Anne Vezina

December 24, 1928 ~ February 26, 2020

Anne Vezina passed away on February 26, 2020, in her 92nd year, with family members watching over her at Whitehorse General Hospital.

She was born on December 24, 1928 in Carrot River Saskatchewan and was the youngest of 13 children (all predeceased). At the young age of 23, Anne adventured north to the Yukon via ferry and the WPY Railway from Skagway to Whitehorse. Here she met and married her husband of 53 years, Bert Vezina (predeceased). Together they had 5 children, all born in Whitehorse.

Anne will be remembered as someone who absolutely loved cooking and baking for whoever she could feed. She was at home in the outdoors, being an avid gardener and a super camper back in the day!

Anne never complained about life’s challenges, always choosing to find the best in all people and situations, and you could always hear singing during most everything she did. It was a good day if there was ice cream and chocolate!

Anne devoted her life to her husband, her family and God.

Anne will be sadly missed by her loving children: Brian (Dorothy) Comox, B.C., Barbara (Dave) Whitehorse, Greg (Maureen) Surrey, B.C., Jeffrey (Gloria) Surrey, B.C. and Terri of Whitehorse. Also survived by her 3 grandsons, Daniel, Jeremiah and Joshua of Surrey, B.C. Special mention to Pam Neish (deceased), Deb and Ed Keenan and their sons Edward Jr. (Jody) and Jonathon who have been a much loved and cherished part of Anne’s extended family.

A celebration of Anne’s life will follow this summer.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to Share Magill for her years of dedicated service and friendship to Anne. Thank you to the staff at Whitehorse General Hospital for your compassion and for taking such great care of our mom.

    Anne was the best mother-in-law in the whole world. I am so fortunate to spend time with her. She was the most kind, patient, happy person. I wish I could be like her one day. Miss you, Mom and I love you.

    So very sorry to hear of your loss. It has been many years back to our childhood I remember your Moms great warm hugs…her apple pies and those crazy drives into the cottage in the land rover. Packing the logs with spruce gum and moss, having black hands for a week after. Your Mom telling us not scream when the mice ran over mine and Barbs sleeping bags..that we were scaring the poor little creatures….and to save it for the bears! She was such a caring and sweet lady. I am sure she was well loved and will be missed.
