September 12, 1954 ~ May 3, 2019

Ann Kappelman passed away in Medicine Hat on Friday, May 3, 2019, at the age of 64 years. Ann was born in Kerrobert, SK. and was raised in North Battleford, Burstall, and Abbey, SK. Thereafter, Ann moved to Medicine Hat. She made her home there for a number of years before her next move to Hawaii. In her 35 years there, Ann enjoyed every moment of sunshine she could! It was during this time that she worked for Hans at a job that provided her with the opportunity to travel the world. While working for Hans, they developed a strong father/daughter bond which continued when she moved back to Medicine Hat. In February of 2018, Ann moved back to Medicine Hat where she continued to reside until her passing. She had always lived her life to the fullest, had a fantastic sense of humour, and was always positive every time you saw her. Ann loved horses as well as bright, beautiful colours. Her love for colours was evident through the colours she used to paint her home… bright yellow, green and blue! Every moment in Ann’s life was filled with joy and enthusiasm and if it wasn’t there, she created it! Although small in stature, she commanded the attention of those in any room she entered with her big personality. Ann was a firm believer that it was vital to have 7 hugs a day and she always did her best to make sure those around her received theirs . She will live on in the hearts of her family; Toby (Ev), Ruth (Allen), Janice (Mike), Colin (Bonnie), Jay, Jascinta, Cameron George (Jemma), Kaitlyn, Conrad, and Jess. Ann was predeceased by her parents, Lloyd and Joan (Reg). Everyone Ann called ‘friend’ was truly thought of as a part of her family. She had so many friends whom she loved and who loved her, but the family would like to especially acknowledge Adelle. Private interment will be held at a future date.
