Whitney Pier

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.
Born on November 25, 1941 in Glace Bay, Anne was the daughter of the late Ronald Anthony and Mary Margaret (MacGregor) MacDonald.

Anne is survived by her loving daughter, Lynn; son, Paul; brothers, Paul (Beth) and Fraser; sister, Mary Lynn; niece, Jodi; brother-in-law, Joe Joe; partner, Bobby Gaynair; grandchildren, Junior, Gary, David, Michael and Alesha; great-grandchildren, Jahmai, Mia, Taysia, Shylah, Shaniah, Journee, Taysia and Olivia; as well as her nephews, extended family and friends in the Pier and Glace Bay.

Anne lived life “Full Force” and jumped headfirst into every situation. She loved music, dancing and laughter and was a “Social Butterfly” at all her events. Anne was the centre of attention and she loved every minute of it. To all those around her, you meant the world to her. Thanks to cousin, Russell and his wife Sherry for their continued support to Anne in her time of need.

To quote Anne “Never remember me with tears, always with laughter.” We will try Anne! Love you forever.

There will be no visitation or service for the late Anne Popwell. Interment will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Big Pond at a later date.

Donations in memory of Anne may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
