Obituary

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Annie, the matriarch of our family, on July 6th in the Sundre Hospital in Sundre, AB. She will be deeply missed by her daughter Bonita (Ken), her son Walter (Diana), her 7 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren. She was a treasured Aunt, Great Aunt, cousin, and special friend to many. Annie was predeceased by her husband Mannie in 1974.
Born in Three Hills, AB, the second oldest, and last remaining member of the McLeod clan. The family moved to their beloved Coal Branch, where their father, Gordon McLeod was a miner. When the mines started to close in the mid 50's, Annie and Mannie who had built up a successful group of grocery stores moved to Edmonton and started an insurance business. After 2 more moves to Calgary and Kelowna they settled in Sundre. Although Mannie passed away shortly after, Annie spent another 40 years working at Zim's Mini Mart and as a Unit Clerk at the hospital. She loved the small town atmosphere and when she retired her life was dedicated to volunteering and knitting. Her last pair of baby booties was completed just 3 weeks before her passing.
A Celebration of Her Life will be held in the Sundre Community Centre on August 06, 2011 at 2:00 pm.
If desired, please send donations to the Sundre General Hospital in lieu of flowers.
The family would like to Thank the staff at the Sundre General Hospital for her very special care.
