In Loving Memory of Annie Jane Small (nee Acheson)

With loving family by her side at her Petrolia home, Annie Jane Small peacefully passed away at the age of 86. She is reunited with her beloved husband, Glenn (1996), whom she cherished dearly throughout their life together.

Annie was a loving mother to Bryan and Elly Small, Brenda and John Smith, and Allan and Kathy Small. Her family was her greatest joy, and she was a proud grandma to Benjamin Small and his children Xavier, Korra, and Maverick; Bradley Small; Regan and Angela Smith and their boys, Mason and Parker; Jordan and his partner Karla and their children Jax, Koller, Avery, and Sterling; Joel Smith and his partner Morgan; Amanda Small and her husband Darren Goble and their children Aidan and Rowan. She was also a special grandma to Daniel Armstrong, Aaron and Emma Armstrong and their son Lewis, and Kaitlyn and Derrick Warren and their daughter Elliana. She will be dearly missed by many friends and neighbours.

Annie lived life as a strong, independent woman and wife, who instilled traditional values in her family and all who knew her. Her devotion to her grandchildren was unparalleled, and she leaves behind cherished memories that will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

A memorial service will be held at the Wyoming Chapel of Needham-Jay Funeral Home on Thursday, July 11, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. Interment in Hillsdale Cemetery.

The family would like to thank Jocelyn from Bayshore for her loving care of mom and Willi Kirenko for her knowledge and kindness.
