Annie Patricia Fortune


Annie Patricia (Hurley) Fortune went on to glory surrounded by her loving family on September 21 in the Harbourstone care facility, where she resided for the past 2 years. She was the daughter of the late Thomas and Angelina (Ranson) Hurley.

Annie was an avid volunteer for many years at the Army & Navy Ladies Auxiliary Unit 217, New Waterford, where she was a member for over 50 years. She was also a member of the Lions Club where she served at weddings and funerals for many people in the community. Chances are if you attended a wedding or luncheon, she served you. Mom loved a good game of cards and enjoyed going to play bingo.

She was affectionately known in Harbourstone as ‘Nanny’ and you could find her dancing and singing along to whoever was playing music. Family was her true pride and joy, and she loved her girls with all her heart, and we sure knew it. The warmth of her love and big smile will be missed beyond measure.

Annie leaves a legacy of love to mourn her passing with her daughters and grandchildren: Angie (Winston) Burke, Daniel Fortune, Terrylynn Fortune, Christopher Fraser, Kyle Burke, Cory Burke, Samantha Burke. Simone (Brian) Mutch, Donald Campbell Jr., Daniel DJ Campbell Margaret (Joseph) Lynk, Thomas Lynk, Carlotta Lynk, Doreen Harte Frances (Donald deceased) Hibbert, Pamela Fortune, Joseph Fortune. Florence (Butch) Angione, Anna Angione, Patricia Angione, Gervais Angione. Paula Fortune (Frank), Ashley Wasmund, Timothy Wasmund(deceased), Carmel (deceased) Charles Parsons, Margaret Ann Julian, Charles David Parsons, Elizabeth (Leo Popwell) Morrison, Andrew Morrison, Jillian Morrison. As well as 34 Great Grand Children, many nieces and nephew’s special niece Elaine Parsons, her go to anywhere angel.

She is also survived by her brothers Wilfred "Duck" Hurley (Carmel Hulme) and her sister-in-law Norma Hurley.

Besides her parents, Annie was predeceased by her husband Gervase Fortune as well as sisters; Margaret (Thomas)MacNeil, Mary (Frank) Rice, Florence (Joseph)Campbell, Bridget (William) Lozinski, Theresa (George) Gouthro, brothers; Joseph (Florence) Hurley, Thomas (Mary) Hurley, Michael (Madge) Hurley, William (Mary) Hurley, Douglas Hurley.

We would like to thank the workers at Harbourstone for taking such good care of mom, your care and compassion made the hard transition into her ‘home away from home’, which for the most part she was content, but a part of her always longed to return home, she is home now, in the arms of Jesus.
