August 5, 1929 — January 22, 2019
In peace and with dignity, Anne passed away at the age of 89 after a lengthy illness. We will remember her kindness, soft voice, willingness to help others in need, and especially her smile.
Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her most cherished gifts. They are all blessed with the most amazing memories of their Mom and Grandmother.
Anne was predeceased by her loving husband John in 2013 and son Gordon in 2003.
During her illness her daughter Pat was always by her side. Travelling from Winnipeg every month, she accompanied her mother to each and every appointment. Most recently she was with her for their last visit together.
The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Kelowna General Hospital – 4th Floor, Kelowna Cancer Clinic, Dr. Michael Bobyn, Dr. Greg Dueck and staff for their excellent and compassionate care. Thank you also to Liz, Nicole and Shelley who cared for her in her home over the last couple of months when Pat could not be there.
Anne was loved by so many people in her close community. Many are still there from when John and Anne first moved in and continue to watch over each other. For that, Pat is very appreciative. A special acknowledgment of gratitude goes to friends Elaine, Teri, Doreen and Angie for their endless support and friendship especially during this difficult time.
