We sadly announce the passing of Annette Marie McDonald on July 29, 2019 in her home at the age of 78. She was predeceased by her husband Ian McDonald on January 10, 2010 in Saskatoon, her father Christian William Christopherson, mother Ella Olivia (Fredrickson) Christopherson and her brothers Roger in 1988 and Chris Junior in 2019. She is survived by her brother Calvin Christopherson (Minnie) from Medicine Hat, Alberta. Annette was born in Theodore, Saskatchewan on December 10, 1940 and moved to Nipawin in the early forties with her family. She took her schooling in Nipawin and Saskatoon. The family moved to Saskatoon in 1954 where she was employed at a local law firm. Annette was also a proud founder of the 567 Car Club in Saskatoon. She will forever be in our hearts.

It is with great sadness I write this note upon hearing of Annie's passing. It is like the second pillar of my teenyears has collapsed. The same feeling I had in 2010 when Ian passed away. Both Annie and Ian played a large role in shaping me into an adult. The years I lived with them were full of many adventures and experiences.
I give thanks for having Annie in my life and will forever remember what she and Ian did for me.

After hearing of Annie's passing my thoughts go back to when I joined the Fifty 567 Club the first year at the Draggins Car Show, going forward to all the car shows, show and shines, road trips to various towns and cities to catch up with and promote our club, and the fall banquets in October at The Saskatoon Travelodge.
Ahhh yes then there was the Annual Fifty 567 Club Western Canadian Meet (WCM) held each year on the August long weekend mostly in Calgary, once in Edmonton, Saskatoon, and the long run to Victoria back in 1981 - - a very special WCM for sure.
Yes, Annie was the one who ran the home (head) office for the International Club, spending countless hours phoning, organizing the monthly magazine, ordering jackets T Shirts, memorabilia etc. and kept everything flowing along .
Now all just memories for the members that are still with us - - but what sweet memories = = Oh What A Ride It Was
Thank You Annie.
