They were married 53 years andwere blessed with five children: Jeannette Bessler (Felix), Frank Bonneau Jr. (Elaine), Patricia Wilson (Mark), Charles (Ann), and Philip (Misty). She considered her sons-in-law and daughters-in-law as sons and daughters.

She and Frank were blessed with ten grandchildren: Felix Bessler Jr., Jennifer Bessler, Mary Bessler, Stephen Bessler, Mike Bonneau (Omela), Ryan Bonneau, Misti Byrd, Rachel Hughes (Jonathan), Nancy Drummond (Colin), and Christopher Bonneau (Michelle). Ten great-grandchildren include Austin Byrd, Justin Byrd, Joey Bessler, Gabriel Bessler, Sasha Drummond, Corbin Hughes, Emmett Hughes, Harmony Bonneau, Devon Bonneau, and Jazlynn Bonneau.
Nannette was a wonderful mother who prayed and read the Bible with her children the day they came home from the hospital even when they did not understand what she was doing. There were lots of activities in which she invested her time. When she was older she was active in Bible studies and was a deaconess at church, a Sunday School teacher, room mother, and Girl Scout leader.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank, daughter, Patricia, and granddaughter, Mary. .
