We, the family, regret to announce the passing of Anne Lucille Popwell in the early morning hours of Saturday, May 8, 2021 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

We’ve been thinking about you guys since we first heard Ann was sick. It was a real shock to hear she died this past Saturday and just want you to know how sorry we are. Ann was so special…her sense of humour, her love of life no matter what it threw at her and her unwavering courage and devotion to her family were a testament to the great person she was. We all feel so lucky to have known her as our fist cousin. Lots of love to you all, Terri & Graham, Liesje & Curdis & Mary & Randy.
