Wallace, Anne Cooper – 87, of Wallace Bridge, passed Thursday, May 30, 2019 at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre, Amherst.

Anne started working at the Cumberland Home (now the Sunset Community) at the age of 17 and continued to nurse at several places as well as private duty nursing.

She was an avid quilter and was a member of the Sunrise Quilt Guild. She loved to knit and sew and loved keeping in touch with family and friends on the computer. She also loved to sing alto and was a member of the Northumberland Choral and several other church choirs. Family was very important to her and she instilled that in each of her children.
