Annette Blanche was born on January 5, 1920, to Fredrich and Bertha (Grunewald) Zimmerman on the family farm in Oscar Township. She felt blessed to be one of thirteen brothers and sisters. She attended Country School through the eighth grade. Annette was united in marriage to Hallet Weiss on October 16, 1937, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Elizabeth. They lived in Erhard for 40 years and raised four children. They made their church home at Grace Lutheran Church where Annette was a lifetime member. Together they lived in Fargo for 20 years. After Hallet died, Annette moved to Fergus Falls. She had many roles including nursing assistant, loving daycare provider and helping on the farm. Annette also enjoyed spending time gardening, sewing and refinishing antiques. She was most proud of being grandma and great-grandma.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Hallet; daughter, Jean Bohnet; and great-granddaughter, Rose Loegering.
