Anne Dora Jorgenson

1935 – 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

Anne passed away on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 at East Kootenay Regional Hospital after a very short battle with cancer at the age of 80. 

Anne was born on December 21, 1935 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She moved to Lethbridge, Alberta in 1951 where she fell in love at first sight with her husband Gerry. They were married in 1961 and had their daughter a year later. 

They lived in several communities in Alberta, Yukon and BC, before settling down in Cranbrook in 1975. Anne worked for the Bank of Montreal and Scotiabank for many years before retiring in 1987. 

Anne’s greatest love was her family and grandkids. She was a very caring and giving person.  She especially enjoyed her Tuesday’s spent at the casino and dinner afterwards with her husband. 

Anne is survived by her husband Gerry and only daughter Tracy (Art) Salanski, grandkids Aaron (Alecia) and Kendall, brother-in-law Keith (Rita), many nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

She was predeceased by her parents Joe and Dora Picard and brother Emil.

No funeral service will be held at Anne’s request.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health.  13 – 24th Avenue North, Cranbrook, BC, V1C 3H9.

We would also like to express our sincerest appreciation to the Doctors, Nurses at the EKRH for their care and compassion during her illness.
