Condolences & Memories (9 entries)

  • My greatest condolences to the family. I will always remember the phone call I received from Ann, when I was 8 years old. She asked me to join the Somerset ringette team. Many memories were made playing with Nadine. I can see your Mom's smile so clearly in my mind. She had a heart of gold. Always encouraging and cheering us on. I hope the memories will give you some peace. Micheline Lafrenière (Hébert) - Posted by: Micheline Lafreniere (Friend) on: Dec 28, 2021

  • Deepest condolences to the whole family. My parents were long time friends and have many good memories with Ann and Garf. Thinking of you in the difficult time. - Posted by: Joanne Gross (Family friend) on: Dec 18, 2021

  • As a cousin growing up with Ann in Trochu, Alberta in the 1940's and 50's, I remember many good times visiting with the Knievel family out on the Knievel farm. Ann's family farm was 4 miles out of Trochu. It was always fun for me and brother Louis and George to either walk or ride our bikes out to the Knievel farm where there were lots of cousins our age to play kick the can, and other games. Ann was a couple of years older than myself, and her other siblings, but she always was looking out for us and making sure we did not get into too much trouble. I have many good memories of her as she was like a big sister to me. I had the pleasure of being at her graduation in Vegreville in 1956, and at her wedding to Garf in 1960. Very sorry to hear of her passing. I would like to send my condolences to Garf, Kathy,Donna Lynn, Mary Ann, Brad, and Nadine. May your memories of your mom always be with each of you. God Bless.

  • My sincere condolences to Ann’s family. Ann and her sister Mary were my dad’s pride and joy. As a child I was in awe of them. If cool was a term way back then, they were my cool cousins. Life and living far apart meant we didn’t see each other but that never diminished my love for them. Rest In Peace sweet Ann - Posted by: Ruth Meehan (Cousin) on: Dec 12, 2021
