We Remember

LAMP​ITT, Annie “Nan” Philomena

March 28, 1923 — June 14, 2022

Annie “Nan” Lampitt, 99, passed away on June 14, 2022. She was at her daughter’s home in Kelowna, BC where she had been living since 2015. She is held deeply in the hearts of her daughter and son-in-law, Deborah and Vin McConnachie; as well her siblings Hazel Leigh, Bill Fisher, Bob Fisher and Ron Fisher (Carol); and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

She was predeceased by her husband, Alfred; twin baby daughters Linda Anne and Lois Thelma; as well as her sister, Tillie Lampitt; sisters-in-law Joyce Fisher (Bob) and Valerie Fisher (Bill); brothers-in-law Frank Leigh and Wayne Oliver (Hazel); nephew Barry Oliver; and all of Alf’s brothers and sisters and their spouses.

Nan was born in Lashburn, SK in 1923, and spent the majority of her life on the Fisher family farm near Marshall, SK. The Fisher family were Barr Colonists to the area, and she and Alf took over the farm from her father when he retired. In her younger years, she was a great softball player, as well as a gifted actress and leading force in the Lloydminster Little Theatre Group. Throughout the years, she was very active in church and community groups, including the Marshall Ladies Auxiliary.

She was a wonderful cook and baker, and was renowned in the family for her cakes, cookies, bread and her signature ‘twisty’ buns. People visiting the farm would always go away with a care package full of goodies. Nan was also a fabulous mother, not only to Deborah but also to her two younger brothers, Bob and Ron, raising them after her parents’ deaths.

She loved the farm, and was happy to be able to remain on the land until her 90’s. For a number of years after Alf’s death, she continued to actively farm the land along with nephews Bruce and Brent Oliver.

Nan also loved animals, spending her recent years with her beloved cats Abby and Tinker (the 22-year-old calicos), and daily visits from Deborah and Vin’s pets (the ‘fur grand-babies’).

Funny, feisty, caring and kind, Nan was a universal mother to all and a caring and loyal friend. Among family and friends, she was always the first to provide a caring home to those who needed one. Her passing will leave a huge hole in the lives of all who knew her.

We give special thanks to: Cheryl Jaskow, Nan’s weekday caregiver and friend; Marti Gramlich, her weekend caregiver for a number of years; Healthy at Home, who were fantastic in providing additional support; and to the Interior Health Palliative care team, who were wonderful in helping us navigate the last six months. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Anyone who would like to make a donation in Nan’s name, please do so to the SPCA, or any local animal welfare charity.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later time.
