For 65 years, Annette, who was known to many as “Aunt” or “Auntie,” served Louisville’s Jewish community by working at the JCC in almost every capacity. As our Membership Director, she ensured that the JCC was open, warm and welcoming to all.
Annette often spoke of starting her work here in 1944 at age 19 as the YMHA’s Armed Services worker, organizing USO dances and ensuring that the needs of Jewish service personnel were met. When the “Y” became the JCC and moved into its new building in 1955, she became the adult activities director, and in 1986, she became the membership director.
Always ready with a big smile and a word of encouragement, Annette was beloved and will be missed.
