She will be missed and fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews.
In former years Anne was devoted to her family, her church and her business career. She and Rudy with the help of her family established a prosperous furniture and interior decorating business, where she enjoyed many years there until her retirement.
Anne was assisted in her strong desire to maintain her independence as long as possible, and we know she would wish to thank with gratitude Dr. David Fera, the kind and attentive personal care provided at home by the care co-ordinators of Home & Community Care Algoma, We Care Home Health Services, and over the past several years the wonderful care provided at the Mauno Kaihla Koti Nursing Home.
Due to the current circumstances and in keeping with Anne’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial mass will be announced by the Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E 705-759-2522) at a later date.
Memorial contributions in Anne’s memory (payable by cheque or online) to the New Mauno Kaihla Koti or ARCH would be greatly appreciated.
