July 4, 1915 – March 28, 2010
Our dear and much loved Auntie Anne passed away on March 28, 2010. Born on July 4, 1915 (she’d be cheesed off we published her date of birth) in Phoenix, British Columbia, Anne was the last in the line of “Princeton Plecash’s”, being predeceased by her sister Mary and brothers Nick, Mike, Eli, Ike, John and Myles.
She is survived by many nieces, nephews, grand and great-grand relatives. Anne was a fiercely independent woman with unambiguous values and who said exactly what she thought. She was our constant in a changing world. Anne lived most of her life in Princeton, but travelled across Canada and into the U.S. (to include New York) as a young woman when it was quite a scandalous thing for a young single woman to do. She returned to the Plecash homestead in Princeton and maintained the family home into her late 80’s.
Anne was a woman of simple pleasures and great dignity. She had an amazing work ethic, a steadfast commitment to family and a wry sense of humour that shone into her final days. She was a spectacular cook, her vegetable garden was legendary, and she would not hesitate to drive great distances just to get a good bargain.
She will be greatly missed and forever loved.
The family would like to thank Tina, Anne’s companion, and the caring staff at Summerland Seniors D Unit.
Interment is to be held at 1:00 p.m. in the
Princeton Cemetery on July 10, 2010,
with a celebration of Anne’s life to follow.
