Tribute & Message From The Family

Annabelle Earl, 8, of Hanson, died on September 10, 2019 at The Brockton Hospital. She was born in Boston, Daughter of Darrell and Karen (Dunstan) Earl.

Annabelle loved everyone she came across, and everyone she came across loved her as well. She was a loving and playful sister. Whether she was causing havoc with her Brother Logan by either scaring people by surprising them with an assailing Nerf Gun attack, or playing sidekick to her sister's, making up dances or painting nails, Annabelle was always there with her courageous smile. Her older sister especially got a kick out of styling Annabelle's hair to look like a "Troll." She was also a "Daddy's girl who loved going fishing, or for rides with her loving Father Darrell.
Annabelle also loved shopping, going for walks, and eating chicken nuggets with her Mommy.

Annabelle was the beloved daughter of Darrell and Karen (Dunstan) Earl of Hanson. Sister of Logan and Olivia. Granddaughter of Earl and Victoria (Lane) LaChance of Fl and the late Suzanne (Glover) Dunstan, and Jeffrey Dunstan of RI. Niece of, Lisa Dunstan and James Lane of Middleboro, Crystal and Christopher Dunstan of RI, Kendra (Earl) and William Burleson of CO, Keryn (Earl) and James Schassbuger of NC, and Jack Dunstan of RI. Also survived by many loving cousins and friends.
