Chernoff Anne

August 25, 1920 - January 15, 2013


Anne was born on August 25th, 1920 to Bill and Annie Barabonoff in Pelly, Saskatchewan. She was the older sister to her only sibling Fred.  Anne, her parents and brother Fred left Pelly and moved to Salmo, BC.

On December 29th, 1944 Anne married Pete Chernoff and together they made their permanent home in Salmo, BC. Pete worked at the Rotter Lumber Mill while Anne stayed back and tended to the household. Unfortunately they were never blessed with any children. In 1971, Pete passed away at the early age of 51.  Anne remained in Salmo and began caring for her mother Annie Barabonoff. On November 13th, 1984 Grandmother Barabonoff passed away and Auntie Ann remained in the town of Salmo.

Auntie kept busy and was very well known for her handy-crafts. When you walked into her house she had her crocheted doilies placed on the furniture and hung on the walls. Afghans with matching pillows laid everywhere. You knew that if you received a gift it would be one of those items that would be treasured forever.

In 1993, she made the move to Castlegar and bought herself a trailer near the “Banana” store (No Frills). There was no mistaking which home belonged to Anne. The flowers seemed to fill every square inch of her yard; but it was the Red Rose bush in the front that stood out the most.

Auntie spent her time singing with the Nelson Doukhobor Ladies Choir and traveling. She loved travelling but it was her trip to Russia that was the most memorable and would remain in her mind as some of the happiest moments spent in her life. She did take several other trips that included; the Oregon Coast, Laflin, Hawaii as well as the various bus trips exploring the countless gambling places in the state of Washington.

In 2011, Auntie was moved to Castle Wood Village. During her time there she made many friends and enjoyed an active social life.

On December 23rd, 2012 she was not feeling well and was admitted to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital. Due to complications of her illness she passed away peacefully on January 16, 2013 at the age of 92 years.

She is predeceased by her parents William and Annie Barabonoff, beloved husband Pete Chernoff and numerous ½ brothers and sisters.

She is survived by her brother Fred, countless nephews and nieces as well as many friends.
