Annie “Anne” Lion
April 11, 2023
With deep sadness, we announce that Annie “Anne” Lion (92) passed away in her sleep on April 11th, 2023
Born on September 5th, 1930, at Isle aux Morts NL, Anne grew up with her 6 siblings on the small island of Ramea off the east coast of Newfoundland. She eventually moved to Toronto, where she met the love of her life, John Lion. Anne and John moved to the small Ontario town of Marathon where they started a family. However, the lure of the west was too much, so they moved to Kamloops in 1965.
Anne worked at Sears as a comptometer operator for many years. She was passionate about healthy eating and fitness. She could often be seen walking around McArthur Island Park or working out at the gym with friends.
She loved to cook and bake, putting on huge meals for friends and family. Everyone looked forward to her chicken and rigatoni dinners, perogies, pecan logs and ginger cookies.
Anne is survived by her sons Jim (Liz) and Rob (Cyndi), Grandchildren Kyle, Robert (Christine), and Jason (Rick) as well as great grandchildren Maddi, Cora and Emily. Anne is predeceased by her loving husband John, and granddaughter Julianne.
Special thanks to Overlander residential care staff and Dr Howie for looking after Anne in her final years.
If desired, donations in memory of Anne can be made to Alzheimer Society of BC or the Heart and Stroke foundation of Canada.
