Administrative History
Annette Richardson (née Traub) was born on 30 August 1940 to Herta (1916-2011) and Honza "Jack" Traub (1917-2003), Czech expatriates who found themselves in London, England when the Second World War commenced. Annette's father, Jack, was related to one of the Czech families that arrived in Canada in 1938. As a result of losing his parents and the family business to the Nazis, he became close to said family.
Annette studied at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, majoring in math. She worked as a computer programmer for a short time before becoming a mother. Throughout her life, she has been a volunteer in the different communities that she has resided in.
