Mrs. Anne Chiswick of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Les Chiswick, passed away peacefully at St. Michael’s Health Centre, on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at the age of 95 years.

Anne had served in WAAF 1941-1945 where she met and married Derek Martin. In her younger years, Anne enjoyed bowling, curling, and golfing. She was a beautiful knitter. Her afghans, baby blankets, sweaters and baby booties were family treasures. Later in life, she kept busy doing 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles and crosswords. Anne worked at Mayfair Vogue Ladies Wear for 9 years. Here she learned to dress immaculately from head to toe. This would include earrings. Being fiercely independent, Anne walked or took the bus everywhere, in any kind of weather. She loved her bus drivers as well as bus passengers and shared stories over coffee with many of them. Friday hair appointments were sacred and white wine was a dietary staple. Some of her happiest years were spent with her 2nd husband, Les Chiswick. They were married in Hawaii in 1982 and continued a happy life in Lethbridge. Les and his daughter Marianne completed her family. Sadly, Les passed away in 1986. We will miss our little red headed spitfire. Her spirited walk and quick wit will be remembered by all who knew her. Anne will be lovingly remembered by the Dale Martin family. Kay, Elizabeth (Gord) Jong; Dale Jr. (Colleen) Martin; Cathie Martin (Brian) Weersink and their families: also her beloved step daughter Marianne McBride of Calgary.
