HARRIS: Anne Margaret Harris (nee Vergonet). August 1, 1919- March 12, 2013. Anne, a 93 year old WWII veteran, passed peacefully in her sleep at Mountain View Manor in Ladner, BC. where she had resided since July 2009. Dearly loved and supported by her husband Darrel Leroy, son Darrel Raymond, daughters Margaret and Lyndamae, granddaughter Lee Anne, daughter-in-law Jean, friends Anke, Gloria and Donna, Anne survived 10 years with dementia…but never forgot the names and faces of those she loved so unconditionally. Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1919, Anne was the eldest of 8 children. She was predeceased by her brother John, and sisters Lynne, Margaret and Cornelia. Sisters Trudy, Frances and Joan live in BC. Anne enlisted in the army in 1941 and worked in the pay office. While there she made two discoveries. The first being that it was more fun to give the orders than to receive them. The second was meeting Darrel Leroy Harris who fell in love with her at first sight. They were married in 1943 and had 3 children by 1952. The family moved back and forth between Manitoba and Alberta living in Winnipeg, Magrath, Binscarth, Rivers, Taber and back to Rivers. In 1997 Anne and Darrel moved to Ladner B.C. While her children were at home, Anne continued her own music training on piano and organ and taught hundreds of students on both instruments until she was 77. For over 20 years she was the organist for the United Church. When the family nest was empty, Anne taught music at Brooks School then turned her passion for reading into a mammoth project - starting a library in the Town of Rivers. Doors to the Prairie Crocus Regional Library first opened on 1971 and have remained open ever since. Anne’s other passions were canning and craft work. The cold cupboard was always gleaming with colourful jars of preserves, fruits and soups. Many lovely embroidered pictures were framed, hundreds upon hundreds of mittens were knitted and sent to needy families, prize-winning quilts were stitched by hand, rugs and cushions hooked, aprons, pot holders and furniture covers were sewn, rag dolls were crocheted and on and on. Her hands remained steady and sure; she continued knitting until 4 weeks before her death. Some of her other claims to fame include riding an elephant in Thailand when she was 70, riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle on her 80th birthday and winning the heart of her husband several times over. Anne’s family would like to express heartfelt thanks to Dr. Ken Lai as well as to the many caring and compassionate staff at Heritage House, Kinsmen and Mountain View Manor. In lieu of sending flowers please consider making a donation to a charity of your choice.
