Annette Austad English, 62, passed away May 18, 2018. Annette was born Dec. 12, 1955, in Ogden, Utah, to Grant Jacob Austad and Barbara Laverne Pickett. She married Lysle C. English in Elko, Nevada, June 7, 1977, they were later sealed in the Ogden temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Annette attended Ben Lomond High School in Ogden and later attended Weber State University. She then went on to one of the best jobs anyone could ask for, raising her children whom she loved more than anything on this earth (aside from her grandchildren who came later). The family had the opportunity to live abroad for a time while her husband was a contract aerospace engineer living in Arizona, Virginia, Arkansas and Nebraska before finally settling in Toquerville, Utah, and then later in Hurricane, Utah.
After all the kids entered school, Annette began her career with the Hurricane City Police Department as a secretary where she worked 18 years and had many friendships that she treasured and even got the opportunity to work with her daughter toward the end.
Annette loved to travel on many special trips with her husband, read and cook the many creations she found on the Food Network. She loved listening to the music of her youth and she shared that love with her children who knew all of mom’s favorite groups and songs. She enjoyed watching sports with her kids and grandkids and always found time to come pick them up and take them out for a treat or to dinner when she didn’t want to cook. She always wanted each of them to feel special. One of Annette’s biggest loves was her grandchildren and she loved to come to their sports and activities where you could hear her over the crowd cheering them on.
Annette is survived by her husband Lysle C. English, Hurricane, Utah; her children Jason (Wendy) English, Farmington, Utah, Alisa (Daniel) Curtis, Saratoga Springs, Utah, Lysle Cortney English, Hurricane, Utah, Tiffany (Kevin) Mower, Hurricane, Utah, Amy (Wesley) Sanders, Richfield, Utah; 18 grandchildren; her siblings; and many nieces and nephews and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents Grant Jacob Austad and Barbara Laverne Pickett-Austad, and her brother Michael Stowell.
