She was artistic and creative with her interior decorating, sewing, crafts, floral arranging, painting, and cooking. When it was age-appropriate, she joined the Red Hatters and had a ball. She also served as president and leader in various organizations such as: The United Fund, Cancer Crusade, Housing and Urban Development Association of Calgary (ladies), and the Electrical Contractors Association. Anne Worked with the Progressive Consertive Association for 20 years and managed the constituency office for three cabinet ministers during the 1960-70’s.

Anne will be lovingly remembered by her three children, Shari-Anne (Gregg) Stewart, Nancy (Reg) Butler and Glen LeGuyder; and grandsons, Gordon, Brett and Jameson. She was very recently predeceased by her grandson, Trevor Stewart. Also left to cherish Anne’s memory is her sister, Marian (Bill) Phalen; sisters-in-law, Marg Kaszas and Bernie LeGuyder; and all her nieces, nephews and friends she adored.
