Anne was a friend to my Mom, Eleanor Ford with whom she had worked with as a young nurse at the Hotel Dieu. Years later my mom and dad became residents at the Heidehof Home. She made their time there so much better and they talked about her often after she left. I would run into her occasionally, the last time at Costco a few years ago and she was always so sweet to me. I could tell she was not well when I last saw her but did not realize how sick she was. She was a wonderful woman and way...

To the Baker Family Kim, Kevin and Kelly, Sibling and Friends our heartfelt condolences to all. Anne was always warm and friendly when our paths would cross and a lovely smile on her face. She would ask how I was doing and genuinely cared. We wish to send our prayers for peace and comfort surrounded by the love of family and friends.

Anne was one of the nicest ladies I ever knew. A compassionate and professional nurse. A pleasure to work with and to have known her.

Anne was a very kind compassionate person who will be missed greatly. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

She was one of the the sweetest ladies.
Always talked about her kids and grand kids she loved so much.
Rest in peace Anne.

We had the pleasure of living next door to your Mum on Ameer for many years. You are so right, she was a loving caring person.
Our condolences to the family.
