Anne Antaya

1936 — January 1, 2014

Sister Anne Antaya of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada, London Neighbourhood, died suddenly on May 19, 2014 at University Hospital, London. Born in 1936, Sister was a member of the Congregation for 56 years. Lovingly remembered by her Sisters in community, her sister Eileen Duchene (Roger), Sr. Mary Teresa, O.S.U., nephews Gerry Duchene (Doreen), Rob Duchene (MaryAnn) and niece Paula Perrault (Bob), great nieces and nephews: Jocelyn, Charleene, Christine, Michael, and David, as well as many extended family members. We hold the shock of her passing in the deep hope of God's eternal embrace where she will be united once again with her mother Marie Murray and father William Charles. Trained as an elementary school teacher Sr. Anne served from 1955 -1982 in London, Sarnia, West Lorne, Seaforth, Zurich and Goderich. After retiring from teaching Sr. Anne continued ministry as a pastoral care volunteer. The witness of her parents embedded within Anne a strong desire to help her neighbours, so throughout her life, we, her religious community, have recognized her great capacity to visit and chat with the lonely and the ill. In 1998 Meadow Park Care Centre and Lodges honoured Sr. Anne for her "significant volunteer contributions" at an appreciation dinner and awards evening. Having volunteered at Meadow Park for twelve years, Sister also ministered at Country Terrace in Komoka and The Group Home in Mount Brydges. With tender hearts we thank God for Anne's faith and presence among us, a woman dedicated to prayer and service. All services will be held at the Sisters Residence, 485 Windermere Rd., London. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 21, from 3-5 p.m. and 7- 9 p.m. with the Vigil Service celebrated at 6:30 p.m. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, May 22 at 11:00 a.m., with Fr. Richard Charette officiating. Interment in St. Peter's Cemetery, London.
