It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Anne May Bjarnason at her home in Calgary on Friday, November 26, 2004 at the age of 74 years.
Anne was born in Calgary and grew up in Creston, BC. Anne and George married and settled in Calgary and remained in the city throughout their lives. Well known as the Proprietors of Fairplay Stores, Anne and George dedicated themselves to Fairplay from the mid-70’s through to 1995 when daughter Christine assumed responsibility for the family business. Anne continued to be an active part of the store right up to her death. Anne will be remembered for her passion for gardening and her voracious appetite for novels, crocheting and spending time with family doing jigsaw puzzles.
Anne is lovingly remembered by her three daughters and sons-in-law, Christine and Don, Susan and Colin, and Donna and Paul; a son and daughter-in-law, Stephen and Della; as well as her grandchildren, Michael, Reid, Julia, Jack and Sam. Anne is also survived by her sisters Barbara, Katie, and Marion; and brothers, Johnny, David, and Stanley. Anne will be sadly missed and always remembered by her family and friends, especially Jennifer and her son Devon. Anne was predeceased by her husband George and her brother Carl.
A Celebration of Anne’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.) on Wednesday, December 1, 2004 at 12:30 p.m. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery.
