Phyllis Ann Rooks

January 8, 1935 - June 4, 2023


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Ann Rooks on June 4, 2023, at the age of
88. Left to cherish her memory are her beloved husband, Dalton, and her loving family; Daughter
Louise, Granddaughter Jenny ( Jesse ) Great Grandchildren Liam and Cohen; Granddaughter Joanna
(Don) Great Grandchildren Colton and Kaden; Granddaughter Caitlyn (Kyle) Great Grandchildren Jaxson,
Olivia and Ella; Daughter Diane (Bevan) Step Grandchildren Bryn and Mikeelea ; Son Dalton ( Jennifer )
Granddaughter Jessica ( Colby ) Great Grandchildren Luke and Renley; Granddaughter Chelsea ( John );
Step Grandchildren Brighton, Alex and Julia; Daughter-in-law Danalynn ( Mike ); and many extended
family and friends.
Born in Calgary, AB to Robert and Phyllis Cunningham on January 8, 1935, she was a little sister to Joyce.
She was a kind, quiet and loving person who worked hard and passed these values onto her children.
She enjoyed family dinners with everyone and all the shenanigans that usually ensued. She was easy to
tease and had an infectious giggle. She was the heart of our family, listening to many tales and troubles
quietly, providing support and wisdom when needed. She will be missed by many.
She enjoyed working as a bookkeeper for Essondale Hospital and then for many summers, she worked
at Hastings Park Racecourse, first in the Mutuals and Money Room then later running the HBPA Feed
Store with Dad. Winters found her working at Cloverdale Raceway in the Mutuals and Money Room.
She was also very active in the Willoughby Saddle Club with us, the Willoughby Hall Society with Dad
and was a member of the Ladies Thoroughbred Club, where she made the horse blankets for the stake
race winners for many years. In her later years, she enjoyed volunteering at the Fort Langley Museum.
A Celebration of life will take place at a later date in Langley, BC.
