It is with great sadness that we announce that Anne, known by her friends as Annabel, passed away at Royal Columbian Hospital from a massive stroke on February 21, 2018, at age 51. She was the much loved daughter of Sylvia and the late Dr. Michael Crooks. Born in Vancouver, Anne attended Kerrisdale schools and was a graduate of Simon Fraser University. She was a highly intelligent, caring and generous person with great artistic talent. She will be greatly missed by her mother Sylvia, brothers Geoff and Brian, son Clayton VanVolkenburg, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends, especially Brad Cooper.  A private gathering of family and friends in Anne’s memory will be held at her family home on March 17.
