Raymond and Aoibhe

I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with Anne in CSL and I liked her very much, she always had a smile and we shared many conversations, she spoke of you both frequently and with much love. It was a pleasure to work with her and get to know her.
My thoughts are with your family.

Raymond, Aoibhe and Hebert family

We are deeply distressed to hear of Anne's passing R.I.P. The happiness we have had in the company of Anne, Raymond and Aoibhe on their visits to Ireland every summer will be forever in our thoughts. We both enjoyed her friendship and generous hospitality on our visits to Canada. We so looked forward every Sunday to seeing her cheerful smile on Facetime. We are devastated.

Love John and Maria Jess xxx

I'm so sorry to hear about Anne's passing.
As a former co-worker of hers at the CSL Library, I remember how she brightened many of my days with her charm, kindness, and natural humour.
My heart goes out to to you, her family and loved ones.

Raymond, Aoibhe and family

Please accept my condolences on the passing of Anne. We shared many moments while working together at CSL Public Library. Those of us who had the joy and privilege to have known Anne, remember what a warm and wonderful human being she was, always ready to help. I cannot think of her without remembering her kindness, and above all her excellent humor.

My heart and prayers are with you at this very sad time.

Maria Luisa G. Morales, July 17, 2017

Raymond and Aoibhe

My deepest condolences to both of you. Anne was such a lovely person. I enjoyed working with her at Côte Saint-Luc, she always had a smile on her face and was full of laughter. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Jennifer Eisman, July 17, 2017

The Hebert Family

I worked with Anne at the CSL Library. She was a lovely person and so proud of her daughter. Quite often, members of the public would ask to speak specifically to her as she had been so helpful to them. This says a lot about her patience and kindness with the people coming to the Library. My deepest condolences on your loss.

Lisa Milner, July 17, 2017

Raymond, Aoibhe and family

I am so sorry to hear that such a bright soul has left this world. Anne was a wonderful friend and colleague and she will be missed. Sending you condolences, love and strength in this difficult time.

Raymond and the Hebert Family

I met Anne when she was 17. We kept in contact through all of these years. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I visited her in Ireland and in Montreal. She was very dear to me and I am very sad to hear of her passing. My condolences to Raymond and the Hebert family. She will be sorely missed.

Andre Logan, July 17, 2017

Raymond and Aoibhe

I was so sorry to hear of Anne's passing. She will live on in your fond memories of her. I know what it's like to lose a much loved partner. It was so nice to speak to you in person on the phone. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love, Betty.

Betty Moroney, July 17, 2017

Hebert Family

I am so sorry to hear this. I had the pleasure to work with Anne in CSL and she was an amazing lady. Always had a smile and was easy to talk to. She helped me get through some hard times just with her talks. She will be greatly missed by all those who were lucky to have ever worked with her. My heart goes out to all of you.

Eden Burger , July 17, 2017

Raymond and Aoibhe

I will miss Anne so much, words cannot begin to express. She was kind hearted, generous and hilarious- one of the best storytellers I've met in my life who often made me laugh until my sides hurt. Anne was a dear friend and a bright light in my life, and I will always keep her in my thoughts.
My deepest sympathies to Aoibhe, Raymond and family.

Emily CHasse, July 17, 2017

Raymond, Aoibhe and Hebert family

This news broke my heart and I am sorry for your loss. Anne and I both started working at CSL at the same time, and she was a great co-worker and a friend. We had many great discussions about her life, her travels, her family and her daughter. She encouraged me to push my boundaries and to travel the world while I am still young. I am grateful of her advice and of the friendship we shared. She had the gift to make anyone smile and to bring joy to anyone's day. May you take comfort in knowing that she had left many who will not forget her.

Hebert and Jess family

I'm sorry for your loss. I worked with Anne at CSL and she was a friend. She had a wicked sense of humour and her kindness knew no bounds. I will miss her. My thoughts are with you and yours.

Lisa de Grandpre, July 18, 2017

Raymond, Aoibhe, and the Hébert family

We were truly lucky to have Anne as part of our Ottawa Public Library family, if only for a short time. Her genuine passion for serving the community, her compassion for colleagues and customers, and her generous and kind spirit, will be missed. She made a difference in our workplace in such a short time, and our hearts are broken. Thinking of all of you, and wishing you comfort and courage.

Alexandra Yarrow, July 18, 2017

Raymond, Aoibhe, and the Hebert Family

Anne was only in my life for a few short weeks her at OPL, and yet she made me feel like we had been friends forever. Drawn to her personality, and her quick wit, she always made me feel equal and appreciated. I was shocked when I heard the news of her passing, and I felt bereft of the friendship that could have been. My heart goes out to the entire family in this time.
Aoibhe, know that your mom will always be with you. Watching and guiding, gently letting you know of her presence. Treasure the small breezes on a windless day, or those unexpected scents that seem to come from nowhere, for those are your mother’s kisses.

Raymond and Aoibhe

I am so sorry your loss and for the world's loss. Anne was an amazing person, with whom I had the pleasure of working at the Neuro and at the CSL library. Anne was the kindest, funniest, loveliest person. She had a sarcastic streak, without ever being unkind. I will miss her and always remember her.

Alisa Soukhodolskaia, July 18, 2017

Raymond, Aoibhe and Alexandra Stermer

Though I did not know Anne, I wish I had. I am an employee of OPL and looked forward to meeting her, a great friend of Alexandra's. I hope fond memories will one day heal your broken hearts.

Ma chère Anne,

Voici un dernier petit mot qui témoigne de ta présence dans ma vie (et celle d'Adeel, pendant ce dernier mois).
Pendant le mois que tu as habité avec nous (Adeel et moi), tu as été un rayon de soleil dans nos vies. Une femme extraordinaire, Avec tant d'empathie, de gentillesse et un sens de l'humour incroyable! Je t'admire tellement, Anne! C'était vraiment un honneur de t'avoir dans ma vie, depuis l'enfance. J'entends encore ta voix, ton rire. Je te vois assise à notre table, toute souriante, si passionnée lorsque tu nous parlais d'Ancestry! Anne tu vas me manquer énormément. C'est l'humanité qui pert un être exceptionnel.
À toute, la famille, je partage votre douleur. Je vous transmet mes sincères condoléances.

Anne was with us at the Ottawa Public Library for such a brief time and yet her warmth and openness made an immediate and deep impact. I can 'see' Anne's smile so clearly. Please accept my shared sadness at your heartbreaking loss.

Anne travaillait dans le bureau à coté du mien, mais on se voyait souvent au courant d'une journeé de travail. Comme Anne, j'habite à Gatineau et elle m'a demandé de l'information sur des sujets comme l'impots et l'horaire d'autobus. Une dame très gentile et tojours un grand sourire. Mes sympathies.
