Anne was predeceased by her husband and best friend Donnie Richard Sr., son Steven “Boss” Smith, mother Lorna Smith, grandmother Margaret Smith, grandfather John Smith, uncles Morley “Cott” Smith and Walter Smith, aunt Mary Smith and cousins Vincent Smith and Benjamin Richard.
In her younger years, Ann worked at MDC until she met her husband and started her family. Anne enjoyed playing bingo until she lost some of her sight, and then started playing slots. She enjoyed being home with her children and grandchildren after her husband passed. She loved watching her cooking shows, and trying to make some of the recipes she would see on tv. Ann loved to go on car rides, especially to Winnipeg with her granddaughters to stay at her brother’s house.
She was truly loved and will be greatly missed ~ she was a great mother, grandmother and friend.
