Annette (Annie) J. Govalet, 64, passed away unexpectedly in Bradenton, Florida, on Aug. 12, 2016. She is survived by her husband, Gordon Govalet, and their daughter, Leslie Govalet. She also leaves her sister, Lulu Kiley, and brothers Eugene, Richard, Ronald and John Jutras.

Annie always regarded Block Island as her favorite place and would often be heard saying, “Block Island is so beautiful.” She spent many summers here, both working and visiting with her sister, Lulu and brother-in-law, Dick Kiley. She introduced her husband to the island 30 years ago and it is now a favorite spot for both him and his daughter, Leslie. Annie always loved the ocean and could never live far from the water. She loved the beach, nature and cooking. She and her husband had recently retired to Bradenton, Florida.

A celebration of her life will be held at the Yellow Kittens on Sunday, Sept. 18, between 1 and 3 p.m.
