Annmarie was born in Ottawa, and lived the first 11 years of her life in Ontario and Quebec. Her family moved to Edmonton in the mid-1960s where she completed her schooling, graduating from Louis St. Laurent High School.
She married her high school sweetheart in 1974 and has lived in a variety of locations in Alberta, Saskatchewan and the NWT over her married life. In 2013 Annmarie realized her dream of living next to the ocean by retiring to Qualicum Beach BC.
Annmarie has always been a strong believer in the importance of her family. She has consistently been a faithful friend and confidant. She loved to read, belonged to local book clubs, and was a very regular patron of the Qualicum Beach Library. Annmarie enjoyed entertaining her friends and family at home and belonged to the Qualicum Beach Newcomers Club. She greatly appreciated beauty as evidenced by her home and yard/gardens. Of utmost importance to Annmarie was her very close personal relationship with her God.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Victoria General Hospital and the Vancouver General Hospital for the excellent care and compassion shown to Annmarie and her family.
In lieu of flowers, friends who so wish may make memorial donations directly to the Canadian Heart & Stroke Fund or the Victoria Hospitals Foundation.
