Family meant everything to Anne. When she wasn’t travelling down to see her family in New Brunswick, she would be hanging out with her kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Anne also had a love for Bingo, garage sales, country music and baking. Anne will be remembered for her smile and didn’t expect much from anyone. It didn’t take much to make her happy. She loved without regret and will be greatly missed by all.
The family would like to send a special thank you to all the staff St. Michael’s Health Centre in Lethbridge who treated her like family and took such good care of her. The family really appreciated it and it was never over looked.
