We send our condolences to all the family...we didn’t know this lovely lady, but her grandniece, Naomi (nee Dancaster) Patkai is our sweet daughter-in-law, and she told us of how she was supported and encouraged to play music by her Great Aunt!

Sharon, Sandy and families: i was sitting in my deer blind at camp early this a.m. when Ted and Deb texted me to say Anna passed away. As I sat there I cried as I thought of all the great times we had with her and how she loved to visit her home town of Sackville. Mom and Dad enjoyed her many visits, as we all did.... such great memories of a strong wonderful lady... a true matriarch for sure. Take care.. xoxo Angie
