Thinking of mum, brings joy & happiness to my heart. Mum made me laugh then & still makes me laugh!  So many giggles... I will miss Mum for sure!  I think of Mum daily! She taught me so much! I will follow her footsteps through life!  She had a great moral compass! 

Grandma Ann spoilt her grandsons with love & lots of attention! Grandma loved Bradley & Kyle when they were little & enjoyed their company! When they got older, Grandma volunteered her time to help at Brad (Alyssa's) inside and out & to help Kyle! She enjoyed helping others!

So many great memories! We could chat for hours with grandma in person or by phone!  Had lots of good laughs!  We never think of grandma as old, because Grandma has always been young!  She taught us so much, shared her wisdom & love. Grandma played a big part in our life!  Love you grandma! (You have a place in our Heart forever!).  

Ann treated friends like family and family like friends!  Ann is remembered by numerous family & friends for her wonderful sense of humour & friendship!  Ann meant so much to ALL of us!  She loved us lots!  She was a thoughtful, caring friend.

A Loving Daughter, Mum, Sister, Aunt & Niece.

Ann's last place of Employment was Cloverleaf Cheese in Calgary. Ann had a great work ethic and was all about customer Service, ensuring customers received the correct orders on time.  After 32 years of service, Ann retired!  She never forgot her colleagues!  She remained friends with John(Carolyn), Colleen, Laurie, Della, Eric & Irene.

I worked with Ann at Clover Leaf for about 20 years. Ann was always a joy to be around and was always happy even though she had faced many personal family difficulties/tragedies in her life. Ann would often come in my office while passing by with a story about family or just to have a laugh. After Ann retired she kept in touch with all of us at Clover Leaf coming like clockwork a couple times a year to visit. She would go office to office sharing many stories about her family, retirement life and what she was up too, we always had many laughs. Talk about a person with a positive attitude !! I as many others will miss Ann . Brad

Hey Laurie, Thank you! You treated Mum well and she appreciated it! The 2 of you always got along. Mum always had time for people! Friends and Family were a priority & she always kept in touch!

Thank you Colleen, Mum always said, "Colleen is a very compassionate person!" Mum was dedicated and fun! She is watching over now!

I was so lucky to have worked with your Mom at Clover Leaf Cheese many years ago. She was always a joy to be around. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

I worked with Ann for over 20 years. She was a dedicated and hard working employee, but more important she was an inspiration as a person. No matter what difficulties she encountered personally, she always brought a smile and a friendly and positive attitude to the workplace. I looked up to her and always enjoyed her company. She would visit us several times a year after her retirement and the time we would spend was full of laughter. She had a wonderful sense of humour and her kindness and devotion to her friends and family were always first and foremost. I will miss her greatly but know that I am better person having had Ann in my life. Laurie

Laurie and family, Anne will be missed by all. Her easy going manner to take the time to talk and and to listen to others was special. She always talked about her family and gave updates to what was going on. It was always a few good laughs whether she was on the phone or in person. Her laugh and easy going nature will be missed.
