Ann SIMPSON

SIMPSON Ann. Entered into eternal peace on Saturday, January 5, 2013 in Abbotsford aged 79 years. She was born in Blackfald, AB on April 25, 1933 and after moving many times in the earlier years, spent the last 50 years in Abbotsford. She married Robert Simpson on August 3, 1951 and started their family shortly thereafter. All of Ann’s time and energy was devoted to her family and she raised not only her own 7 children but also had a hand in the upbringing of many of her grandchildren. Her house was Grand Central Station at lunch time and a gathering place in the evenings for poker and/or other games. Ann is survived by her husband Robert; her children Gary (Elsie), Linda (Frank), Robert (Donna), Barb (Ian), Bev (Doug), Bill (Yvonna) and Dan (Tavona); 18 grandchildren; and 13 great grandchildren. Everyone will miss her selfless but feisty demeanor, her fun loving attitude and her baking. Ann was predeceased by her siblings Don, Ian, Sue and Bunny. A celebration of Ann’s life will be held Saturday, January 26 at the Bradner Community Hall, 5305 Bradner Road, Abbotsford starting at 3:00 p.m. A light dinner and refreshments will be served at 5:00 p.m. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff at Menno Hospital and the Fraser Health Authority for their assistance over the past few years.
