PRICE/DINOSAUR,Colo. - Our loving wife, daughter, sister, aunt and friend, Annette Teresa Tryon Migliaccio, age 41, enjoyed her last earthly cup of coffee and ascended to heaven on July 2, 2009 at her home in Dinosaur, Colo.
Annette was born March 3, 1968 in Price to Kenneth Oran and Vena Mahan Tryon. She graduated from Carbon High School in 1986 and the College of Eastern Utah in 1991 with her degree in nursing.
Growing up, she was kind of a mama's girl and this bond continued through her life with daily phone calls to her mom.
She was friendly, compassionate, beautiful, and delighted in brightening someone else's day.
Annette had a knack for making people feel special, like they were they only people in the world that mattered. She truly loved them and nursing was a perfect arena for her to showcase her talent.
She worked in the Carbon-Emery area at Castleview Hospital and Emery County Care and Rehab. She was currently a hospice nurse for Uintah Basin Hospice.
She was married to the love of her life, Brent Migliaccio. Together, they enjoyed fishing and camping in the scenic Boulder Mountains, playing the lottery, spending time with family and friends, living, loving and laughing. She loved her pets, Jette, Greta, Frank. Betty and treated them as though they were her children.
Annette had many talents in her life, but her favorites were shopping, decorating her home and crocheting, which she learned from the master, Grandma Tryon.
She will be dearly missed by those who knew her.
