Anne Marcia Brookes

February 6, 1940September 26, 2019

It is with great sadness we announce that Anne Marcia Brookes (née Golowaychuck) passed away peacefully in the late afternoon of September 26, 2019, at the age of 79. Predeceased by her parents and brother, her eldest daughter Darcey, and the love of her life Norman, husband of 40 years, Anne is survived by her youngest daughter Christy, sister Rosemarie, niece Krista, nephew Scott, and sister-in-law Donna.

Raised in Winnipeg, Anne was a tomboy who, from a young age, marched to the beat of her own drum. She would move to the west coast in the early 1970s, landing in the Alberni Valley with Norm, where they added to their small family with one child. She quickly made many friends, the majority of whom lasted till the end of her life. She was well known and beloved in the community, both from working for more than 20 years at the hospital, as well as being an avid and accomplished golfer. She was fierce and she was fire and she will forever be remembered as the most loyal, dedicated and loving friend, wife, mother, anyone could ask for. You were one of the luckiest people in the world if Anne was in your life.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday October 20, 2019 from 2:00-4:00pm at the Alberni Golf Club (6449 Cherry Creek Rd). People can send their sympathy and condolences in the guestbook provided and share it with the family. In lieu of flowers, her daughter asks that donations be made in Anne’s memory to the Alzheimer Society of BC (Provincial Office – 300 - 828 W.8th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E2).
