WYLLIE, Mrs. Anne

Mar. 8, 1930 – Nov. 16, 2013

Mrs. Anne Wyllie (nee Mady) slipped peacefully away on November 16/2013 at St. Joseph Auxiliary Hospital in Edmonton at the age of 83 years. This marked the end of a fulfilled and virtuous life. She leaves, to mourn, her daughters Elaine (Syd Pallister), Paula (Jim Reiser) sons Bob (Elaine Maloney) and Mark (Joanne Wyllie) as well as her beloved sister Mildred Stecyk of Saskatoon; in laws, Loraine Wear of Concord, California and Russ Wiley of Saskatoon. Anne was blessed with 10 grandchildren, 1 great grandson, 2 great granddaughters as well as many nieces, great nieces and great nephews. She also leaves behind many dear friends, most notably in Alberta and Saskatchewan. She was predeceased by infant son Ricky in 1960 and husband George in 2008. Anne was born in 1930 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan the daughter of Ukrainian immigrant farmers (John and Mary Mady) and grew up and attended school in Glidden. Despite not speaking English when she started school, she persevered to become an honours student. Anne met her husband, George, who was also from the Kindersley area (Brock) and they wed in 1952. They moved to Edmonton, then Rimbey, where they grew a business and a family, before retiring back to Edmonton. Anne’s early introduction to agriculture helps to explain her near magical effect on all that grew inside and outside of her home. She was consumed with all things involving friends and family and had an undying interest in politics and world affairs. She was always keen to speak on all topics with friends, family, or even strangers. Anne’s family wish to invite all to attend a memorial reception celebrating her life to take place on Sunday December 1/2013 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Riverbend Community Center (258 Rhatigan Rd. East) in Edmonton. Memorial donations may be made to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.
