Anna Jean (Ann) Wilson
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Ann on February 21st, 2012 at the age of 69 years, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Ann leaves behind her husband Alan, to whom she was married for 50 years; three daughters, Heather (Doug), Gillian (Dave) and Lynda (Jason); eight grandchildren; two sisters, Sylvia and Pamela (Bill); and one brother, Don. She was born in Londonderry, Northern Ireland on October 22nd, 1942, the first child born to Syl and Jean McGuinness, who have both preceded her in death. Ann and Alan together with Heather and Gillian came to Canada in March of 1965. For the first eleven years they lived in the Vancouver area before moving to Oliver where they owned and managed a turkey farm. In 1985 they moved to Vernon where Ann worked as secretary for St. James School and later at T.R. Thorburn Arch.
The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints Anglican Church on Sunday, February 26th, 2012 at 1:30 P.M. with The Reverend Rita Harrison officiating. Interment will follow in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Ann to the North Okanagan Hospice Society or to the Multiple Myeloma Society.
Our thanks are extended to Dr. Armanious, Dr. Hardy, Dr. Blythe, the staff at VJH and Dr. Vincent, family physician for the care that Ann received. Thank you to the staff at Hospice House where Ann was also cared for in such a wonderful way.
