Sherlock, Anne. June 9, 1932 – January 24, 2015
It is with deep sadness the Sherlock family announces the passing of their mother, Anne Sherlock, early in the morning of January 24th, 2015, in her 83rd year. Mom faced an insurmountable foe, but did fight a brave fight with cancer. Mom was born and raised in Nelson, BC in a large family of 7 sisters and 1 brother. In the mid 1950’s married Dad and moved to various places throughout BC before settling in Agassiz in the early 1960’s. Most will remember Mom as the Director’s secretary at the Agassiz Research Station for the last 20 years before her retirement. Since retiring, Mom’s most avid interests were her gardening, growing almost everything from seed or shoot, and spending many hours transplanting and watching things grow. She loved all the birds and tiny woodland creatures that came to live in her yard with her, especially the squirrels and jays. Her whole life focussed on her yard, her children and her grand/great-grand children. Anne was preceased by both her parents and several of her sisters and her brother. Our dad passed 8 weeks before her.
Left to mourn and carry on are her children Brent, Kim, Jason and Karan. Mom had 6 grand-children: Trevor, Nicki, Jake, Erik, Jylece and Kaydana. She also had 1 great-granddaughter, Jordana. No service at this time by request, however a celebration of life to follow: TBA. If you wish to leave condolences please consider the on-line option @ www.hendersonsfunerals com.
Kim and Karan wish to extend their sincere heartfelt thanks for the entire nursing staff and palliative team @ 4th Floor, Chilliwack General Hospital, as well as unspeakable gratitude for those who work and administer @ Cascade’s Hospice.
“Rest easy sweet mama…. We are all ok…… be without pain now.”
