Anna enjoyed the adventures life has to offer. Dancing with Bruce, backcountry canoeing in Algonquin Park with friends, reading and rug hooking to name a few. Anna was a member of the South Muskoka Curling Club for thirty-six years.
In the nineties Anna and Bruce retired, moved to a home with acreage, dusted off childhood lessons learned from their parents and began producing maple syrup with family and friends, a tradition that continues.
Special thanks from Anna’s children to all our friends and family who have supported our Mom and Dad with rides, wood cutting, food, syrup production and friendship.
Following Anna’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, July 15, 2023 1:00-4:00 pm at the Bracebridge Legion Branch 161 . In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Manna Food Bank https://mannafoodbank.ca/would be appreciated.
