  2. Tim, Amanda and family. I was so saddened to hear of Amanda’s passing. I know she fought long and hard. My condolences go out to each and everyone of you. Her smile and laughter will live on with all of us.

  3. Dear Tim and Amanda,
    We were devastated to hear of Annette’s passing, we are summer people, however I was able to first connect with Annette in 95 , we had just built a cabin. I am in food sales and I think our first interaction was selling pizza shells to Annette. We became causal freinds along with my, wife Mary. We both came to love Annette for her energy, smarts, and laughter. When I got “hi Brent “. from Annette, I felt like I was at Home in the shuswap Even if I was away for 6 months. I have seen few people with such a combination of positive outlook and so much great, energy.Business smarts and a great sense of humour. We are going to miss our friend Annette very very much. Much love, Brent & Mary Smith

  4. So sorry to hear the sad news of her passing away. She was a wonderful person whom I met back in 1989 in her first store with her former husband Bruce. My deepest condolences to the family and to Tim her husband

  5. Annette is one of those people that when you meet them for the first time they make an impression on you. From the first time we met at the race track she had us with her wit,humor and intelligence. Never one to be at a loss for words, Annette made it easy to be friends with her. She opened up our world to fine wines and always had a fantastic recommendation for us to go along with our dinner. We will miss her deeply.

    Much love and heart felt condolences go out to Tim, Amanda and family at this time.

  7. I went to school with Annette in Kamloops. I am so sorry for your loss.

  8. Tim, Amanda and family,
    My sincerest condolences at this sad time. Annette is, and will remain, one of the most joyous people I have ever met. Her intelligence and mindfulness taught me a great deal over the past few years and I will miss her greatly. Thank you Annette for teaching me how much better BC VQA is vs that American stuff at your store’s anniversary a few years ago. I will open that special bottle I bought a few years ago and share a glass with you, and in your memory. Prayers for you and your wonderful family. Cathwyn

  9. Tim Amanda and family, Brenda and I were saddened to hear of your loss. Although we are only summer residents of the North Shuswap we have looked forward for years to our summer visits with Annette. We will miss her knowledge and her warm smile.

  12. Tim, Amanda and family,
    So so sorry to hear the sad news. Annette was so strong, so determined, full of life, an amazing woman. We will always remember her wonderful personality, beautiful smile and willingness to help everyone. She will be truly missed. North Shuswap has lost an icon.
    Our hearts go out to you all. With our deepest sympathy, Martin & Julie Lucas. Magna Bay.

  13. If I had to choose one word to describe Annette it would be ‘dynamo’. She had this enthusiasm for life and the tasks at hand that was completely infectious and transcended her diminutive stature.
    Her entrepreneurial spirit was an inspiration to all business minded people and a strong role model for young women looking to start their own businesses.
    One of the things we admired about Annette was that you never had to wonder where she stood on an issue. She was always honest and outspoken. I had the pleasure to see this first hand at many Western Grocers/Loblaws franchise meetings.
    Through the years my wife Kate and I had the pleasure of getting to know Annette and Tim, and later Amanda at Loblaws conventions. We look back fondly on the times we were able to spend with them. The conventions will certainly not be the same without Annette’s infectious smile and larger than life personality.

    Our deepest condolences to her family, friends and community at large.

    Annette had an indomitable spirit that was a gift to us all; more precious than any material gift.
    May her entrepreneurial, indomitable, philanthropic and kind spirit rest in peace.

  14. Our thoughts are with all the family during this very difficult time. Annette was an amazing woman and will be remembered forever by all of us who knew and loved her.

  15. Annette – the little organizer – ask and you receive ten times more than expected. She put a smile on my face every time I called on her. Her journey was a tough one and I am so sad that it was cut short. I know that she would have still been putting together a wine event or a in-store event or anything that brought people together. Her fight was truly Annette – never ever give up – so I am sad but to know she is at rest but still keeping track of us. She gave until there was no more to give – so rest young lady.

  16. TIm and Amanda and family, we are so very very sorry to hear of Annette’s passing, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Lorne and Joan Sage l

  17. I’m so sad to hear this news. Me and my family are thinking of you-it is a hard time!
