A burial Mass is 10 a.m. Aug. 5 for Alpha Eugene Day Annett, 99, at the Infant of Prague Catholic Church in Bridgeport, Calif. Mrs. Annett died July 22, 2006, in Gardnerville.
Mrs. Annett was born May 1, 1907, in Fulton, Calif., to Charlie and Edna Brown Fallon Day. She grew up spending her time between Smith Valley and Bridgeport, Calif. She attended Dominican School in San Rafael, Calif. and witnessed the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge.
She married Norman T. Annett in 1926. They traveled extensively and later raised sheep at the family ranch in Smith Valley.
The Annetts had two children, daughter Norma Jeanne and son Alfred Charles. She loved to travel, especially to the Hawaiian Islands and she enjoyed golf and fishing. In 1952, Alpha and her husband Norman established Annett's Mono Village Resort.
She never officially retired and remained a confidant and advisor to her entire family. Her countless stories and memories of another time will be missed, but passed down to the generations that follow.
Mrs. Annett was preceded in death by her husband Norman T. Annett in 1993 and her daughter Norma Jeanne Annett Costa in 2005.
She is survived by her son Alfred (Josie) Annett; sister-in-law Dorthella Silva; son-in-law James Costa; grandchildren Dr. Peter (Inge) Costa, Paul and his wife Julie Costa, Norman and Kellie Annett, Arlene and Jeffery Mills, Allen and Lori Annett; great-grandchildren, Austin and Victoria Mills, Angie and Jamie Annett, Carson Costa and Madeline Annett. She is also survived by many extended family members, as well as numerous friends including Peggy Lyon, dear friend for more than fifty years.
The family would like to thank the Care Givers of Nevada, especially Ulla Sangild, Patricia Lloyd and Janice La Pointe, as well as the staff and residents of Merrill Gardens during her final months.
Graveside services will follow mass at Hillcrest Cemetery in Smith Valley. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to the Mono County Historical Society, P.O. Box 417, Bridgeport, CA. 93517.
