Obituary of Anna May Lancaster
Anna May Lancaster (nee Fraser) passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Sunday, December 8, 2019 at the age of 81. Beloved wife of 44 years to Robert and loving mother of Steve (1986), Gary, Penny and Paula. Cherished grandma to many grandchildren and great-grandchildren and missed by many nieces and nephews. Special sister to her 8 older siblings and sister-in-law to John (Anita) and Mary (Michael) in England.
Anna considered herself a domestic engineer and was well known in her family for her baking of oatmeal cookies and gingerbread houses. She was a Canadian Ladies All Star Bowling Champion and in her spare time would walk and as an animal lover be sure to pet every dog she passed. In 1992 Anna received the Governor General’s plaque for Outstanding Contribution to the Canada 125 Celebration for her services to the Kanata Children’s Theatre. Anna was also a very dedicated Johnny Reid’s Tartan army member, having the opportunity to meet him and bake him cookies.
The family would like to thank the staff and residents at Valley Park Lodge for their care and kindness during her time there. A special thank you to nephew John-John for his beautiful singing that helped to ease and comfort Anna in her final hours. As per Anna’s wishes cremation has taken place. Arrangements are entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). A celebration of Anna’s life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be shared to Anna’s tribute page at EssentialsNiagara.com. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or the Humane Society would be appreciated.
