Anne Little

1938 - 2018

Anne's family is heartbroken to announce her passing on March 26 after a swift illness.

She is survived by her daughter Julie Green, daughter-in-law Janice McKenna and granddaughter Tiffany in Yellowknife: grandson Jordan (Christal) and great-granddaughter Alayah in Edmonton; as well as her family in England: sister Janet Goodenough (Richard), niece Jo and her children, her cousin Jean Bartlett (Bill); nephew Michael (Nienke) and his family in the Netherlands; friends in Yellowknife, Edmonton and Swift Current; and her furry companion Charlie.

The Green family immigrated to Canada from England fifty years ago,  They settled in Edmonton where they became enthusiastic citizens of their new country, enjoying the many opportunities it offered.  Anne became an insurance underwriter a career she continued until her retirement in 2007, the year she moved to Yellowknife to be with family.  Always a hard worker she began a new career in administration at McKenna Funeral Home when it opened in 2010.

Anne was energetic, a lifelong fan of the treadmill and swimming pool. She was independent, practical, exacting, impatient, and adventurous.  She loved to entertain with her dry sense of humour, She was a prolific and painstaking knitter of children's sweaters that she sold at the Christmas craft fairs, with the proceeds donated to charity.  She will be dearly missed.

Anne was predeceased by her son John in 2003.

The family is deeply appreciative to the staff of the Stanton Territorial Hospital for their kindness and compassion.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to the Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation.

There will be no service at her request.
