BOYER, Anna May (née McEwen)

February 3, 1919 – November 28, 2015

Anna passed away peacefully at the age of 96 at Shaughnessy Care Centre in Port Coquitlam. Predeceased by her husband Cooke Wheeler Boyer, she is survived by her son Douglas (Elizabeth), daughter Heather, and two grandchildren, Warren (Shannon) and Suzanne (Brad). She is also survived by her sister Evelyn Timpe of Seattle. Anna was born on February 3, 1919, in her grandmother’s log cabin near Meeting Lake in Saskatchewan and moved to New Brunswick with her parents and sister in the 1930s. Here she met her husband Cooke where they married in Centreville, New Brunswick. Anna and Cooke moved to Toronto before finally moving to Port Coquitlam where they spent the rest of their lives. Anna was a home maker and worked at Trinity United Church in the thrift store for forty years. Anna will be remembered for her devotion to her family. She also loved to bake and she was an amazing gardener. In later years, she travelled extensively with her sister Evelyn and brother-in- law George.

The family wishes to thank the nursing staff at Shaughnessy Care Centre as well as Dr. Hacquebard (now retired) who was her doctor for many years.

Graveside service will be at Port Coquitlam Cemetery at 1:00 pm on December 11, followed by a memorial service and tea at 2:00 pm at Trinity United Church, 2211 Prairie Avenue, Port Coquitlam. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society would be gratefully appreciated.
