      "....Annette was an exceptional student, twice winning the R.B Bennett award for the highest marks in Alberta schools. She was an excellent pianist and won several medals before the age of twelve. Annette began her studies at UBC at sixteen and graduated with a B.A. in English. She met her beloved husband, Norman, in the registration lineup at the beginning of her first year. They married in 1940 and their love match lasted for forty-nine years until his passing in 1989. Annette was a community leader. She twice chaired the Women's Division of the United Jewish Appeal, and throughout her life was a steadfast supporter of the Jewish Federation. She was long active in her local chapter of Hadassah-WIZO and many other Jewish organizations. Annette was also dedicated to the wider community and chaired the North Shore division of the United Way. She was very involved in the arts as a founding board member of the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre and a board member of the National Arts Centre. She was the driving force behind the building of the Norman Rothstein Theatre at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver. Annette and Norman were adventurous travellers, and she loved boating, skiing, tennis, gardening, cooking, reading, classical music, and spending time at their house on the Gulf Islands. She was an animal lover and especially enjoyed her dogs. Annette had strong and passionately-held opinions and did not hesitate to share her views with others. She was a strong, vibrant person who remained active well into her mid-80s. She loved her family and friends, and touched many throughout her life with her extraordinary caring and acts of kindness. She will continue to be an inspiration to family, friends, and her community..."
