Maskerine, Anne

Date of Death: January 6, 2019

Obituary

On January 6, 2019 Anne Maskerine passed away peacefully at Mountain Lake Seniors Community in Nelson, B.C. at the age of 99.

Anne was born in Ericksdale, Manitoba on March 28, 1919 and as a girl lived in North Pine Mines and later, Sioux Lookout Ontario where she lived until the age of 73 when she moved to Nelson, B.C.

During the war, Anne worked at the Canada Car and Foundary in Fort William, where thousands of women donned trousers, packed lunch pails and took up rivet guns to participate in the largest industrial war effort in Canadian history, building fighter and bomber aircrafts needed in the 2nd World War.

In 1943, Anne married Peter Maskerine.  They had two children, Peter and Anna.

Anne had a love of music and was a gifted musician.  At a young age, she discovered she could play most any instrument and was self taught in playing the accordion, piano and organ.  She played in numerous bands;  The Legroes Orchestra, Sioux Rhythm Girls and the Ross Keenan Orchestra.

Anne was a steadfast and dedicated volunteer with the Ladies Auxiliary to Royal Canadian Legion, the Hospital Auxiliary and the Seniors Centres in both Sioux Lookout and Nelson.

Anne was a skillful cook and loved making meals and Swedish specialties for family.  Nieces still remember her unforgettable baking, most notably her jelly roll.

Anne is predeceased by her husband (Peter), all of her siblings and one grandchild (Desmond).

She was extremely proud of her family and never missed an opportunity to share a picture or talk about them.

She is survived by her daughter Anna (Laurie) and son Peter (Terry), her grandson Christian (Nicole) and her two great granddaughters (Nevaiya and Nya).

Although Anne was an extremely humble and modest woman, it cannot go unsaid that she was an outstanding person, the most wonderful mother and grand mother; she was strong, thoughtful and nurturing, friendly and kind to everyone, easy going, polite and well mannered;  a woman of class and exceptional character.

Anne will be laid to rest with her late husband and grandson in Sioux Lookout, Ontario.

The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Janz, nurses Glenda and Luze and all the staff at Mountain Lakes for their care during her time there.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Nelson Community Services (Aimee Beaulieu Transition House). You can donate at the following link https://www.servicesfyi.ca/donate-now/, and their physical address 201-518 Lake Street, Nelson BC V1L 4C6.
