Ann Louise Riviere (nee Colbow)

Born November 22, 1921 ~ Died October 24, 2013

After a brief illness, Ann died surrounded by her four loving children. Born in Saskatchewan, she moved to Black Creek in 1945. Ann is survived by her children, Sy Pederson (Sharon), Drew Pederson (Leslie), JoAnn Palmer (Larry) and Leah Gibson (Ally), her grandchildren, Joe Poje, David Poje, Severin Pederson, Ingram Pederson, Leland Palmer, Robin Wilson nee Palmer, Graham Gibson, Becky Sulek nee Gibson, and seven great grandchildren. Ann was predeceased by her first husband, Joe Pederson, and her second husband, Joe Riviere.

Ann always said she wanted her flowers before she died, and so at her request no service will be held. Each of us will, in our own way, remember her and following her advice we’ll smile for what we shared with her rather than cry for what we’ve lost.

The family would like to thank the staff at St. Joseph’s hospital for making Ann’s last days as comfortable as possible.
