Elizabeth "Annette" Oslund (MacInnis)

March 23, 1936 - October 17, 2020

Tribute

In the early morning hours of Saturday, October 17, 2020 Elizabeth Annette Oslund passed away peacefully in Cranbrook with family by her side at the age of 84 years.  Dementia stole you from us ten years ago and God has now taken you home. Mom’s whole life was dedicated to her faith in God and her family. We take comfort in knowing that she has started her next journey, a journey she always talked about.

Annette was born in Florence, Nova Scotia on March 23, 1936 to Roderick and Florence MacInnis.

Our Mom, there are not enough words…not enough beauty, strength, heart or soul to describe our Mom. She had a vision that most people were blind to. Mom could see a lost soul and people’s pain…Mom would accept everyone and speak her truth. Mom’s love was … and is … encompassing.

Annette leaves behind her family to cherish her memory, her sons; Rod, Walter, Larry, Mark and Noel and their families as well as her daughters Christine, Benita and Jannette and their families.  She also leaves behind 35 grandchildren and 42 great grandchildren. Annette leaves four brothers as well, Rod, Farrell, Hughie and Tom.  Annette was predeceased by her husband, Roy, her parents Roderick and Florence MacInnis and nine siblings, Bill, John, Buddy, Elmer, Mary, Florence, Angeline, Viola and Emma.

A Family Memorial service for Annette will take place at a later date.  If friends desire, memorial donations may be made in Annette’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC, 235 1st Avenue, Suite 405, Kamloops, BC, V2C 3J4.

Till my trophies at last I lay down

And I will cling to the old rugged cross

And exchange it someday for a crown

So sorry to hear of your loss for you and the whole family was a wonderful woman I remember coming over couple times and she would invite me in to have a bite of food

From: Sylvia and Bill Johnston
Relation: Niece

I’ll forever hold your memory in my heart, Aunt Annette. I cherish the time you spent with us when we were little … you were our babysitter, playmate, entertainer and friend. As I grew older and you visited our family in Kingston, I was so proud that you, Aunt Vi and Mom would perform for me while I videotaped. It was so much fun. I can only remember happy times when you were around. I’ll love you forever! Rest in Peace, dear soul. We’ll meet again, when the roll is called up yonder, because you’ll always be my sunshine. Xoxoxoxo

So sorry to all of Anettes family. She was an amazing lady and a dear friend to my Mom. She was always there for anyone, no questions asked.
I am sure she will be playing bingo in heaven in no time with my Mom and a few of their other friends up there. God bless you all.
