MACDOUGALL _ Annette, Helen (nee Ainslie) of Vancouver and Calgary, beloved wife of John
Finlay Macdougall, passed away peacefully on November 8, 2004 of ALS. She had incredible
inner strength, faced her daily battles with dignity and always showed her wonderful
smile. She was predeceased by her mother in 1988, and previously by her father and
sister in 1961 and 1964, both from ALS. In addition to her husband John, she leaves a
great number of relatives and friends whom she treasured throughout her life. Annette
was born in Calgary in 1929 where she received her education and worked for several oil
service companies and the Alberta Wheat Pool. She opened the Calgary Office for Texas
Gulf Sulphur in 1959 and remained with the company until she took early retirement after
her marriage. During her years in Calgary she was an enthusiastic member and supporter
of the Youth Hostel Association and the Alberta Historical Society. May 2, 1964 marked
the beginning of a busy and loving marriage to John. While in Calgary and after moving
to Vancouver in 1982 they traveled the world together both on company business and on
holidays. Friends and family eagerly looked forward to her annual Christmas letters.
Annette loved the mountains and the company of good friends. Her personality and
enthusiasm for life were an inspiration to everyone. John wishes to thank the following:
the ALS Clinic for their help and support and the loan of essential equipment; the
Provincial Respiratory Outreach Program for the loan of a BIPAP (portable breathing
machine) that enabled Annette to remain comfortable at home; the Canadian Red Cross for
a pressure mattress: the 3 Bridges nurses and others of the Home Hospice Team for their
support and Dr. Brad Fritz for his exceptional care. Most importantly I'd like to thank
Annette's caregivers from Nurse Next Door, with special thanks to Anita who kept Annette
happy and smiling. Memorial Service will be conducted Monday, November 15 at 11:00 a.m.
