Ann passed away peacefully, at the age of 78, with her family by her side, November 20, 2018. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Robert, her daughter Karen (Richard Van Camp), daughter-in-law Kim Phan (sister Lien Phan), sisters-in-law Jean Milton and Bonnie Pyper, as well as many nieces and nephews. Most importantly, she leaves behind the lights of her life, her four grandchildren, Thea Boyd, Wesley and Colton Van Camp and Maёlle Boyd.
Sadly, Ann was predeceased by her first husband, Constable Elwood Joseph Keck, her brother Jack Milton and her two sons, Andrew Joseph Boyd and Robert Bruce Boyd.
Ann was born, raised and spent most of her years in Kamloops and the Shuswap. “The Boyd’s Nest” was her family’s earthly paradise at Little Shuswap Lake. She and Bob were fortunate enough to escape winter for over a decade in Sun City, Arizona. Their move to Penticton over the past five years brought Ann much joy, as she truly loved it here.
A Celebration of Life will take place Saturday, December 1, 2018 at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre, 273 Power Street. Special thanks to the ICU nurses, doctors Broder and Schneider and the staff of PRH. Memorial tributes would be welcome to the Penticton Regional Hospital Foundation.
