SPRINGFIELD - Annette Seckinger York, 80, passed away Friday, June 5, 202, at Effingham Extended Care Center surrounded by her loving family.
Annette was born March 10, 1940, to the late Charles and Florrie Seckinger. Living in Effingham most of her life, she was a graduate of Effingham County High School in 1958.
She worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and retired in 2001. She was an avid member of Jerusalem Lutheran Church and a member of the Salzburger Society.
Being a dedicated patriot, she loved her country, her flag and all they stand for. Annette was best described as being selfless, compassionate and always helping those in need. One of the greatest lessons she ever passed on to her children was compassion toward others and putting others first.
Annette was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Florrie Seckinger; and her brother, Kent Seckinger.
She is survived by: her children, Gia York of Maine, Mia Toomer (Michael) of Wyoming, Staci York (Kevin) of Guyton and Guy York Jr. (JoAnn) of Maryland; her sister, Margie Blewett (Tommy) of Rincon; seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
A graveside service was conducted June 8, 2020, at Jerusalem Lutheran Church.
The family suggests any remembrances be made in her memory to Treutlen House at New Ebenezer, 131 Old Augusta Road Central, Rincon, Ga. 31326.
