We Remember

SOWERBY, Marion Ann (née Macdonald)

1930 — 2019

It is with gratitude and joy that we celebrate our Mom, Ann Sowerby and the end of her 88-year journey. Born Marion Ann Macdonald in Sherbrooke Que in 1930, Ann graduated from Bishops University in 1951. She moved to Penhold, Alta. where she worked as an X-ray technician and met future husband Raymond Sowerby. Ann enjoyed life as a “career gal” but when she and Ray married in 1957 she put her focus on raising their three kids Sheila, Jane & John. The family was moved from Ottawa to Colorado Springs Colo., to Kingston Ont. while Ray was in the Air Force. They eventually settled in Kelowna, B.C. upon retirement from the military in 1972. Ann raised her kids, curled, golfed, enjoyed singing in musical theatre productions and volunteered for over 20 years at Kelowna General Hospital. Though the last few years had physical challenges Mom never lost her wit or appreciation of her family and her love of animals. June 24, 2019 Ann passed peacefully surrounded by loved ones. She will be missed by her children, their partners Larry, Richard and Shauna, her grandchildren Erin (& Cameron) Bennett, Logan, Jackson and Sydney, also her cat Hannah and her many fur grandkids Ted, and many more. Her feisty spirit will never be forgotten, and we are so grateful for having had her in our lives! Many thanks to the staff at Three Links for their exceptional care of our dear Mom. A private family service will be held at a future date. We love you Mom…hug Dad for us and shine on…
