A LA DOUCE MÉMOIRE DE Anna Gail Thomas (nee Trowsse)
It is with deep sadness that we announce that our precious wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed to her heavenly home quietly at the age of 84 on October 14 while at home with family.
She was the dear, loving wife of Lloyd for over 62 years. Treasured mother to Peter (Denise), John (predeceased) and Sharon (Alan). Loving Nanny to grandsons Brad (Taryn) and Matt (Sara). Blessed with great-grandsons Rory and Rowan and great-granddaughters Maeve and Isla. Nanny’s legacy red hair is being carried on by one grandson & great-granddaughter! Mom loved all the kids dearly & was blessed to have seen them all this past Thanksgiving weekend.
Mom was born in April 1937 in Wakefield, QC to Thomas and Laura Trowsse (nee McClinton). She will be dearly missed by her sister Beverly, who so lovingly spent time talking to Mom almost daily. She was predeceased by her brother Terry. Mom will also be missed by brother and sister in-laws, as well as nieces and nephews in Ottawa, Kingston and Newfoundland.
Mom always had a happy, joyful spirit, and a wonderful sense of humour which she would often express with that twinkle in her eye! She was the heart of our family home. Mom was strong in her faith and loved the Lord. She made many wonderful lasting friendships in the church family over the years, and had been a long-time member of Community Pentecostal Church.
While we will miss you terribly, we know you are at rest at last and will see you again in heaven!
Visitation and service by Invitation Only will be held at Community Pentecostal Church in Orleans on Wednesday, October 20. Visitation will be from 12:00 – 12:45pm and Service at 1:00pm. A private Interment will take place at Dale Cemetery in Cumberland following the service.
