Annette Kleist, 80, of Monaca, PA walked into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Wednesday, December 23, 2020 at 8:42 am after a brief illness. She was surrounded by her loving daughters, grandchildren, and also her sister from St. Louis via FaceTime.
Born April 15, 1940 in Rochester, PA, she was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence J. Mangin and Florence (Mazzocca) Mangin and her beloved grandmother, Antonetta Mangin.
She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Clifford G. Kleist, sister Mary Ann Milnes, daughter Amy Reategui, daughter Lauren Kleist, grandchildren April (Shawn) Marocco, Amber (Jonnie) Schooley, Miguel Reategui, Jr., great grandchildren, Landon & Gavin Marocco, and Jonnie and Aria Rose Schooley, and nephew John Milnes. She also leaves behind her dog, Henry, who was her baby.
Annette was an active member of New Brighton Christian Assembly Church, having received Jesus Christ into her heart as her personal Lord and Savior in 1973. She loved reading, doing crossword puzzles, and word search, and perusing Facebook and playing solitaire on the computer. She also loved a good cup of soup. It was her fondest wish that her family would love and serve Jesus and to that end, she was always a shining example of a strong, faith-filled Christian woman.
Friends will be received on Sunday, December 27, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the Simpson Funeral & Cremation Services, 1119 Washington Avenue, Monaca.

Entombment will follow in Sylvania Hills Memorial Park Mausoleum, Rochester, PA.
The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at Heritage Valley, Beaver for all of their skilled and compassionate care.
