Annie Marie (Annie) Ramier was born on July 22, 1996 at the B.C. Women’s Hospital and peacefully passed away on Oct. 19, 2006 in Williams Lake at the tender age of 10. Annie and her mom Jan lived in Baker Manor where they were blessed to have many great friends and neighbours.
Annie spent three years attending the Cariboo-Chilcotin Child Development Centre going to play time therapy and preschool.
Upon graduation from preschool Annie enrolled at Ecole Marie Sharpe elementary.
She was in Grade 5 this year and had gone to school with several of the children since Kindergarten. She was blessed to have the help of Robin, Lucy and Laura throughout her school years to care for her and keep her involved in all activities.
Annie was always happy to go to school and looked forward to ‘Betty Bus’ coming in the morning to pick her up.
She loved the way the other children and teachers stimulated her to do things. She was an inspiration to all of us and a very good teacher herself.
After a very trying spring with spine surgery and infections she bounced right back and had a wonderful summer smiling and laughing all the time. She was a very contented child who loved to be read to. And music was a big part of her life.
Annie is survived by her mom Jan, her grandparents Marj and Alan Blair of Williams Lake; Fern and Carl Prince of Woodstock, Ontario; and Tom and Nettie Ramier of Washington State.
She is also survived by several aunts, uncles and cousins from all across Canada. Annie also leaves behind many friends whom she touched deeply and will miss her dearly.
A celebration of life was held for Annie on Friday, Oct. 27, 2006 at the Seniors’ Activity Centre.
In Annie’s memory, donations can be made to the 139 Children’s Fundraising Society of the British Columbia Children’s Hospital.
