December 22, 1965 – June 12, 2020
ONCE UPON A TIME…..There was a woman named Annette. She put on a brave face everyday, but the truth is that she felt everything very deeply. She was an incredibly sensitive person and she cared for the ones she loved more than anyone could even imagine.
Annette Shields passed away peacefully on June 12, 2020 and is now resting peacefully in the hands of her Savior our Lord. She is survived and will be deeply missed by her Son Dylan; Mother Ida Zernickel; Sister Angela (Randall); Tess (Wendel); Niece Amanda (Bryan); Nephew Eric (Kalie); Great Nephew Hudson and a Great Nephew to be born August 2020 that will never have the great fortune to get to know their Tante Netta.
Her two Cats Little and Tiger will miss their feeding with her and the special scratches that they loved so much.
Annette was predeceased by her father Alfred Zernickel on July, 2010.
The family would like to very much thank Dylan’s father Terry Shields for his patience, compassion and assistance during this difficult time.
Annette was born in Edmonton & grew up in Chilliwack. She graduated from Chilliwack Senior in 1983 before moving to Vancouver to begin her career as a legal secretary. After 10 years in Vancouver she took the opportunity to move to Los Angeles where she lived and experienced California life (beaches, riots and earthquakes). After 2 years she returned to Chilliwack got married and a few years later gave birth to her Son Dylan. She had a special passion for gardening and cooking and she loved to do her crafts that she was very talented at and she had a great love for animals. Annette had this caring nature for the people around her but most of all Annette loved being a mom to Dylan. She was so proud of Dylan and devoted each and every day to his happiness.
Due to COVID 19 restrictions a private family service will be held June 26, 2020 to honor Annette’s life followed by a small graveside service.
