On December 18, 2013, 4 days after her 64th birthday, Ann Murray Freeman died peacefully, at home, in the Comox Valley, with her loving family at her bedside. Having been diagnosed with cancer, a year and a half earlier, Ann continued to live her life to the fullest, every day. Days before her passing, she was still up and about, sporting her ever present smile, baking Christmas cookies, and visiting with friends and family.
Ann was a teacher and a beautiful mother to Trent and Destry, who she loved so much; a mother in law to Pat, who she adored; a cherished sister to 8 siblings; a darling to her mother and father, Evangeline and Robert; a smiling, loving adult to countless children and former students; a true, loyal friend and confidant to so many; my wife and best friend.
Her smile, her friendliness, her zest and her compassion made her universally loved. She is missed.
Ann’s family and friends will be hosting a memorial celebration of her life at the Big Yellow Merville Hall on Sunday, January 26th, from 4pm to 6pm.
Bring memories of Ann. All are welcome.
