‘What the caterpillar perceives is the end, to the butterfly is just the beginning’ ‘Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well’
Annette Q. Grossman, 85 years of age, of Clermont, FL, formerly of West Hartford, CT, died quietly in her bed on Tuesday, March 22, 2016. Born in New York, NY, she was the daughter of the late Alexander and Dorothy (Tannenbaum) Quittner, and the wife of the late Benjamin Grossman.
Annette took night courses for her AA degree in Accounting, and worked as a Senior Accountant for the State of Connecticut for 27 years until her retirement in the mid-1990’s. In addition, Annette worked with her husband who co-owned “Hartford Kosher Caterers” until 1978. Annette loved animals (cats in particular) and the environment, and gave support to several animal organizations plus was a member of the Sierra Club.
She leaves her son, Richard Grossman and his wife Marianne of Clermont, FL, a grand-daughter Amanda, and two great-grandsons Sean and Lucas of Orlando, FL. In addition to her husband Benjamin, she was preceded by her Mother and Father of New York. Annette loved good food, always had a smile, a kind word, or was quick with a joke. Watching old movies and taking walks were two of Annette’s favorite past-times, and she was always mesmerized watching her great-grandchildren play and run around. She will be sadly missed by all.
Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 am on Monday, March 28, 2016 at the United Synagogues of Greater Hartford Cemetery, Waverly Street, Hartford, CT with Rabbi Edward Cohen officiating.
