Annette Genevieve Bailey Millet

Annette Genevieve Bailey Millet, age 65, returned to her Heavenly Father on June 8, 2024, surrounded by her loving family in Draper, UT.

Annette and her twin sister Jannette were born on March 4, 1959, in Salt Lake City, UT to Joseph and Beverly Bailey. She grew up in Midvale with two sisters, Jannette and Susie, and three brothers, Mike, Alex and Jeff. Annette is survived by her husband Darwin, four children, Heather (Josh Schroeder), Darwin (Barbara), Johnathan and Heidi (Karl Wiedmeier) and 15-grandchildren.

The three sisters were the best of friends. They spent hours playing in their playhouse and driving the go-cart built by her father. She developed into an excellent seamstress, and spent many hours sewing doll clothes, clothes for sisters and herself, prom dresses for girls at school, and wedding dresses for herself and others. Early in her marriage her children’s dresses won blue ribbons at the Salt Lake County Fair.

Her mother, father and grandparents helped her to develop her love and faith in God and moral compass. At the age of 14 she lost her father. She relied heavily on that faith and her sisters to develop into a beautiful, righteous woman at a very young age.

Annette graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1977, and at the age of 18 she met her eternal love Darwin Denton Millet Jr. They were married in the Salt Lake City Temple on January 26, 1978, and enjoyed a beautiful marriage for 47 years.

Darwin has always adored Annette, his sweetheart. You can see it in his eyes, hear it in his voice and feel it in the way he treated her. For Annette, there was never anyone else.

Early in the marriage, Annette worked as a professional seamstress and salesclerk until the birth of her daughter Heather Schroeder on April 25,1979. From that point forward she was a loving and dedicated homemaker. On September 15th, 1980, she gave birth to her first son Darwin Denton III, known to her as “Denny Boy.” Two years later, she had another son Johnathan in Price, UT on June 12, 1982. Her last daughter, Heidi Wiedmeier, was born on May 8, 1987, in Sandy, UT.

Annette was always learning, growing, and developing her talents and her intellect. She loved art, and she and her sisters painted ceramics and crafted porcelain dolls. She of course made all the clothes herself. She went back to college and found she loved math and excelled in her studies. Later she developed a love for oil painting. She painted for 25-years, and her beautiful works of art are treasured by her family, friends and clients. The business offices where she worked is now an art gallery. Her love of color inspired her to be an avid gardener and her home won “Best in Neighborhood” several years while competing with professional landscapers.

Annette was always trim and beautiful. She did weight workouts and aerobics 6-days a week for about 40-years and was always mistaken for 20 to 30-years younger than her actual age.

After her children grew, she started her working career. She served as Vice President for American NDT for 10 years. Annette was loved by all her employees. Next, she was the Vice President of Axeon Corporation. With Annette at the helm, overseeing all professional trainings and expenses, she saved the company tens of thousands of dollars each year.

Annette was also a loving grandmother. Her 15 grandchildren know her affectionately as “Annie Grams.”

Throughout her life she served in many callings for the Church of Jesus of Latter-Day Saints. Some of her favorite callings were working with the youth, visiting teacher and as compassionate services leader. Her visiting teaching/ministering led to over a dozen baptisms and temple sealings. She was a Temple Worker at the Draper Temple until her illness made it impossible to serve.

Darwin and Annette served a back-to-back addiction recovery mission in the Salt Lake Valley and taught institute at the state women’s prison. Annette truly befriended those she served and helped each of them to see their personal value and divine nature. They could feel God’s love for them through their interactions with Annette.

Annette is loved, will be missed and we look forward to seeing her, hearing her voice and enjoying her laughter again. God be with us till we meet again.
