July 17, 1915 – April 8, 2015
Anne (Annie) Harris passed away peacefully in her sleep, just three months short of her one hundredth birthday. Anne was born in Birkenhead, England to Richard and Elizabeth Fletcher, the youngest of their eight children. She married Charles in 1940 and they immigrated to Canada in 1949. Anne was predeceased by her loving husband in 1986. Anne is sadly missed by her two daughters: Janet (John Irving) and Linda (Kent Cavaghan); grandsons: Nick (Meg), Matthew (Lindsay), and Gibson; great grandchildren: Max, Selah, Willem, and Elliott; and many dear friends and relatives. Anne was a devoted wife and mother, a talented knitter, seamstress, and homemaker. She was also a hard working volunteer in her community and a successful business woman in the various sales and management positions she held. Anne was an outgoing person who cared for and supported neighbors and friends. She was a lifetime member of the Order of the Eastern Star. The family extends our sincere appreciation for the care and love mom received from Esther Webb at Armstrong’s Abbeyfield and the wonderful staff at Pleasant Valley Manor. Special thank yous to doctors P. Rutherford, M. Clement, R. Sherwin, and JP Viljoen for years of care and support. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 18 at 2:30pm in the Anglican Church Hall, Armstrong. If you wish, a donation could be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association in Anne’s memory.
