The event creator says
As many of you may recall, our beloved Ann passed away rather suddenly, April 1, 2013 - 8 days before her 50th Birthday. Ann was born April 9, 1963 and raised in West Windsor, as one of 6 siblings, mainly in their longtime residence on Rosedale St, practically located between her grade school (St. Francis) and highschool (J.L. Foster Collegiate). With regard to the later, Ann was an avid Forster Spartan, who participated on numerous Student Council committees and Sports Teams. Most noteably she was a member of a few WSSA and SWOSSA Cross-Country championship teams from 1978-1981. Following in the footsteps of her eldest sister, Ann also went to the University Windsor and became qualified as a teacher. However upon graduating from the Uof W in early 1990's, she moved out to Vancouver to join his baby sister Carol, as did other members of her family. While there she owned and operated a very successful store vintage resale shop called Ann Echo, and she also gave birth to her only child Ella-Nya. Although she returned to visit family and friends annually, Ann never returned to Windsor to live, and ultimately made her home on the Sunshine coast of BC, just north of Vancouver. When she passed away, although her family respectfully placed an Obituary in the Windsor Star also, many of her close friends in Windsor were not able to travel to Vancouver in time to pay our final respects to her. While many of her new friends in Vancouver were able to celebrate there, as did some in Windsor, when her friend Todd passed away shortly thereafter, many of her childhood friends were not aware of that celebration until afterward. Thus this is yet another event to celebrate her illustrious life well lived near and afar. This event will not only feature a video presentation of her numerous memorable moments, and spoken tributes by friends, coaches, teachers and fellow athletes there will also be a silent auction to help raise funds to pay for the memorial tree and bench to be planted and placed respectively at Malden Park, in her honor, on our about April 9th/'15...her 52nd birthday. This location was selected as a memorial site, because Ann's Cross Country team often ran the hills there when it was still used as a city dump, before being turned into the park we know it as today. The event is being co-sponsored by the City of Windsor Parks Dept and the World Art Games - Canada committee. Some of the proceeds will also go toward the Sandwich Action Teen Group (STAG) as Ann absolutely loved children and would no doubt want to support this worthy cause. Items donated for the silent auction would be greatly appreciate. Details for submission or collection of these items are to follow ~
