She contributed during W.W.II in Fort William, Ontario as a “Rosie the Riveter.” Anna enjoyed reading and listening to music. Her door was always open to family and friends – she had a real interest in others, keeping track of birthdays, anniversaries etc. and she always rooted for the underdog. She will be greatly missed by all. Arrangements entrusted to COMOX VALLEY FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORIUM, 1101 RYAN ROAD. No service at her request.
