Anne Spragg

August 8, 1929 - January 7, 2014


It is with sadness that the family of Anne Spragg announce her passing on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at her home in Cranbrook, at the age of 84. Anne was born in Ootischenia, BC on August 8, 1929 to Pete and Molly Konkin. 

Anne grew up in Ootischenia, near Castlegar and moved to Fernie in 1969 with her family.  She lived there until 2010 then moved to Cranbrook to be close to her children and their families.  Anne worked at the Fernie hospital for many years until her retirement in 1994.  She loved her garden and always had something planted somewhere — she even grew a garden at their campsite at Koocanusa.  She loved camping and crocheting but most of all she loved her family and friends.

Anne belonged to the Salvation Army in Fernie and loved every minute of it.  She made many friends while there and this was the centre of her life at that time.

Anne is survived by her sons, Andy (Cindy), John and Brian Oglow, her brother Sam (Clara) Konkin, her grandchildren, Joel (Jenna), Kimberly and Melissa and two great granddaughters, Emily and Sadey.  She also leaves behind her niece Lori and nephew Patrick and their families.

She is predeceased by her parents, Pete and Molly Konkin, her brother Bill, her first husband Peter Oglow and second husband Joe Spragg.

We would like to thank Barb and Ken Cox from Cedar Ridge Manor for the care they provided to Anne.  They helped make her end of life so comfortable.  Thanks to all the home support staff who came and helped her on a daily basis, your caring and thoughtfulness is so appreciated.

There will be a family graveside service at Westlawn Cemetery in Cranbrook on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 1:30 pm.  Condolences may be left for the family at

To Anne’s family,I am Terry Spragg, a son of Anne’s second husband Joseph Spragg. My condolences to you.I first met Anne at her home in Fernie, BC in June 1995 when I flew from Ontario to Fernie to give the eulogy at my father’s funeral service. While staying for a few days at Anne’s home in that beautiful mountain-ringed valley, I had a chance to chat a lot with Anne.  I felt very welcomed and comfortable in her home. She was a very nice person.All the best to you.Terry.

Dear Andy and Brian Oglow,
Our deepest sympathies to you and your families on the passing of your Mother. We first met your Mom when she and my father came to New Brunswick for a visit back in the late seventies. I remember Anne was so friendly and I remember her wonderful sense of humour and being so down to earth. I was able to make a few visits to Fernie since then and always enjoyed my stays. We even went camping once. Although I haven’t been able to visit since my dad passed away, I had always hoped to get out there again. Your Mom will be greatly missed. Sincerely, Sandra and family
