At a young age, Annette would tippy-toe to the piano to play. Annette was gifted with the ability to play by ear. Her ability to play by ear led to a career in sales of pianos and organs in Indiana and Florida and included the management thereof. Annette once said, “I never worked a day when I was selling pianos and organs.” Annette was organist for the Arabian Horse Show, held at the Pepsi Coliseum and filled in as organist at sporting events throughout Indianapolis. Annette was also an accomplished church pianist and organist. Most recently, Annette was a Home Health Aide.
