February 6, 1930 - April 12, 2024

With sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Annette Cram at age 94. Born February 6, 1930, in Craig, Sask. Passed away April 12, 2024, at Cascade Hospice, Chilliwack BC. Time will take our tears away, but memories are in our hearts; forever loved and forever missed.

Annette was exemplary nurse and graduate of the St. Paul's Hospital RN Program and a member of the heart surgery team. Later a treasured ICU and PAR nurse at Chilliwack General.

She was an active member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and a long-time member of CWL and volunteer at Mother Theresa. Forever remembered for the passion in nursing. Away from nursing she enjoyed skiing, camping in their motorhome and even backcountry in a tent, golfing, and a good ramble. She so loved their retirement home at Baker, which she and hubby Gord designed.

And adoring great grandkids (which earned her the title" GG") - Conor (Brandi) Tyson, Cam, Zhayra, Lily, Sage, Christianna, Evangelique, Ethan, Wyatt, Maya, Anastasia and Maevy.

Much gratitude to special friend Sherry for her incredible TLC. Special thanks to Dr. Enns, Dr. Melnyk and Dr. Epp, the caring staff at Hospice and Elim Village.
