Annette Perrone, or Tony as she was known to her friends and family, passed away 1 October 2021. My Christmas card and letter were returned as “undeliverable.” She battled health issues for several years. So as many of us seem to do of late, she was on borrowed time. And she worked in genealogy any way–planning conferences and seminars, assisting local researchers with their genealogy questions, training novices in the intricacies of family history, and filling library duty for the LDS Family History Center.
For many years, Tony’s home was my home away from home while visiting clients, speaking at seminars, researching among the genealogy resources of Southern California, and just resting from the rigors of travel. Her homemade meals and sack lunches kept me going. And her smile of welcome lighted the whole house when I arrived.
She also consulted with me on specific, difficult research problems. If she didn’t know the answer, she knew where to find more information or who to call for help.
I will miss her for all time.
