Annetta was the eldest of ten children, and helped raise most of her younger siblings. She had two children of her own, four grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. Annetta was known as "Mamaw" to all of the younger members of her family, whether related by blood or not. She adored babies and children and they adored her right back. She was everyone's soft place to land. Then again, she didn't suffer fools gladly either. She wouldn't hesitate to tell you when you were wrong; she was almost always right. Mamaw is remembered for giving excellent advice on almost any subject, delivered in a witty albeit sharp-tongued way. She had a wicked, irreverent sense of humor, which always provided the family with great warmth, and livened up all of our family gatherings. Her quotes, while not always PG, were timeless and ring true to this day. Alzheimer's began to take her good humor away; the death of her husband took what humor was left. A stroke cruelly took away her power of speech. She loved to talk, and would strike up conversations whenever and wherever she was. She never met a stranger whom she did not befriend. She retained the ability to communicate with the very few words left at her disposal, and with the look in her eyes until her very last day on Earth. Rest in peace, Annetta; you will be missed.
Annetta is survived by her sisters Sherlene Madden (John), Patricia Phillips (Del), Sharon Finn (Don), and Mary Sue DeHart (Cobern); her brothers Gary Flannery (Holly), Johnny Flannery (Delores), and William Flannery; her son Kenneth Forman Jr. (Judy); her daughter Suzanne Forman; her daughter-in-law Denise Forman; her granddaughters Laura Spencer (Adam) and Elizabeth Blackburn (James); her grandsons Alexander Brangan and Sean Brangan; great-grandchildren Jacob Forman, Cullen Spencer, and Scarlett Spencer; and many, many, many, many, many (shortcut) nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews, including Gabby Madden, John Eric Madden, Peggy Gober, and Amanda Molina.
