Ann was predeceased by her husband, Peter Vetter in 2008; her parents, John and Marion Boser; five brothers; and two sisters. Ann was born on the family farm near Reward, located in the Unity District, Saskatchewan. It was there that she grew up and attended the one-room school nearby. After her schooling, she worked on various farms in the district as a housekeeper. Ann met her future husband, Pete, in the Reward area and they were married there on October 14th, 1946. They lived in Reward until 1960, when they moved to Medicine Hat. In 1968, Ann went to work at the Medicine Hat Hospital employed as a dietary aid until 1979. Ann’s passions in her long and active life were her family, preparing everyone’s goodies when visiting, gardening, crocheting and lengthy long-distance calls with her sisters. Ann and Pete’s retirement years were spent at home in their park-like backyard enjoying Medicine Hat’s lovely summer weather, visits with their many family members, and enjoying each other’s company. In 2014, Ann moved to Meadowlands Retirement home where she remained until the time of her passing.
