(née Catherine Anne Taylor)
December 6, 1950 – January 21, 2016
Anne fought a long and courageous battle with Multiple Sclerosis, among other ailments. She passed away peacefully on January 21, 2016 after a stay at NRGH.
Anne was known for her rich stories, deep friendships, keen sense of humour, and bright smile. Anne was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and moved to B.C. as a teenager. She spent many years in Vancouver, raising her boys, supporting local sports and maintaining friendships at Park Royal Shopping Centre. Upon moving to Nanaimo in 2012, Anne enjoyed weekly trips to Woodgrove Shopping Centre, holiday traditions with her grandchildren, and being part of the family at Kiwanis Village Lodge.
She is lovingly remembered by her sons, Rob (wife, Maquinna, and children Isabella and Lucas), Grant (wife, Samantha, and children Elizabeth and Jackson) and Stew (wife, René, and children Keaton, Bailee and Colton); sister, Patricia (Tim); brother, John (Shirlyn); and many nieces and nephews.
