Passed on: November 30th, 2012
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved spouse, sister, aunt, and friend, Anne-Marie Grace, on November 30, 2012 at the age of 58. She is predeceased by her parents Albert and Josephine Grace. Leaving to celebrate her life with loving memories are her devoted partner, Jim Ledwell; her dog Boo; sister Barbara Hawes (Doug); brother John Grace; nieces and nephews: Katie Hawes and Gillian (great-nephew John), David, Catherine and Tara Grace and their mother, Noreen; the Ledwell family; dear friend Tyrone Power; Elizabeth and the residents and staff of Island View Guest Home, who all held a very special place in her heart; and many other wonderful friends and extended family members. Cremation has taken place. A funeral Mass celebrating Anne-Marie’s life will take place at 9:30 a.m. on December 20th at St. Teresa’s Church, with a celebration of life to take place at a later date for family and close friends. Anne-Marie’s heart was so big, and so full of love, and in the end it was this heart of gold that took her away from us much too soon. She will be forever remembered for her kindness and compassion. She was truly one of a kind, with her infectious laugh and always with a smile on her face. She was a lover of dogs, and of camping, and of having fun, and she devoted her life to helping others. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to Cystic Fibrosis Canada (there she goes again, helping others, namely her great-nephew John).
The memory of a good person is a blessing.
We carry your heart, Anne-Marie;
We carry it in our hearts.
It is not length of life, but depth of life. Forever remembered. Forever loved.
