Obituary for Annette Catherine Newcomer

Annette Catherine Althaus was born on April 17, 1922 in Jamestown Township, Wisconsin. She was welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven on November 6, 2017 in Vacaville, California. She lived 95 years, 6 months and 20 days.
Annette was the second youngest of 12 children. Two of her sisters served God, His People and the Catholic Church in vocational ministry, Sister Valine and Sister Alquine. All of Annette’s siblings have preceded her into God’s Kingdom.
Annette was also preceded into God’s Grace by her beloved husband, Edward Charles Newcomer and her dear son Brian Joseph Newcomer.
Annette is survived by her sons Randall Wayne Newcomer, Glenn Edward Newcomer, Kevin Robert Newcomer, Alan James Newcomer and her only daughter Lois Jeanne Heiden. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-granddaughter.
Annette spent her early life on a family farm in Dubuque, Iowa with her parents Valentine and Theresa Althaus. Valentine passed away when Annette was very young and Theresa moved the family to East Dubuque, Illinois where Annette lived until she entered military service.
Annette enlisted in the United Sates Marine Corps on April 3, 1942. She was stationed at Marine Barracks, Mare Island Naval Shipyard, California where she met Edward who was also serving in the Marine Corps. The young couple met, courted and were then married in the base chapel on July 28, 1945. She was Honorably Discharged from the Marine Corps on October 24, 1945 at the rank of Private. She retains the title of “United States Marine” for all eternity.
Ed and Annette were married 65 years. They lived in Berkley, Martinez and finally settled down in the family home on Price Lane in Pleasant Hill, California. The home on Price Lane was a gathering place for family and friends over the years for holidays and special occasions. They also bought a lot in Tahoma, CA on the shores of Lake Tahoe, where Ed built a cabin. The Tahoe cabin was a refuge for them for years to come. They generously shared the use of the Tahoe cabin with family and friends who enjoyed many wonderful vacations and holidays there. She lived her final years in the loving care of her children.
Annette was a founding member of “Christ The King Catholic Church” in Pleasant Hill, California. The founding members were known as “Tent People” because the church worshipped in a tent erected while the original church building was being constructed on Brandon Road. She was part of the church Women’s Club and sang in the church choir. She was a church member for 66 years.
Ed and Annette shared many hobbies together. They loved to travel with their RV group called the “Rolling Walnuts” and went on many trips across America. They also traveled abroad to Hawaii and Asia visiting Japan and Thailand among other places. Her personal hobbies included bowling, her ladies Bridge Club, oil painting, sewing and crochet. Some of the children and grandchildren still cherish afghans that she would crochet as Christmas gifts each year.
