Annette Felice-Schaal, age 79, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at home on July 30, 2021. She was born in Erie, PA on October 11, 1941, daughter of the late Salvatore and Celia (Marinelli) Felice.
Annette graduated from Saint Benedict Academy in Erie, PA and earned a degree in psychology at Gannon University. Her passion was helping people. This passion extended into her career at Stairways Crisis Services, especially in her last position as an adoption liaison. She loved cooking and baking for her family and friends, working in her garden, and being surrounded by her dogs and cats.
Annette is survived by her five children; her son Joe Herman III, of Erie, PA, her daughter Julee Spurgeon and her husband Gary of Jacksonville, FL, her son Chris Hermann and his wife Penny, of Erie, PA, her daughter Kellee Brady, PA-C, of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, and her daughter Erin Schaal. In addition, she is also survived by 12 Grandchildren and four great grandchildren, and her sister Anna Mae Ulbrich and many nieces and nephews.
Annette is eternally grateful for the gentle loving care of Heartland Hospice nurses, aides and Pastor David. The family is forever indebted for the exceptional love and attention given by her personal caregivers; Carrie Glas, Tina Marie Cuevas (her best friend), Sarah Turton and Lydia Skinner.
