Obituary for Anne Gallant (Metrow)

GALLANT; Anne Louise (née Metrow)

Passed away peacefully at Hospice Peterborough on Saturday, December 30, 2023 at the age of 62. Anne will be forever loved and missed by her husband of 39 years, Gord Gallant and their children, Alec Graham (Sasha) and Ethan Gallant (Emily). Beloved daughter of Marney (née Wilson) and the late Stephen Metrow of Apsley. Dear sister of Jim Metrow (Melanie) of Cavan, and Katherine (Ralf Borowski) of Gibsons, British Columbia.

Anne was a dedicated public servant through her working career at the District Health Council, and at the Peterborough Public Health before her illness occurred, concentrating on youth and activity. Her fierce creative spirit found avenues in watercolour painting, quilting, hand spinning, knitting, and weaving. Anne will be remembered by her extended family and friends.

A memorial service will commence at 3:30 PM in the Chapel, followed by a reception in the Legacy Room. For those unable to attend, the service will be livestreamed.
