Annette Haderlie Luthi passed away on Friday, June 11, 2021. She was born to Byron Frank Haderlie and Ruth Anderson on June 7, 1941 in Logan, Utah. She was the firstborn child of five.
Her father was attending the agricultural college at the time of her birth and continued to live in Logan until he graduated. The next move was to West Jordan, Utah where they lived until Annette was in the 2nd grade and then Spanish Fork, Utah for the next 5 years. Annette was 10 years old when her family moved to Star Valley to manage the family ranch. She attended Freedom Elementary School and Star Valley High School.
On August 27, 1959, Annette married her high school sweetheart, Henry Cordell Luthi in the Idaho Falls Temple. They spent the next 4 years in Logan, Utah while Cordell attended the university and she worked for the physics department. After graduation, their family moved to Cokeville, Wyoming where they spent the next 5 years.
In the spring of 1970, Cordell was hired as a teacher and coach for Star Valley High School. This move got them back to their roots in Freedom. She wasn’t too sure about this change, as she had no intention of becoming a farmer’s wife.
The years in Star Valley were the best years of her life. She loved the farm life and the people. She was Cordell’s right hand helper. Life on the farm was never dull.
They raised six children. She loved being a mother and watching her children mature and become responsible citizens. She loved following the kids around to sporting events, or whatever they were involved in.
Annette was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved the gospel and had a strong testimony. She served in many ward and stake callings and made lifelong friends. Her favorite calling was to work in the Idaho Falls and Star Valley temples.
She is survived by Curtis Luthi, Logan, Utah, Kelly (Robin) Luthi of Smithfield, Utah, Kim (Jared) Speakman, St. George, Utah, Kyle (Suzette) Luthi, McKinney, Texas, Kade (Amber) Luthi, Cheyenne, Wyoming. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, 3 great granddaughters, sister Joan (Roger) Romrell and brother, Kirk (Marla) Haderlie both of Arizona.
She is preceded in death by her beloved companion of 49 years, Henry Cordell, daughter Karen, granddaughter Kendra Speakman, parents, and her sister and brother, Sue Collins and Roger Haderlie.
She will be laid to rest in the Freedom Cemetery.
