Anne was a treasured, long time friend who enriched my life greatly. We came to know each other the year following her beloved husband Ron's death. I had lost my husband several years earlier, and it was our shared grief experience that bonded us tightly. From that time on, our friendship grew. Anne began to volunteer in my elementary classroom not far from her home at that time on Gainsborough Road. She was so loved by my students and me. Anne spread love and joy wherever she went, and she touched my life deeply. I will love and miss my dear friend forever. You will always be deep in my heart, Anne. Joanne Armstrong

It is difficult to put into words, our love & friendship with Anne. It’s the magic that happens when you meet someone and feel as if you’ve known them your whole life. Kindness is a four letter word....Anne. She was always your champion, cheerleader and inspiration.
It’s hard to imagine this world without her life force in it.
We will miss our many luncheons, celebrations and chin-wags. Anne’s lovely way of telling you how much she loves & cares for you. To make sure that you really understood how important you were to her, she would lean in, place her hands on both sides of your face and look deeply into your eyes while she said what she wanted to say. Miss you already, Anne.
Thank you to Chris, Graham and all their families for sharing Anne with us.
She will be forever in our hearts...
Love from Tracey McGuire & Grant Howard ♥️

So many memories of my Aunty Anne. Presents when I was a child, phone calls and letters. But my most precious memory is of Aunty Anne travelling from Canada to England for my wedding to my darling Husband Dave. Subsequently when I lost him in 2013, her beautiful messages of empathy and sympathy. Rest in peace my beautiful Aunty Anne XXX

Special Memories of Auntie Anne.

Visits she made to England. She made everyone feel like we had known her every day, all our lives and had a special way of making everyone feel at ease.

Lovely letters we exchanged every Christmas keeping us both informed about the huge family she has in Canada, and the rather smaller family here in England.

A birthday gift, she sent me for my 12th birthday, ANNE of GREEN GABLES, which is still on our bookshelf today!

An amazing positive Auntie of Carol (Les), Great Auntie of Marnie and Kimberly and Great Great Auntie of Mason.

You will be missed always x

You will always be remembered with love.

A TRIBUTE TO MY LOVELY SISTER — ANNE
(FROM BILL CLARK)

To those who never knew our mother, I briefly summarise a conversation with Anne, at which Ron was present, many years ago, when I visited Canada.

We were discussing families, relatives, and so forth, when I said to Anne,
“If I could choose a sister, then it would be someone, just like you,”

Looking rather bemused, she naturally replied, “Why?”

When I responded,
“Because you’re so like Mum”, her look of apprehension changed to happiness, probably combined with relief, but she was absolutely delighted.

Although both of them possessed firm beliefs about many things, they also had big hearts, together with generous, understanding, feelings, towards their families and friends. Furthermore, each of them was motivated by a keen desire to participate in activities, designed to benefit the local community, or any clubs and organisations, to which they may have belonged.

For most of our lives, Anne and I were separated, largely because of two events, namely, WW2, when we were evacuated to various safer parts of the country, and also because her and Ron, with Graham and Chris, chose to live 3000 miles away!

However, I do have invaluable memories of Anne which I shall cherish forever.

In this final tribute to a remarkable person, I am both happy and very, very, proud to call Anne —

MY WONDERFUL SISTER
