Anne was born in Mountain Road, Manitoba on February 25, 1919 and had been a resident of Revelstoke since 1949. She was a member of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Anglican Church Women and Hospital Auxiliary, where she helped work in the Thrift Store. In her younger years, Anne was a hairdresser, a ticket seller at the arena, a house cleaner, a clerk at Cerolini’s store and before she moved to Revelstoke, she worked at the Military Canteen in Manitoba. She started selling shoes in Faffy Romeo’s shoe store and then moved to the Co-op where she worked for many years. She became a qualified shoe salesperson, knowing how shoes were constructed and became the shoe buyer for the Co-op. Anne could look at a person’s feet and tell them exactly what size and type of shoe they should wear and inevitably what she chose was perfect for the person. Anne also enjoyed cooking, was a wonderful baker and made great “Carefoot” chow mein.
Anne was predeceased by an infant daughter Carol in 1943 and five brothers: Peter, John, Michael, Alex and Victor. She is survived by four children: Spencer (Marilyn) Carefoot of Revelstoke, Karon (Bruno) D’Andrea of Vernon, Garry (Love) Carefoot of Kelowna and Sherry-Lyn (Laverne) Lindberg of Leduc, Alberta; six grandchildren: Catherine Carefoot of Revelstoke, Sherron D’Andrea and Heather D’Andrea of Vernon, Darren (Lana) Carefoot and Brent (Chandra) Carefoot of Calgary and Gina Lindberg of Leduc; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Arrangements were in the care of Brandon Bowers Funeral Home, Revelstoke.
