Tribute

Ann Tarasoff

Ann Tarasoff nee Faminoff passed away peacefully on February 14th, 2011 at Mountain Lake Seniors Community in Nelson BC at the age of 93.

Ann was born on March 4th 1917 in Lundbreck, Alberta and grew up on a farm just outside of Cowley Alberta. In 1935 she met Nick Tarasoff and they were married in January 1936. Their union was to last for more than 63 years.

They settled with Nick’s parents in Herronton, Alberta and along came two sons, John and Misha. In 1948 they moved to Calgary where Ann studied to become a seamstress. Ann was very active in the peace and labor movements, the Federation of Russian Canadians (FRC) and The Association of United Ukrainian Canadians (AUUC) and remained active and supportive all her life. After moving to Victoria BC in 1967 Ann even ran for city council.

In the late 70’s both their sons moved to Vancouver so Ann decided that they should as well. In 1987 they moved to Nelson BC, where they bought a home and lived the rest of their lives doing what they loved, gardening and having relatives and family come for visits. They were happiest when there was a house full of visitors.

Ann is predeceased by her husband Nick and her son John and is survived by her son Misha, daughter-in-law Marlene, sister Mary and brother Joe, sister Nettie, daughter-in-law Ruby, two grandchildren Darrin and Shelly three great grandchildren Carl, Emily and Jeremy and a number of nieces and nephews.

On Friday Feb.25th at 2PM there will be a communal service for those residents of Mountain Lake Seniors Community who have passed away this month including Ann at MLSC 908 Eleventh. A celebration of her life will be held later in the year when her cremated remains will be placed along with her husband Nick. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to the Mountain Lake Seniors Society for use of their many programs for seniors.

We thank all of the staff of Mountain Lake Seniors Community for the loving care and attention that Mother was given.
