    Ane will always be remembered as a great neighbour and special friend. When we moved back into the community Ane and Edwin welcomed me like I had never left…..that was so special. In Ane’s garden she grew beets and carrots for my borscht soup, made the tastiest cream puffs, created those wonderful birthday cakes every year, for many years for Mom, Barbara and myself because we enjoyed them so much.
    I always enjoyed my visits with Ane, I especially loved her attitude and
    opinions even at 99!
    We were blessed to have known such a kind and thoughtful neighbour.
    Our condolences to Gary,Donna, Dennis,Diane and their families.
    Fondly, Arlene.
