Annette Niederkorn

Annette Niederkorn went peacefully home to heaven Sunday, July 10, 2022, to finally be reunited with her family and her Savior.

Annette was born in Port Washington on Aug. 18, 1938, to Frank and Cecelia Niederkorn, the youngest of four daughters.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with studies in library science, she began her first job at the W.J. Niederkorn Library in Port Washington.

Her story hour is a favorite childhood memory for many people.

In 1966, she left the family home on Jackson Street to begin a 32-year career as a reference librarian at Western Wisconsin Technical Institute in La Crosse. She especially enjoyed helping students with projects and papers.

After retiring in 1998, she enjoyed traveling abroad and to San Francisco to visit her longtime friend Jan.

Our “Aunt Nettie” will always be remembered as one who loved all her nieces and nephews and who showed much concern for our well being and paths in life.

She is survived by 11 nieces and nephews, eight great-nieces and nephews and six great-great-nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents Frank and Cecelia, three sisters, Marvel Foley, Myra Arendt and Cecilia Schanen, and one nephew Kevin Foley.

Annette’s ashes will be buried with her parents at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Port Washington during a family graveside service this fall.

She will always be dearly loved and missed by us all.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven ... He has made everything beautiful in its time.”        Ecclesiastes 3
