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.

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.
