Annie was a great neighbour and my mom (Ilabelle) thought a lot of her!
Sad Condolences to the Hall Family in the passing of Annie. She and Les were great long life friends of the Everett and Aleta Marsh family. We remember many of their happy visits and outings. Barbara and Pat were playmates with both my brother and myself in our younger years. We have many good memories playing about the farm and in Brigden. Memories that will not be forgotten.
We are so sorry to hear that Aunt Annie has passed. Karrie and I have lots of great memories. May the memories you carry with you, bring you comfort in the days ahead. Thinking of you all, Love Karrie and Kelly.

Lynda. Ron & Families.
Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mom. Annie was a very special person. kind and caring to all that she met and we will forever treasure the memories of the time and friendship we shared together with her
LOVE AND GO ON
You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back, or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left.
Your heart can be empty because you cannot see her, or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what she would want:
SMILE, LOVE, AND GO ON.
So Sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Annie and Les were such a wonderful couple. Phil and I have fond memories of them both. Your mom was always interested in the boys we adopted.This was a comfort and a support for us.
Dear Lynda and Ron. Our thoughts are with you at this time. As a child I remember such good times with our cousins ,the Piggotts. Later Paul and I always enjoyed visiting with your Mom and Dad.
Lynda & Ron:
We were sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed by everyone who knew her. We had some good times with Les and Annie during their time served on Enniskillen council. We often reminisce about our trip together to a conference in Ottawa and also our visits when camping at Cathcart Park. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this time.
So very sorry to hear Annie has passed, she was truly a special and sweet lady. I will always remember how great she treated me as a kid hanging around with Ron. Later in life when I took my kids around on Halloween, Annie and Les always made a big fuss with my kids and made them feel special.
My sincere condolences to Lynda and Ron and families.
Lynda, Ron, & families
I am sorry for your loss of your wonderful Mom. Annie was always a mainstay along the 2nd line. As children, we knew we were always welcome at your place, and your Mom always made special treats for all who arrived. I especially remember the chocolate icing fingers!! I had the fortunate opportunity to see Annie, along with you, Lynda, last summer at Olive’s Restaurant. where we reminisced about life along the 2nd line, and so many memories were brought to the fore. Your Mom’s voice had not lost it’s youthfulness, nor its lilt, as she recounted so many happenings, and all nine siblings in my family, in order! And she knew where all of us currently live. I know your sorrow is great and for that I offer you my condolences. I recall at your Dad’s funeral that Pat quoted from ‘The Prophet’….”When you are sorrowful look deep into your heart and you will see that in truth that you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
Again, I am so sorry for your loss of your Mom. May she rest in peace with your Dad and Pat.
Of all the wonderful Residents I have had the pleasure of meeting here at Masonville Manor, Annie was absolutely loved by all!!! Last Summer she participated in ALL our events and outings here. Everything and every body was in her words ” Precious” I have many wonderful pictures of her from learning how to Hula to her and that wonderful hat she wore to our Tea Parties. Annie Hall you will be forever a hand print on my Heart………Love you to pieces Patty
Sorry to hear of your Mothers passing.She was a wonderful caring lady and a dear friend to my Mother
Jack & Ruthann: On behalf of my daughter Mary Brown and myself may we extend out deepest sympathy in the loss of your sister. In our thoughts and prayers as you face the days ahead!
Deepest Sympathy in the passing of your Mom, she was quite a lady, have many good memories of her growing up.
Nancy and I wish to express our condolences to the family. We sang in the choir at Brigden United Church with both Les and Annie.
