It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved Annabell Alfonso Dinett, who departed this world on November 11, 2023, surrounded by the love and warmth of her family. She was 82 years old.
Annabell, a pillar of strength and a source of endless love, leaves behind a legacy that will forever be etched in our hearts. Born on June 16,1941, she embarked on a journey filled with love, compassion, and unwavering dedication to her family.
Annabell was born to the late Anthony and Lena Alfonso. Her siblings are the late Rose Alfonso Marty (Ray) and Frank (JoMarie) Alfonso. Annabell is survived by her husband of 63 years Leroyal Dinett. She was the devoted mother of children Linda (Ben) Benson, the late Leroy Dinett, Michelle Dinett, and Gary Dinett. She is survived by her beloved grandchildren Kristopher (Brandi) Benson, Nicholas (Bridgette) Benson, Courtney Benson Moore (David), Ashley Dinett Rebaldo (Jarrod), Andrew (Katie) Dinett, Shelly Dufour and Angelle Dufour, and her great-grandchildren Taylor, Josh, Abbey, Brady, Bryce, Reid, Rory, Cecilia, Brentlee, Hera, and Dominic. Annabell is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Known for her kindness and gentle spirit, she touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her warm smile and comforting presence could light up the darkest of days, and her wisdom was a guiding force for generations. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Annabell embraced each role with grace and resilience.
Annabell devoted two decades of her life to serving our community through her role at Walmart, where she became a familiar and friendly face to all who crossed her path. Her dedication went beyond the confines of the store; she became an integral part of the Walmart family. Annabell's cheerful demeanor and willingness to assist others made her a beloved colleague and friend to many. Her positive impact on both customers and coworkers alike will be remembered fondly by those who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Anna's commitment to the Red Hats was unwavering. She brought joy, laughter, and a sense of camaraderie to every meeting and event. Her vibrant personality and infectious enthusiasm uplifted the spirits of those around her, making her a beloved and indispensable member of their community. However, it was through her dedication to the We Care For Special People program that Anna's true selflessness shone brightly. She generously devoted countless hours to enriching the lives of special children, demonstrating a boundless compassion that touched the hearts of both the children and their families.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the We Care for Special People program in Anna's memory. Contributions can be sent to PO Box 113477, Metairie, LA 70011.
A memorial service to celebrate Anna's life will be held on November 16, 2023, at Garden of Memories Funeral Home. Visitation will be held from 9am-11am, with a mass to follow at 11am. We invite friends, family, and fellow Red Hat members to join us in remembering and honoring the remarkable woman who enriched our lives in so many ways.
As we mourn the loss of Annabell, let us also celebrate the enduring legacy of love, compassion, and service she leaves behind. May her soul find eternal peace, and may her memory continue to inspire acts of kindness in the days to come.
Rest in peace, dear Annabell. Your spirit will forever remain alive in our hearts.
