The family of Annetta Maguire regrets to announce her death on July 3, 2015, just 17 days short of her 95th birthday.

Annetta was born in Vegreville, Alberta to Malcolm and Margaret MacMillan. She was a resident of Vernon for 50 years and was a longtime telephone operator and supervisor with Okanagan Telephone and B.C. Tel.

She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her family: sons Greg and wife Sharon and Garth and wife Marian; her grandchildren Sean and Megan Maguire, Leah Morrow (Dean), Brock Maguire (Sarah), and Will Lauder (Jenna); and her great grandchildren Declan, Naya, Misha, and Nash; as well as her nieces and nephews and extended family members.
