Ann Louise Isobel Blake (nee. Sheppard)
April 1, 1943 - April 4, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of the late Ann Louise Isobel Blake (nee. Sheppard), announces her sudden passing at her home in Victoria Cove, NL, on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021, at the age of 78, with her devoted husband by her side.

Predeceased by her parents, Stewart and Joyce Sheppard; brother Richard; sisters Florence, Enid, and Ruth, parents in law Cecil and Eva Blake; brother in law Alvin; sister in law May; special friend Jacqui.

Left to mourn with loving memories are her husband of 44 years, Frank; her 4 dearly loved children - Rodney (Stephanie) Blake of Torbay, NL; Randy Blake of Portugal Cove - St.Philips, NL; Rhonda (Curtis) Quinn of Port Coquitlam, BC; and Leslie-Ann (Terry) Fancey of Gander, NL; her five precious grandchildren - Megan, Stacey, Kaitlyn, Rhianna and Blake. Also leaving to mourn are her sisters in law Ruby (Evan), Marjorie (Bill), Isabel, Nellie (Sean), and Daphne, brother in law Harold; and a very large circle of other family and friends who will miss her dearly.

Ann and Frank met each other in Clarke’s Head in 1973, where they were both teaching. They were married on May 20, 1976 and settled in Victoria Cove to raise their family. Ann was a strong, caring and compassionate woman who touched many lives during her teaching career and beyond. She cherished visits and phone calls from her children, she adored her grandchildren and never missed acknowledging a holiday or special occasion. She has many close friends who will miss her presence in their lives.

Ann was a woman of great faith, and it is in this faith that she found comfort in her most difficult days. Ann overcame 2 separate battles with breast cancer, and suffered recently with other illnesses. She always maintained strength and courage in whatever challenge she faced. Our lives will never be the same without her, but we will take comfort in our memories, and that she passed at home with her husband by her side.

In lieu of flowers, donations made be made in Ann’s memory to the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Gander Bay, or to the Gander Bay Volunteer Fire Department.

In keeping with Ann’s wishes, cremation will take place. A celebration of her life will take place at a later time when our family can all be together.

Arrangements entrusted to Stacey’s Funeral Home, Gander.

“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unheard, but always near....still loved, still missed and very dear."

We are so sorry to hear of Ann’s passing. We have wonderful memories of Ann and Frank from our years of teaching with them in Gander Bay. One in particular, during a teachers’ event dance, it was announced the band would do “ Walk Through This World With Me “ for Ann and Frank on their Anniversary . A beautiful choice and Ann certainly did that . Our sincere condolences to Frank and Family at this sad time . Cherish your memories . Sincerely , Fraser and Yvonne Lush

I called her Miss Sheppard and later Mrs. Blake. She was one of my most loved teachers when I was in elementary school. I remember her reading about the man who was very absent-minded and laughing with the class. I am so sad to hear of her passing. My condolences go out to Mr. Blake and the rest of the families. May God bless and comfort you!
