Annette was a loving Wife, Mother and Grandmother. Her love for her family was the most important thing in her life. Things remembered by her family is how hard she worked to keep the household running smooth. Not only did she work a full time job as a Banking Supervisor for Long Island Savings Bank in New York, she took care of her husband and children. They were always first in her life. Her husband and children remember a few things in particular. One was when they were sick, she never left them alone and she made homemade french fried potatoes. Another was post office picnics and she would wake up at 5am to make southern fried chicken. These are a few if their memories... When her Grandchildren were born she stepped in and became a major role in their life. Never did she miss a sporting event her grandsons were playing in or a recital her granddaughter danced in. She created a bond with her children and grandchildren that no one could break. They were the loves of her life.

She was a woman with compassion. If someone was in need, she was there to help. Family members, friends and strangers would always say how loving and caring she was. A woman who never created trouble, was there fixed the problem. In a nutshell, she was an angel here on earth and will be missed by many. She will never be forgotten because she built a legacy of her own. From her husband to her children and grandchildren no other woman will be missed or loved more than Annette Ferrante.

In lieu of sending flowers, the family asks that you make a small donation to the Alzheimers Association, it is a terrible disease and we need to find a way of finding a cure.
