Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
What a wonderful friend Annie was and there was nothing she wouldn't do for her friends. I first met Annie when we came to Shilo. Later we became close friends when we both worked at Canex. Later on when I was in Winnipeg she would visit with me. We had some memorable times. There was never a dull moment. I went to Mexico with her a few years back just as the Alzheimers was starting and she knew then what was happening but tried to not let it happen. She truly loved her family and especially her grandchildren & great grandchildren. She was a great friend to my family and was there with me when 2 of my grandchildren were born. She always was there to help babysit my niece Darrah and loved going to their birthdays. I have missed her so much this last couple of years not being able to talk on the phone for long periods of time. I know she is in a better place now back with Don and maybe having a laugh at Georgette. Bye my friend till we meet again. Love you. - Posted by: Peggy McCutcheon (Long time & good friend) on: Jun 04, 2015
