Anna Jane was a very quiet and shy person. She liked to stay at home and care for her family. She loved reading especially her Saint Anne books, which she received monthly since back in the seventies. She loved to watch soap operas; her favourite was The Young and The Restless. She was very interested in watching the summer games, especially Golf and Baseball. She suffered and survived much illness over the years; she was a strong woman in many ways.
Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, March 1st, 2018 from St. Anne's Roman Catholic Church at Conne River.
