Ellen Ann Schwarz
With saddened hearts, we announce the extraordinary loss of Ann Schwarz of Airdrie, Alberta on Wednesday April 19, 2023 at the age of 71. Ann was born and resided in Calgary, Alberta for the majority of her life. She later moved to Airdrie, Alberta where she spent most of her retirement years.
Ann is survived by her son Jason, daughter-in-law Serena, grandson Adam, daughter Jessie, son-in-law Chris, and granddaughters Adriyana, Bella, Frankie, and Lily. Ann is also survived by her sister Karen and Pat, and brother Kelly.
Ann was passionate about baking, decorating and gardening. Ann loved any holiday season and would be sure to always have decor out along with a meticulously wrapped gift for anyone she cared for. Family and friends could count on a fresh batch of cookies laid out on her kitchen counter too. Ann had a great love for animals, particularly her cat of 18-years, GEM. She had a special connection with every one of her furry companions that she met along her path. Ann's grandchildren were so very special to her. She had a unique bond with each of them, they were her greatest loves in life!
Ann was a quiet, caring, giving woman who made many special lifelong friendships. She enjoyed chatting on the phone, and you would almost always catch yourself spending an hour or so having conversation and sharing laughs with her. Ann had a wonderful sense of humour and all that knew her will miss her company and those phone calls dearly.
The family would like to thank all of the wonderful caring staff at Ridge Meadows Hospital and McKenney Creek Hospice for the incredible care and compassion given to Ann and her family in her final days.
