Relation: Niece

Anne was a wonderful Aunt and a very good friend to her sister my Mother Betty Houston. We lived far apart but whenever we talked on the phone we would pick up where we left off. Anne would tell stories of her and my Mom such as working in Regina, or dressing up as men and walking up to the old farm to surprise everyone. This was in the 40’s. They were always up to something when they got together. Another memory is the pointing fingers…I remember Anne and her sister Katie stopping in the middle of the mall in Regina facing each other to have a serious discussion and both pointing their index fingers at each other…it was priceless…they did not even notice anyone around them. So many good memories, Anne will not be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with Carl and Kim and family at this time. Love Leslie and Trevor Jones
