Anne Amelia MATTHEWS

Matthews, Anne Amelia

February 14, 1916 –

September 26, 2010

After a brief illness, Anne passed away peacefully at the age of 94 at Westminster House care facility. Born in Vancouver, Anne led a rich and varied life, with many hardships and a lot of happiness especially during the last 23 years that she was married to Richard, who pre-deceased her in 2004. Anne even wrote a book about her life titled appropriately “Sunshine and Storms”. Among Anne’s greatest past pleasures were golf, going to bingo with her special friends Donna & Darryl Catton, bargain hunting at second-hand stores and most of all being able to help others less fortunate than herself. Anne is survived by her children Ed Nunley, Carol (Alfred) Peters, Wendy (Colin) Sutherland and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Special thanks go to Harmony Health Care Staff, especially Erica and Linda, and her dear friends Bernie Blessman and Ed Polinsky for helping her to achieve her wishes, of being able to remain in her home as long as possible. No service at her request. Cremation and ashes to be interred with her beloved Richard.
