Ann Foster

January 3, 1953 ~ May 6, 2022 (age 69)


Ann Roy (Blahy) Foster of Snow Lake, Manitoba passed away peacefully at the Thompson General Hospital on May 6, 2022, after courageously fighting years of cardiac related illness.  

Ann Foster, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and auntie passed away at the age of 69. Ann was born on January 3, 1953, in Atikokan, Ontario, and married John Foster on June 6, 1970. They resided in Atikokan, Ontario, until 1979 and relocated to Leaf Rapids, Manitoba, before settling in Snow Lake, Manitoba in 2002. They were incredibly rich in all the things that matter, and their unwavering love for each other was celebrated at their 50th wedding anniversary in 2020. Ann spent the last several years managing the Diamond Willow Inn in Snow Lake. She could always be found chatting with someone or lending a helping hand. Family was very important to Ann; despite her health, family kept her going, giving her the will and determination to make it to that next occasion. Her family is eternally grateful for how long she was able to hold on and for the memories that they were able to share because of her courage and strength.

Ann will be greatly missed by her husband of 52 years, John Foster of Snow Lake; daughter BobbiLynn Peddle (Claude Joy) of Cranberry Portage; grandchildren Jaida (Dauphin, MB) and Parker (Sky) Peddle of The Pas; and two brothers Mike (Sonya) and Rod (Tammy) Blahy of Winnipeg. She will also be tremendously missed by her nieces and nephews: Andrew and Heidi Blahy of Winnipeg, Jennifer (Lance) McKinna of Brandon, Candace (Joel) Ostash of Shoal Lake, Kyle (Laura) Blahy of Whitehorse, Yukon, Andrea (Darcie) Manns of Killarney, and Shauna Blahy of Shoal Lake, as well as her 8 great nieces and nephews, and many, many friends. She was proceeded in death by her parents, Sam and Ann Blahy.
