Obituary - Annie (Ann) More
April 14, 1928 - January 9, 2019
More – Annie (Ann), born April 14, 1928, in Fort William, Ontario, passed away in Victoria BC on January 9, 2019, in a peaceful acceptance of God’s will. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 56 years, David Low More, in 2003, and her brothers Mike and Bill Zarecki of Sioux Lookout ON. Ann is survived by son Robert B. More of Vancouver BC, daughters Gwendolyn More (Vancouver), Nancy More (Victoria), Karen More (John Burrows, Spruce Meadows, AB) and Constance More (Swift Current SK); grandsons Mike More (Stacey Jacobs, Kimberley BC) and Alex Starr (Vancouver), great-granddaughter Aurea More (Kimberley, BC); sisters Helen Haverluck and Josephine Zarecki (Winnipeg) and brother Adam Zarecki (Souix Lookout); and many nieces and nephews. She will be missed by family and friends. Her vitality, resourcefulness, sense of humour and kindness will be with us always in our hearts. Ann was skilled in all the arts that made a house a home; cooking, baking, sewing, organizing, instructing and loving. As a youthful cook at a fishing camp she met husband David and they married in Winnipeg MB in 1947. Ann eventually worked for many years as a retail clerk at the Hudson’s Bay store in Regina, SK, and Victoria, BC. She was active at Whitmore Park United Church in Regina, and in Victoria was a member of the Monterey Recreation Centre, St. Aiden’s United Church, and finally, of the Oak Bay United Church.
