloved Annette! She was very well known and loved here at the Pines of Delray North and she will be missed by many of her friends and neighbors.
We will miss her daily smiles as she walked from her condo to the pool and spread her sunshine sharing uplifting remarks to all she spoke with along the way!
Annette was a very nice person and so kind to everyone here at the Pines in Delray and there was a definite void when she left us and moved North!
Whether we were at the beach with her granddaughter Joy or out listening to music in downtown Delray, she was always happy and willing to jump up on the dance floor and party!

She loved to be around people and we always had fun when Annette was present!
Her visits to my home at holidays or just for morning coffee, shall always be treasured by me!

We were good friends and I loved her spunk and zest for life!!! She was always uplifting to all and willing to help anyone!
I will always remember how she welcomed me here at the Pines when I moved in alone from Boston. She was a true friend and I have many enjoyable memories of Annette!
A smile will always come across my face when I remember Annette and that’s true of many residents here at the Pines.
