MUSICK, Anne Christena Alexandria (Murchison) — 75, Murray Road, passed away February 5, 2017 in hospital in Halifax. Born in Point Prim, Prince Edward Island on Aug. 14, 1941, Anne was the daughter of the late Hector and Phemie (Panton) Murchison of Point Prim, PEI. Anne and her husband Edwin raised their three boys, Paul, Jamie and Alan on the Murray Road, Pictou County where the door to their home was always open to friends and family. She was a registered licenced practical nurse who loved her work at the Children’s Home in Pictou. After its closure she was employed with the Victorian Order of Nurses in the Tatamagouche area until her retirement in 1997. Anne’s pride and joy was her family. She loved her grandchildren with all of her heart. Their visits would involve conversations at the kitchen table, tea parties and baking cookies. Every visit started with a smile and ended with a big hug from Nanny. She will always be remembered as an independent, strong woman who put family first above everything else. Her ties to Prince Edward Island remained strong throughout the years with many summers spent at her family home in Point Prim visiting with cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. Anne was an only child but was blessed to have Edwin’s family become her own. She will always be considered a sister to Rollie, Lila, Evelyn, Linda, Brenda and Marlene. She was also blessed to have close friends visit regularly for their Wednesday night coffee chats and neighbors who became part of their extended family. Anne is survived by her husband, Edwin as well as her three sons, Paul (Sueann), Jamie (Dawn) and Alan (Gina). She had six grandchildren, Haley, John, Charlotte, Kaylen, Taryn and Hannah. Family service was held at McLaren Funeral Home in Pictou on February 9. Donations may be made in Anne’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
