Anne was more than a neighbour , she was like you Sprague, my family.
The memory for me was when we first moved - the first few days in fact - you both said to us if JJ needed anything to just come over to your house .
Well little did I know that first weekend in our new home, he was already having pop and chips with you both until I returned.
I loved our happy hours in your beautiful backyard .
I loved her smile and chuckle but what I loved most was her deep continuous love for her Sprague .💞
I feel honoured to have had Anne in my life.
Anne was truly an angel on earth and now she is an angel in heaven. 🙏
Rest now beautiful soul.
Love, Gail and J.J. Sharko

Our sincerest condolence to you Sprague, on the loss your beloved Anne - Cherish all the memories and know we are here to support you through this tough time.

We have so many fond memories over the last 20 years of being at the cottage, chilling out in your backyard or having a great dinner out - the two of you have been like family and we are going to miss Anne more than words can say.

We will always remember Anne's soft gentle demeanor and her warm smile - but somehow, through all her gentleness she was still always able to keep you in line, which was not always an easy thing to do to be sure.

We love you.... Stacy, Scott, Tyler & Cole

Our love and best wishes go out to Sprague on the loss of the love of his life.
His love of and support for Anne while she fought this disease enabled her to have grace and dignity and a semblance of normalcy these last 10 years.
Anne was always a fun loving, kind hearted beautiful person who can now share cottage stories with her sister Betty in heaven.
Rest in peace Anne.

To my Aunt Anne, whom I've known and loved all of my life, may you Rest in Peace and Love. To my Uncle Sprague, please accept my deepest sympathy and love, you've been so strong throughout Anne's struggle with a terrible illness--know that you've done well by her and get some rest now. You two have the starring roles in some of my best, fondest memories--we always had such a good time together! I will keep those memories close until we all meet again. Love you both so much! --Sandra
