Anne Picton

March 14, 1934 – March 5, 2019
It is with great sadness that the family of Anne Picton, long time resident of Nelson BC, announce her passing on March 5, 2019.

Born March 14,1934 in Glade BC, Anne spent all of her life in the Nelson area. Anne was predeceased by her loving husband Alex in 2002, sister Paulette, mother Anastasia, and step father John.

A loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother and homemaker, Anne was a remarkable cook and will always be remembered for her special huckleberry tarts! Anne will also be remembered as an avid traveler with a true love for Hawaii, a special friend to many, her passion for country music, her beautiful garden and for enjoying long walks.

Anne was able to spend the last years of her life in her home thanks to the support of Nelson’s Home Care Services. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the home support staff for their great work.

Anne will be missed by her six children, Debra (Darcy) King, Sandra (James) White and John (Susan) Picton of Calgary, Lonnie (Craig) Herrling of Penticton and Warren and James Picton of Nelson. Anne will also be missed by her five grandchildren, Angela, Jamie, Jonathon, Matthew and Melanie, along with her six great-grandchildren, Chelsea, Leah, Kail, Carter, Banks and Nixon.

A Celebration of Life will take place later this summer.
