Anne was born in Koszylowce, Poland and immigrated to Canada as a young girl. She grew up in Winnipeg, MB and met and married Phillip in 1950. Anne and Phil resided in Calgary for many years before they retired to Sidney on Vancouver Island in 1983. They spent many long happy hours creating their beautiful garden together and enjoying the ocean, which they both loved. After Phil’s passing Anne decided that her place was with her family, so in 2005 she moved back to Calgary. Anne enjoyed many happy occasions with her grandchildren, creating memories for all of them. She will be greatly missed.
