Annette Graham-Cassel was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on March 05, 1959 to the union of CL & Alberta Graham. God called her home on the day of Love, Valentine’s Day February 14th, 2022. Annette was affectionately known by so many loving nicknames such as Mutt, Net, TT and Netball. In 1975 she moved to Detroit, MI to live with her sister Emma where she attended school for nursing assistant and worked at Greater Grace Hospital. She was a natural believer in Christ and became a member at New Bethlehem Baptist where her sister Charlene was also a member. In 1994, Net moved back to Missouri, and resided in Howardville than she became a member of Good Hope MB Church. Annette had a personal relationship with God. She walked with God and is now
at peace with no pain and no suffering and everlasting life.
Netball enjoyed life to the fullest and she loved having a good time with her family & friends. She was the type of person that would give you the shirt off her back. Annette also loved music, especially listening to the blues. Toni Braxton was one of her favorite singers. She enjoyed family, cooking, BINGO & playing her Lottery Numbers. In her later years, Netball was a big fan of Tik Tok.
