LONDON, Annette

Posted: October 13th, 2022

LONDON In deep sadness, we announce the passing of ANNETTE (WEST) LONDON with her loving husband Cecil at her side on 11 October 2022 at the Chinook Regional Hospital.
Born on 31 January 1939 in Lethbridge, to Clifford Dean West and Edna Inger Hill, Annette lived her entire life in Alberta surrounded by friends and family whom she cherished.
Of her immediate family, Annette was pre-deceased by her parents, her younger brother Rod, and her brother-in-law Evan Easthope, and is survived by her older sister Kaye Easthope and sister-in-law Isolde West.
In addition to Cecil, Annette is survived by her children Curt (& Lena), Heather (& Scott), and Chad (& Kenda); grandchildren Mackenzie (& Eric), Carling (& Dan), Luke, Connor (& Emily), Adia, and Trey; and great-grandchildren Dahlia, Max, and Isla.
An honours student and enthusiastic athlete, Annette grew up in Picture Butte. She became an accomplished keyboardist, and was frequently called upon to play the organ and piano at church.
As a student working at the Prince of Wales Hotel, Annette developed an affinity for spending time in Waterton National Park and a yearning to travel, a desire she fulfilled in later life when she and Cecil travelled widely with friends and family.
Annette attended the University of Alberta to qualify as a school teacher. She taught elementary classes fulltime in Stirling, Taber, and Drumheller, and later subbed in Lethbridge. She was approached throughout her life by adults expressing their gratitude for her efforts in their formative years. Having returned to university as a mature student, Annette inspired her own family and successfully encouraged her children and grandchildren to pursue post-secondary education.
Annette and her two faithful friends, Dorene Bullock and Gail Purnell, have been constant sources of mutual support over the past 40 years. Socially engaged, Annette contributed with Cecil to the community by volunteering in service activities of the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs. And, as a passionate sports fan, she was frequently met in the stands supporting local baseball and basketball teams.
Annette was a lifelong and devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She put her excellent organizational skills to good use in concert with her sympathetic and personable nature as a Primary teacher and as a leader in the Young Women’s and Relief Society organizations at the ward and stake level.
Annette’s life of service to her family, friends, and community will be forever admired and honoured.
A Funeral Service will take place on Saturday, October 15 at 11:00 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, LETHBRIDGE STAKE CENTRE, 2410 28 St. S. Lethbridge, AB.
Family and friends may meet with the family prior to the Service from 9:45 – 10:40 a.m.
Live stream available at the Salmon and Sons Website.
Refreshments from Noon – 1:00 pm
Interment will follow at the Stirling Cemetery.
