Bruce and Annetta started their life in Stratford and their family in Sudbury, where Bruce was stationed with the OPP and Annetta worked at the Royal Bank of Canada. The family returned to Stratford in 1967 to be closer to Annetta’s parents where she later returned to work at the Royal Bank. She enjoyed volunteering at Beta Sigma Phi, Stratford Association for Community Living and the Sister Cities Committee through her and Bruce’s longtime affiliation with the Perth County Pipe Band, formerly the RCR Pipe Band.
She had many wonderful travel experiences with friends and family over the years both internationally and across Canada. With a passion for music, Annetta loved singing in choirs including Centennial and Parkview United Churches and the Stratford Concert Choir. Annetta was a skilled seamstress and enjoyed creating needlework pieces for herself and as cherished gifts.
