We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on June 26, 2006, of Anne Watson, at the age of 85 years. Anne was born in Hungary, and came to Vernon in 1946. She made a career in banking, retiring from the Royal Bank in Vernon. Anne was very active in the community, including the Schubert Centre, the John Howard Society, and M.S. Society, and was an organiser of many fashion shows over the years. She will be sadly missed by her husband of 60 years, Clem; children: Carol (Lea) Wegleitner, Don (Bev) Hagel, George (Judi) Watson; grandchildren: Donna (Nick), Dean (Gillian), Lynn (Dean), Michael (Nicole), Dixie (Deane), Kerri (Trevor), Tricia (Warren), Shelly (Mark), Carol, and Susan. Anne is further survived by 16 great-grandchildren; brother Ed Sebestyen of Saskatoon, sister Margaret Fox of Dundas, Ont., and numerous extended family members. Cremation will be followed by a Celebration of Life Service, to be held on Friday, June 30, at 1:30 PM at Trinity United Church, with the Reverend Allan Dawe officiating. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Anne to the M.S. Society, #202-4710-31 St., Vernon, V1T 5J9, or a charity of choice. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home. 542-0155
