en “Annette” Hylton, 56, of Madras, died of natural causes and was found at home deceased on May 14, 2012.
Graveside services will be held Saturday, June 2 at the Juniper Haven Cemetery in Prineville at 10 a.m. Rulon Workman will conduct the service.
Annette was born on Nov. 8, 1955, in Prineville, to Clark and Barbara Hylton.
She was loved by every single person she came in contact with. Her laugh and smile were infectious. She was genuine, thoughtful, and had a rare old soul. She loved her family, friends, going to the movies, the outdoors, and reading a good book.
She especially looked forward to the week in August and December she spent with her family in Idaho, playing card games, swimming, and playing army or Barbie’s on the floor with Ethan and Elexsie.
One of her greatest treasures and deepest loves was her nephew, Jared and his family. Most recently she became surrogate grandma to Hayden, Jacob, and James from Bend, who she spent a lot of time with.
Annette is survived by her sister, Bobbe Bilyeu and her partner, Gary Cannon of Boise, Idaho; her nephew, Jared Bilyeu and his wife, Melissa of Meridian, Idaho ; great- nephew, Ethan, and great- nieces, Elexsie and Ella of Meridian, Idaho. She also leaves behind some extended family and many friends who are already missing her.
She was preceded in death by her father, Clark in 1994; her mother, Barbara in 2002; her brother, Stuart in 1997; and both sets of grandparents.
Donations can be made to a charity of choice or to Bobbe Bilyeu at 11534 W. Oneida Drive, Boise ID 83709, to help cover the expenses.
A special thank you to Sue Williams who has been a friend to Annette forever, for all you have done to help the family through this distressing time, and to MaryAnn Bernard for your help and support as well.
