Annie McMillan Morgan
Jan. 29th, 1911 – Mar. 21, 2011
Annie passed away peacefully at Stuart Pavilion, Mission, with members of her family at her side. She was predeceased by her husband Jim in 1989, and by her eldest son Jim Jr. (Eleanor) in 1992. She is remembered affectionately by her daughters Ann Philp, Jean Young, and Mary Frame (Gary), her son Tom (Carolyn), ten grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Annie was born on a Saskatchewan homestead to Scottish immigrants. She and her older brothers Bill and Tom were raised on a hard-scrabble farm near Dunfermline. After her marriage to Jim, they and their two children moved to B.C. in 1941. They raised their five children in Richmond, and were active in parent, church, and business groups. In 1964, they moved to Oliver, B.C., where they owned and operated the Marshall Wells store for six years. After her husband Jim passed away in 1989, Annie moved to Mission where she spent the last twenty-two years of her life.
Annie will be remembered for her curious mind, her steady moral compass, and her generosity to family and friends, as well as her love of gardening. A celebration of Annie’s long and fruitful life will be held on April 16 from 1-4 p.m., in the lounge at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, 8469 Cedar Street, Mission, B.C.
Special thanks to the staff at Stuart Pavilion for their dedication and compassionate care. No flowers please.
