Anita Catherine Stanley (nee Potter)
November 25, 1926 – January 27, 2016
Anita passed away peacefully in her 89th year, with her family at her side at Peace Arch Hospital Wednesday evening. She will be lovingly remembered by all her friends and family, including husband of 66 years Emile, all of her children, Randolph, Stephen, late Mark, Karen, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her many nieces and nephews. Anita was born in Montreal, Quebec, and lived in South Surrey for the past 36 years. For the past year she (and Emile) were resident at Rosemary Heights Retirement Home. Always with a quick wit and sharp mind, Anita enjoyed a good party, entertaining family and friends for dinners, and chatting about world events. She loved to travel with Emile, brother Earle, and Jeff to England and Southern California. A memorial service and celebration of life will be held at 3:30 pm on February 12, 2016 at the Holy Cross Church, 12268 Beecher Street, South Surrey. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to Heart & Stroke Foundation, BC Lung Association, or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
