Annette White Behnke went to be with her Lord and Savior on November 24, 2016, Thanksgiving Day four days shy of her 94 birthday.



Born on November 28, 1922 she was a daughter of the late George Henry and Genevieve Raabe White. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 61 years, Edwin.

She will also be sorely missed by a host of other relatives and friends.



Even in her later years Annette enjoyed her relationship with God through his Word, putting together 1000 piece puzzles, playing gin rummy, and watching the “tele.” She enjoyed a quality of life that pleased her and her family.
