It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ann Patricia Lawrence, who passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, June 30th, 2024, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, at the age of 69 years.  Ann was born on October 28th, 1954, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  Ann grew up in large family, which instilled values of hard work and resilience, along with a generous and compassionate spirit.  Ann’s life was marked by her kindness, strength, and profound love for her family and friends.  She was a strong and independent woman, and an active participant in the fight for equality, helping pave the way for women and the LGBTQ community.  She had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to spend time laughing with family and friends.  Ann had a deep love for art, drama, fishing, travel and animals. 

She was predeceased by her father, Tom; mother, Margret; brothers: Tom, Paul, Bobby, and Kirby; sisters, Cathy and Susan; and brother-in-law, Bud.  Ann is survived by her partner, Penelope Pearson, as well as many other loving family members and friends.  Ann’s legacy will live on through the many lives she impacted.  Her memory will be cherished by all who knew and loved her.
