Annette D. Woolford, 90, of Wrentham died peacefully and in her home on Wednesday November 13, 2012. She had been the loving wife of the late Donald E. Woolford, Sr., who died in 2000.
Born in Woonsocket, Rhode Island on June 24, 1922, she was the dear daughter of the late Armand and Virginie (Jean) Lapierre.

Woolford Jr of Blackstone, Joanne Woolford Ollenborger of Crystal River, FL and Linda Wooford Davison of Temple, GA, and was mother of the late Donna Woolford Finley.
