It is with heartfelt sadness that the family of Sarah Anne Cackett announces her passing peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.
Anne is survived by her sons, William (Connie) and Don (Sharon); her grandchildren, Collin (Sasha), Joseph (Paula) and Amanda (Mike); and five great grandchildren. She leaves behind her sister, Roberta and numerous relatives living in Ireland, England and New Zealand. She was predeceased by her husband, Albert and her granddaughter, Colleen.
Anne was born in County Cavan, Ireland, and attended Nursing School in England where she met Albert, the love of her life. They immigrated to Canada in 1954 and settled in Edmonton. She had a long career at the Royal Alexandra Hospital until her retirement. She loved the company of her grandchildren and loved holding all the newborns in her extended family. Anne enjoyed many close friends over the years.
Anne had always requested not to have a service upon her death, rather, asked to just take a moment to reflect on how she touched so many lives. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Anne’s charities, the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation and the University Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice.
