Anne (Anni) was born in Kamsack, SK and grew up on a large farm and experienced the hardships and joys of growing up there. She rode horseback, enjoyed the snowfalls and hauled water from the Assiniboine River near their house outside of Kamsack. Anne lost her mother very young but lived and flourished with her grandmother, sisters, brother and father in a little house with wood heat while they endured the depression era. She loved her horses and many animals. She was a nature lover. Anne left Kamsack to discover Winnipeg in the mid-fifties and employment led her to join her friend, Linda from her hometown to discover the West Coast and move to Vancouver, BC. She enjoyed going to dances and working while living with her friend and was destined to meet her potential husband Sgt. Robert Scott who was in Vancouver after World War II ended. They were married in Vancouver. While living at various Canadian Armed Forces Bases and homes throughout Canada, they had two daughters, Anne & Bob. Eventually they bought a small hobby farm in Chilliwack, BC. Anne
enjoyed their farm and residing in Chilliwack brought her back to nature. She had a green thumb growing flowers that were her highlight, as well as vegetables, fruit and her great love for her animals. She loved cooking, baking and canning, Borscht and Perogies were a specialty. Anne enjoyed socializing with people and every Sunday would pack up her truck with treasures and spend the day enjoying the company of others while selling her treasures at the flee market. She always had a friendly word to say to others. Anne has touched many lives and will be forever remembered with loving memories. Thanks to the various Care Facilities that helped her in her later years. Should family and friend so desire donations in her memory may be made to the SPCA. On line tributes and condolences may be offered at Henderson’s Funeral Home in care of arrangements. 604-792-1344
