Margaret Anne Barrett (nee Wallace)

December 23, 1943 - March 8, 2022


Anne passed away peacefully on March 8, 2022, with her daughters by her side. She is survived by her loving daughters Jennifer (Ian) and Alison, granddaughters Megan, Sarah and Danielle, her brother Bruce (Monique) and sister-in-law Judy, along with her beloved extended family. Predeceased by her parents, Jack and Peggy, her brother David, husband Ron, and Jennifer and Alison’s dad, Lorne.

Anne had a deep faith in God and a genuine love for her family and friends. Born and raised in Victoria, Anne lived nearly her entire life in Oak Bay. She was a proud graduate of Oak Bay High School. She continued her education by completing her RN at the Royal Jubilee nursing program and her BSN at McGill University. She enjoyed her career in nursing, mostly as a Public Health Nurse in Victoria. Throughout these years, Anne developed many friendships which she lovingly maintained. She got so much joy from these connections, some of which go all the way back to her childhood. Anne was always actively involved and interested in the lives of her family and friends, her church and neighbourhood, but her most cherished role was that of Mom and Nana. Her pride and joy were her children and grandchildren, and she treasured her time and memories with them. In 2021 she moved to La Rosa Gardens in Ladysmith where she was thriving and was thrilled to be closer to her granddaughters.

A private celebration of life will be planned at a later date.

Relation: As a friend

Anne will always remain in my memory as a true and caring friend.
We first met at Oak Bay High and continued to share stories and connections off and on through many years.
We were able to continue our phone conversations and catch ups even during Covid.
I will truly miss her.

Relation: I first met Anne at Craigflower School where I was a teacher and she was the district nurse 53 years ago.

Anne was a lovely, caring person and she and I enjoyed a long time friendship.. We’ve kept in touch through many stages of both our lives. I am glad she had found a happy place to stay this last while, close to family and enjoying the friends she met there.
