She is also survived by her sister, Carole of Walpole, and nephews Joseph and Ken Ferrelli, and her brother, Dan and wife Fran Quintilliani of Plymouth, and their children, Danny and Lisa Quintiliani, and their children, as well as several members of the Kowalski family, and of course, her much beloved loyal companion, her dog Patsy. She also leaves behind many whom she befriended and second-mothered over the years who will miss her dearly. She was pre-deceased by her husband Jack Kowalski and her parents, Jennie and Dan Quintilliani, and best friend for life, Charlotte and husband Bob Castagnola.
Annette lived most of her life in Dedham (DHS Class of 1959), where she married, raised her children and had a variety of jobs. She moved to the Cape in 1996 and was employed by the Council on Aging in Mashpee where she coordinated the Meals on Wheels Program. She retired in 2016 and moved to Walpole to be closer to family. Although she loved being a mother, she truly cherished her role as GramAnnette to her grandkids.
