Anne B. (Fraess) Payne
October 10, 1929 – June 13, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our wife, mom, grandma, great-grandma and Auntie Anne of pancreatic cancer at the age of 89. She was born in Carmel, Saskatchewan. The second last survivor in her family of 9 children of parents Rose Klashinsky and Bernard Froess. She is survived by her sister Agnes (Buster) Molohon, her daughter Cheryle (Gary) Brandner of Kelowna, BC and her son Kevin (Pat) Payne of Parkland, Alberta, son-in-law Allan Maillot of Calgary, as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She was just recently deceased by her beloved husband William (Bill) Payne on May 28 this year, her daughter Patricia Ann Maillot in 2016 and her grand-daughter Jessi in 2005.
Anne worked and had many friends through her many years at Woodward’s in the MacLeod Room and then went on to work for many more years at The Cash Office of the Calgary Co-op on Richmond Road in Calgary. After retirement, she enjoyed her favourite past-time of cooking and baking for her family and friends who all enjoyed her delicious cinnamon buns and butter tarts immensely, along with anything else she made which always included sugar on top. She was such a tasty cook she could have easily turned it into a very lucrative business but she chose just to do it for love of friends and family. Mom most recently was enjoying crafting and playing bingo with her many friends at Porcupine Hills Lodge.
A big thank you to the wonderfully caring doctors and nurses at the Claresholm General Hospital who cared for both dad and mom in their time of need. What a wonderful group of special angels they are. The family will hold a small family dinner in remembrance of Anne at a later date.
