CALDWELL, Anita Marie (nee LeGal)
May 30, 1932 - November 13, 2012
It is with sadness and great love we announce that Anita Marie Caldwell passed peacefully into the arms of our Lord Tuesday, November 13, 2012. Mom was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the third of ten children of Joachim and Lodia LeGal. At age 12, she came to live with her Aunt in Vancouver. It was while she was working for Eaton's that she learned to ski and as a result met her husband of 59 years, Wesley Caldwell, on Hollyburn Mountain. Mom and Dad built their home in Dollarton, North Vancouver in 1958, where they have resided to this day. Mom took great pleasure in raising her children and encouraging us in whatever pursuits we chose. Never having had the opportunity to complete her grade 12, Mom returned to school as an adult to achieve this goal and then enrolled at Capilano College. Mom loved learning and was always open to new experiences. She enjoyed swimming, camping, boating, travelling with her family and was a committed member of her church. She is survived by her husband Wesley & children Donna Kill (Ed), Kathryn Mercier & Steven, grand daughters Jessica & Courtney (Len), great- grandchildren Davis & Coen, sisters, Yvette Poirier (Edgar), Diane Trudeau (Emile), Lorraine Gauvreau (Louis), Monique Paulhus (Ray), & brother Denis LeGal (Berthe) as well as many nieces and nephews. Prayers will be offered at 7:15 p.m. on Friday, November 23, 2012 at Christ the King Church, 22630 - 48 Ave., Langley, B.C. A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, November 24, 2012 at Christ the King Church at 10:00 a.m. with interment to follow at Gardens of Gethsemani, 15800 32 Ave. Surrey, B.C.
