Annette M. Lamle

October 9, 1961 — November 29, 2022

Annette M. Lamle, 61, of Columbia City, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday evening, November 29, 2022 in New Iberia, Louisiana. Born October 9, 1961 in Fort Wayne, she was the daughter of Carl and Rosina (Hinen) Harber.

She graduated from Columbia City Joint High School with the Class of 1980 and attended IPFW. On April 16, 1988, she married Tim Lamle. Annette had been a dental assistant, a homemaker, and retired from Ag Plus Raber Division. She was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Arcola where she had been a Religious Educator teaching Sunday School, a Cantor, and a third generation Organist at the church.

Annette was a loving wife and mother, and supported her sons through all their years in the Whitley County 4-H and the FFA. She was musically gifted and was blessed to have her grandmother, Luella R. Hinen, and her mother as a teacher and mentor playing the organ. For over 30 years, Annette sang the National Anthem at the Arcola Truck & Tractor Pull. Annette never met a stranger. She was very outgoing, her smile could light up any room and her hugs and kiss on the cheek will be missed. Annette was always willing to lend a hand to help others, volunteered when needed, and also volunteered at the Arcola thrift store. Annette was a very giving lady and even in death, she was able to help others by being an organ donor.

Annette is survived by her husband, Tim Lamle; sons, Cody (Krista) Lamle and Jared (Mikaela Fringer) Lamle; father, Carl Harber; brothers, Keith Harber and Neil (Celeste) Harber; several nieces nephews and a host of extended family and friends whom she loved dearly. She was preceded in death mother, Rosina Harber.
