Annette M Johnston

February 4th, 1957 to July 21st, 2021

Annette Marie Johnston, 64, of Ira Township, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 21,2021.

She was born on February 4,1957 and was a lifelong area resident.

Annette graduated from Port Huron Northern High School in 1975 and Kalamazoo College with a degree in economics. She will be remembered as a good Christian, a loving daughter, a doting aunt, and a good friend to all she met. She lived life with a joyful enthusiasm that was admired by all. She spent a long and successful career with Ameriprise as a financial advisor. Her clients trusted her and many became lifelong friends.

Annette was active in her community and church, First Presbyterian of Port Huron. She was a member of the church choir, where she played the Baroque Recorder, and also played as needed for several churches in the Port Huron area. She was an accomplished player and had many recordings made with her musical partner, Gary Rhody. In retirement, Annette enjoyed traveling, book club, crafting and camping with friends.

Another of Annette’s passions was writing children’s stories which helped teach financial skills in a fun way. She lived on her farmstead, “Frolic Farm,” where she enjoyed giving tours to school aged children and talking about animals and financial management.

She is survived by her brother, Thomas (Wendy) Johnston; two nephews, David (Simmy) Johnston and William Johnston; a niece, Emily (Matthew) Skowron; great nephews, Arthur and Joseph; sister-in-law, Joni Johnston; and many cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Murray and June Johnston. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
