Ann will be brought home to her family at Trout Lake, where she spent her younger years water-skiing, jumping off the pier and swimming and in winter, snowmobiling, skating and downhill skiing. She loved the lake; it was her sanctuary. Ann spent her last week on earth planting the flowers at her family home on the lake.
A very special thank you to Terry, her Church friends and dear friend, Theresa, who stayed with Ann while life support ended.
We all loved Ann so very, very much. Ann is now with her Lord and the Angels.

They are not long, the days of wine and roses;
out of a misty dream our path emerges for awhile,
then closes within a dream.
