It is with heavy hearts that the family of Anne Nelson announces her passing at the Rocky Mountain Village on April 8, 2012 at the age of 77 years. Anne was born to Louis and Mary Kubos in Fernie, BC on January 5, 1935. Anne is survived by her brother Joe Kubos of Castlegar, sisters in law Bessie Kubos, Vicki Kubos, Nina Kubos and Mary Kubos, brother in law Buzz Bradley and numerous nieces and nephews.
Anne was predeceased by her parents and her brothers; Louis, Steve, George, Daniel and Tom Kubos as well as her sister Cecelia and her beloved husband Leonard on April 14, 2005.
Anne was a very faithful member of the Catholic Church and spent many hours meticulously caring for the flower beds outside the church and the linens used in the church, she spent many years volunteering for teas, funerals and other functions. Anne also belonged to the Royal Purple, CWL and Fernie Seniors Drop In Center. Anne worked hard for her employers and enjoyed many years at Johnny Rahal’s and then at the old Fernie Hospital. She was passionate about her gardening, friends and relatives who dropped by. She would often be found on her hands and knees in her garden with all three of her beloved cats sitting nearby. One of the family’s fondest memories of Anne was of her fabulous cooking; the cabbage rolls, perogies and halusky were something they will always remember. When she was not at home, Anne enjoyed many years with family and friends camping, playing cards and reminiscing about the old times.
Loved by family and friends and admired by many who know her, Anne will be sadly missed by all who knew her and shared in her life and her legacy.
