Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
So sorry to hear of Anne's passing. Although I only got to know Anne for a few years while I was her hairstylist, I truly looked forward to our visits. She was a gentle soul who shared my love of our pets. I will miss her wonderful smile and our visits. - Posted by: Darcy Slon-Comeau (Hairstylist) on: Feb 06, 2020
Anne was such a nice lady. We will miss seeing her and Riley on our dog walks. - Posted by: Cheryl, Ryan & Champ (Neighbors) on: Jan 30, 2020
My sincere condolences on your loss. I pray that memories of happier times will see you through your time of grief! "God gave us memory so we might enjoy roses in winter." Anne was a gracious lady I was blessed to know for more than 20 years. I had the rare privilege of representing Manitoba at 2 Canadian Mixed Pairs Lawn Bowling Championships, with Anne as my playing partner. The world was a better place because of Anne, who has gone to be with the angels. She will be missed. - Posted by: Bob Strong (Friend) on: Jan 26, 2020
