Anna Marie Brabbins



It is with saddened hearts that the family of Anna Marie Brabbins announce her passing on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 94 years young.

Anna Marie was a woman of much grace and wisdom with unending devotion to family, friends and her faith. Her sharp mind, quick smile and thoughtful, gentle nature enriched the lives of all lucky enough to share her world.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Don (Leslee), Darcy (Clarice), Wendy, Carol (Greg) Cameron and Colleen (Peter) Cavanagh. She leaves a legacy of love in her 16 adoring grandchildren, Joshua (Cecilia), Emily, Anna, Jim (Jen), Maggie (Chris), Kelly (Rob), Matthew (Liz), John (Ashleigh), Ian (Jessie), Mark, David, Kate, Jamie, Leah, Mary, and Nicholas; as well as 4 great-grandchildren, Elise, Cameryn, Jude, and Jackson.

Anna Marie is also survived by her devoted sister, Kathleen Lauerman, sister-in-law, Joyce Brabbins and Cheryl Brabbins. She also leaves many nieces and nephews whose relationships she treasured.

She was predeceased by her loving husband of 69 years, Bud (E.S.), in 2013, with whom she looked forward to being reunited, as well as many more who shared her most full life.

We grieve the loss of our most precious matriarch, knowing the influence of her loving and engaging spirit is far reaching and will remain forever in our hearts.

A Memorial Service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011-114 Street, Edmonton, officiated by Reverend Martin Carroll.

We extend heartfelt thanks to the Cross Cancer Institute and Unit 9Y of the General Hospital for their compassionate and dignified care.

In lieu of flowers, kindly consider making donations to Covenant Foundation, Room 3C60, 11111 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T5K 0L4 directed to Mel Miller Hospice, 9Y or to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, 11560 University Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T6G 1Z2.
