Mrs. Annette Allen Cropper, 55, wife of David Cropper and resident of Princess Anne, Md., went to be with our Lord and Savior Sept. 19, 2020, after a long courageous battle with cancer at PRMC. Born on June 17, 1965, in Point Pleasant, N.J., she was the daughter of Arthur L. Allen and Anita C. Allen, of Accomac.
Annette grew up in Onancock, where she acquired lifelong friends and precious memories. She is a graduate of Onancock High School, class of 1983, where she proudly carried one of the flags of this great nation with the marching band. She was a member of Lynnhaven Baptist Church, where she enjoyed teaching the young children about Jesus in the Sunday School class. Annette was an avid animal lover who helped to relocate foster dogs in the local animal rescue group. She was also a strong supporter of metastatic breast cancer survivor groups, in which she would help to comfort others that were facing the fears of this deadly disease. Annette never knew a stranger, and was always willing to help others in need.
In addition to her husband and parents, she is survived by her daughter, Jakki Applegate, and granddaughter, Jasmine Applegate, of Salisbury, Md., daughter, Kelley Dykes, and husband, Joseph, and grandsons, Ian and Judah, of San Diego, Calif.; her brothers, David Allen, Leonard Allen, and his wife, Tana; and nephew, Colby, of Accomac; her close cousins, Edie, Audrey, and Cindy; and so many wonderful friends.
Annette was predeceased by her grandson, Joshua Harrison, and her cousin, Susanna.
Visitation will be held Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020, from 2 to 3 p.m., at Lynnhaven Baptist Church, in Pocomoke, Md., followed by the memorial service, at 3 p.m., with Pastor Kerry Hinton officiating.
