Ann (Marguerite) Petersen – born in Webbwood, long time resident of Bracebridge, passed away peacefully at Muskoka Shores on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 at the age of 84. Beloved wife of the late Eric Petersen. Dear mother of Mike, Patrick, Steven and Nicole. Daughter of the late Stanley & Bernice (nee Graham) McMillan. Loving sister of Rita Engel, Helena Currie and Colleen Thompson. Predeceased by sister Leona Corbeil and brothers Mac, Marvin and Harold McMillan.
Mom, a retired nurse, believed in being of service to others. She was active within the church, participated in the CWL for decades and volunteered at The Pines.

Our deepest gratitude to Muskoka Shores staff for their exceptional care of Mom for the past few years.
