Annie Adelia (Collier) Broadbridge
Annie Broadbridge, resident of McFarland Nursing Home, Picton,
died November 28th, 2015
after several years of living with advanced Alzheimers.
Annie was born January 11th, 1923 in Sudbury, ON,
the fifth child of Joseph William Collier and Clara Frances Terry.
The family moved back to Prince Edward County when she was still an infant
and she has lived in the county for all her life.
All of her married life was lived in Wellington (mainly on Maple Street).
Annie married Sidney Broadbridge (brother-in-law of her sister) on November 9th, 1945 in
Anglican Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Picton. They did not have children.
Both worked in general labour throughout the county and especially in the canning factories
in the Wellington and Cressy areas. Annie was proud that she was one of the fastest tomato packers on the line.
She was also noted for her sense of fun and love of practical jokes.
Annie and Sid were longtime members of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Wellington,
where there is a memorial window for Sid near their habitual pew. Besides church activities,
Annie enjoyed handcrafts such as knitting, quilting and cross-stitch on canvas or plastic web,
jigsaw puzzles (she would hide a piece so that she would have the last one to finish it off) and playing cards.
Annie was predeceased by her parents, husband, brother James Collier, and
sisters Evelyn (Leroy) Bauerlein, Ethel (Charles) Broadbridge and Beatrice (Frank) Greeley.
She is survived by her brother Travice (Maisie) Collier, Thunder Bay, ON.
Annie is remembered fondly by many nieces and nephews.
