The loss of our greatest Angel on earth is a loss beyond measure. Aunt Ann personified unconditional love. She loved all of God’s creatures... and some of we creatures did not make it easy on her from time to time. When we moved to Ottawa, I was 9 years old and didn’t know my Father’s family. Aunt Ann and Uncle Gib immediately took us in while my parents searched for a home for us to live. Aunt Ann not only made us feel welcome, she made us feel like we belonged. She somehow made it work for her 6 kids and we 5 kids to blend and thrive. She has kept us feeling that way ever since. My memories of our many moments over many years spent at their Cottage will always bring a smile to my face. She was truly an amazing lady. This photo is one of my favourites of her. This was her graduation photo. She was a class act and will be forever remembered and loved.

Jamie,
I’m so so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing, she was truly a special person who I have very fond memories of. My deepest condolences to you, Donna and Dave, and the rest of the clan at this most difficult time. As was said in the obit, she’s with Gibb, Tom, Matt and Joe.

Donna, David, Jamie and all of Ann's family. Your Mom (and my big sister) was a kind and caring woman. She went through so much sadness in her lifetime, but she was a strong woman and helped her family get through those tough times. She had a lot of blessings in her life also, especially her children. She loved all of you so much and was so happy to have her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She had a huge heart and would do anything for anyone in need. She will remain in the hearts of all of us and will be greatly missed. My love goes out to all of you. Aunt Maureen
