REIMER, Ann(nee Dyck)

Much loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, left this life peacefully with her son Wilf by her side on Sunday, December 27, 2015. Ann was pre-deceased by her husbands Jack Reimer (father of her six children), Bill Sparks and Glen Stevenson and by her sister Kay and brothers Jim, Cork, Jack, John and Bernie. Ann is survived by her children Shirly (Jack), Wilf, Lois (Piero), Ruth, John (Lisa) and Mark (Gloria), her grandchildren Kirstin (Shaun), Ryan (Nicole), Amanda, Jake, Georgia, Adriano, Danny, Jacquelyn and Mitchell and great-grandchildren Faith, Dominic and Sofia and also by her sister Helen and brother Hank. Ann was born in Lawson, Saskatchewan and moved as a teenager with her family to Yarrow, BC. She married Jack Reimer in 1947 and they moved with their first four children to Vancouver in the early 1950’s. In 1987, upon her retirement, Ann resettled in Chilliwack where she lived until recently when she returned to Vancouver to be nearer her children. Ann will be remembered for her incredible cooking and baking skills, for her April Fool’s jokes and, mostly, for her unfailing love and devotion to her children. She also took great pleasure in running a never-ending garage sale in the back of her beloved house on Second Avenue in Chilliwack. You could always find a deal there! Ann’s family would like to sincerely thank the staff at the Cedars Assisted Living Residence, the Palliative Care Unit at St. Paul’s Hospital and at the Cottage Hospice in Vancouver for their incredible support to our mother during her final year. A notification of a celebration of Ann’s life will be posted on her Facebook page. Online tributes to Ann can be made at the following link:
