Peacefully at the Sault Area Hospital on Wednesday, August 18, 2021 at the age of 70 with her husband at her side.

Loving wife of Roy for 50 years. Caring mother of Stephanie Pritchard and Christine Pritchard (Brian Jolicoeur). Proud grandmother of Zachary, Easton and Kayden. Dear sister of the late Louis Ricketts, Mary Hynes (late James), Gerald Ricketts, late Benedict Ricketts (Nora), Philomena Byrne (Gerald) and Robert Ricketts. Sister-in-law of the late Barry, Guy, David (Christine), Marilyn Walters (Roy) and Colin (Peggy). Ann will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Ann will be remembered for her sassy, wicked sense of humour and her Irish determination. She was the heart of the family and will be sorely missed.

Special thank you to the doctors and nurses in Emergency, on 3A and 3B at the Sault Area Hospital for their wonderful care.

At Ann’s request, no services will be held. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

Memorial contributions by cheque or online to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E. 705-759-2522). Please visit to leave a message of condolence or a memory as a keepsake for Ann’s family.
