Annie Marie Lonergan born April 20, 1924, in Fraxville, Lunenburg Co., the daughter of Hazel (Hiltz) and Hewitt Bezanson, passed away November 15, 2015, in Grand View Manor. Growing up during the depression, Annie learned the essential skills of cooking, cleaning and taking care of others. In 1946, she married Laurence Douglas Lonergan and they had five children. She worked in the Housekeeping Department, at Grand View Manor, for 14 years. Earlier in her life she had worked at the Cornwallis Inn, MW Graves plant and Minas Basin & Berwick Fruit Companies. Annie was a loving, hard-working, fiercely independent lady, with strong morals and a great sense of what she thought was fair. Her word was gold – she always kept her promises. She was dedicated to family, church and community. In 2010, Annie was chosen the Town of Berwick’s Volunteer of the Year, an honour that she truly appreciated. She really enjoyed gardening, “digging in the dirt”. She was a very good cook, sewer, crafter, and enjoyed building simple wood projects. She was a true country girl with a fantastic memory for names and past events. She loved to travel and was proud that she got to “Kiss the Blarney Stone” while in Ireland. She was dedicated to Christ Church (Anglican), Berwick, and was a member of the ACW since 1956. Annie was predeceased by her parents, her husband, her sister Minnie and son-in-law, Bertram Richardson. She is survived by her children, Gary (Carolyn) Lonergan, Linda (Wayne) Pineo, Beverley Richardson, Glenn (Heather) Lonergan, Keith (Linda) Lonergan; grandchildren Tina, Shawn, Chris, Dana, Suzanne, Angela, Adam, Jillian, Julie; great-grandchildren Breanna, Andrew, Emma, Nathan, Cyrus, Winter, Lennon, Allison, Natalie; brothers Arnold (Diann) Bezanson, Chesley (Janet) Bezanson; sisters Marion Lowe, Beulah Barkhouse; sister-in-law Sylvia Lonergan; many nieces and nephews. Donations may be made to Christ Church or charity of your choice. Funeral services were held Nov. 18.
