ROLLINS, Annie May (nee Lewis) ---– Feb.11, 1907 - Oct. 24, 2004 ---– Annie May Thais Lewis Rollins (known simply as 'grandma' to most people) passed away peacefully on October 24, 2004 at the age of 97. She was born in Cardigan, Prince Edward Island on February 11, 1907 to William and Melvina Lewis. She spent her childhood in Prince Edward Island before living briefly in Boston and New York City. In 1928 she married Clifton Allan Rollins. Through their forty- seven years of marriage they lived in many small communities throughout Ontario. Cliff and Anna moved to Garson, ON in 1941, where they lived until their deaths. She was predeceased by her husband Cliff (1975); sons Harold (1946) and Herbert (1999); grandchildren Mary Ann and Christopher; and brothers and sisters Ronald, Bernadette, Hazel, Alec, Genoa, Agnes and Joey. She leaves behind a large, loving family whom she adored. Including her seven surviving children, Thomas (wife Genevieve) of Garson, ON; William (wife Marilyn) of Spuzum, B.C.; Charles (wife Lorance) of Garson, ON; Laura Gustin (husband Delmar) of Mackenzie, B.C.; Ruby Butler (husband Dennis) of Sudbury, ON: Shirley Cull (husband Gordon) of Garson, ON; and Arnold (wife Beverley) of Dryden, ON. Her daughter-in-law Margaret (wife of Herbert) of Garson, ON. Her sister Grace of Saskatoon, SK. Her 28 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great-grandchildren. There was nothing more important to her than her family. She spent as much time with family as she could, and frequently travelled 'out west' to visit. She took great pleasure from family dinners; and going 'out to lunch' or 'to town' with family members. She was always there for her family; through the years she took care of many of her grandchildren while their parents worked. Her other loves were hockey and bowling. She was a devoted fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and became known as a 'hockey grandma' because she was a regular at her grandchildren's and later great-grandchildren's hockey games. She continued to bowl in the Golden Age League until she was 88 years old and even afterwards loved to watch her grandchildren bowl. She had strong political views and loved to watch question period on television. She also had very strong religious convictions and was a devout Catholic; she was a member of St. John's parish and Catholic Women's League. She belonged to the Skead Road Women's Institute and Skead Road Community Club. She passed along her faith, her values, and her strong work ethic to her family; and will be sadly missed, but will be forever in our hearts and minds.
