One of our guild members, Anne Pennington, passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Feb 6th 2015. She was a young at heart 88 year old (89 on March 15th) who had many interests. She was particularly devoted to Bridge Playing and knitting and had been a member of A.T.B.K.G for many years.
On numerous occasions she brought spectacular hand knitted items to share for “Show and Tell” and was especially encouraging to new members and beginning knitters. She had many tips to share and she enjoyed the social aspect of the guild, acting as coffee hostess and publicity agent during the years we met at Marlatt’s.
Anne could always see the funny side of a situation and we shared many a joke during our drives together to the guild meetings. Her knitting expertise and welcoming personality will be truly missed.
