The Obituary
ANNETTA E. ALSTON, daughter of the late Oliver and Nannie C. Gray, was born on August 22, 1925 in Washington, D.C. She departed this life on Wednesday, August 17, 2005.
Annetta was united in marriage to the late Nathaniel Alston. Of this good union, one son was born; Nathaniel Alston. She was a good wife and devoted mother.
Annetta and her parents owned and operated “Oliver’s” Pet Shop on Lancaster Avenue for thirty years or more.
She was a wonderful and caring neighbor, mother and friend to anyone who came in her presence.
She leaves to mourn her passing: one sister, Myrtle Gray; two grandsons, Nathaniel Alston, Jr. and Shawn Alston; one granddaughter, Rita LaJuan Alston; two daughters-in-law, Leslie and Connie Alston; one great daughter and friend, Carolyn E. Lewis; six great-grandchildren, Julius, Nathaniel, Tiffy, Shawn, Jade and Jasmine Alston; one great husband and wife team, Eugene and Ella Alston; also her brothers and sisters-in-law and other relatives and friends.

God saw the road was getting rough
The hills were hard to climb
He gently closed her loving eyes
And whispered, “Peace be Thine.”
Her weary hours and days of pain,
Her weary nights are past;
Her ever patient, worn-out frame
Has found sweet rest at last.

Sorrowfully submitted,
The Family
