Obituary for Annette Lillian Stern (Gerstanzang)

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.
