“Unity” she was and will be in the memory of many Fredonians.
Annette Elliott, who cared for all people—critters too—annually, during Fredonia Heritage Day festivals, assumed the role of Unity McDonald who with her husband John was among initial pioneer settlers of Fredonia in the 1830s. Our “Unity” readily assumed whatever tasks she could undertake—from making suggestions during planning meetings to scrubbing with her Comet, helping the Community House to shine beforehand. And then on the big day as initial emcee dressed in heritage costume Unity heartily welcomed everyone to our “Sweet Hometown, Fredonia Alabam.”
But of course she would. Annette lived her life with heart---whether In singing and Bible study at Langdale UMC, playfully distributing gifts as Mrs. Santa Claus and helping prepare Brunswick stew as well as being barbecue hostess for the Library Room at the Community Club, sewing for grandchildren, writing notes to friends. . . .
We join the many in thanksgiving for this beloved friend. May her infectious gentle spirit continue its stirrings in the hearts and minds of all whom it has touched.
