Annette Bray

Annette Bray passed away on Sunday February 14, 2021.  

Annette was a 39 year member of Minneapolis-Richfield Unit 435.  Annette served as Department President in 2000-2001. She served two terms as District President in 1992-1993 and again in 2013-2014.  She was Unit President in 1986-1987.

Annette loved the American Legion Auxiliary.  She spent time participating as a chaperone during Junior Auxiliary events and enjoyed the time she spent with them.  She LOVED the Girls State program. Even as she began to have health issues, she continued to support the program and champion it. She was the Unit and 5th District chairman of Girls State for many years. Annette was able to attend the 2019 Girls State inauguration in June 2019 and was enjoyed being around the girls from the District and especially Madison Sloves (who was the 5th District Honorary Junior President). She enjoyed seeing so many young women going through the program that she adored.

Annette was a mentor and a cheerleader for those that came after her.  Even as her health took more and more away from her, Annette participated as much as she could and shared her knowledge. Now she has her angel wings.  She will be missed by many and never forgotten.

A memorial service will be held on May 21stClick here for more information
