In Loving Memory of Ann B. Draper (nee Grant), 81 years. Peacefully, Monday, November 9th, 2020 at Health Sciences North with loving family at her side.

Beloved wife of Peter Draper. Loving mother of Kathie Draper, Laurie Verreault (Bryan), Tracey Nguyen (Le), Jodie Villeneuve (Patrick), Daniel Draper (Lorrie), James Draper (Brenda), and Brent Draper. Cherished grandmother of Ryan (Kristen), Cory, Kristina (Andrew), Jason (Chris), Jeffery, Mariah (Darren), Sara, Jessica (Eric), Michael (Jessica), Tri (Nguyen), Trung, Jenn (Myles), Kurtis (Melissa), Krista (Cody), Hannah, Chase, Veronica, Mallorie, and great grandchildren Giselle, Sophia, Jack, Eleanor, Asher, Emmit, Noah, Carter, Cameron, Remy, Ophelia, Zed, Nova, Astral, Tatyanna, Sophie, and Emelie. Loving daughter of Peter and Loretta (nee Sylvestre) Grant both predeceased. Dear sister of Gail Tammi (predeceased), Angus Grant (predeceased)(Madeleine), Daniel Grant (predeceased) and David Grant (predeceased). Sadly missed by nieces and nephews.

Ann lived in Azilda from the age of 13 years and was in the first class to graduate from Chelmsford High School (1956), and a graduate from the 3-year program at St. Elizabeth School of Nursing (1959). For 53 plus years, she was a member of the C.W.L. and the Legion Branch 553, Chelmsford. She was very proud of the 50-plus years that she was a member of Girl Guides, serving as Brown Owl for the Brownie unit and over 20 years as Sparkle for the Spark unit until she was forced to give it up quite suddenly when she became very ill. She took that setback very hard. For a few years when her children were young, she fostered sick babies; the doctor wanted these babies to live in an active household so they could be better evaluated. She worked very closely with the Vietnamese refugee family that was sponsored by the church and who are still close friends. In 1984, she received the Community Service Medal for her volunteer work. Ann loved to sew, knit, crochet, cook, read, do the Star puzzles, arts and crafts, and going to the movies and other events with the grandchildren.

Thoughts and prayers for all the Draper family. I have fond memories babysitting at the Draper home so Ann and Peter could go bowling many many years ago

Sending love from Lynne, the kids and I to Uncle Pete and the entire Draper family.

Although not blood-related, our family only ever referred to the kind people next door as "Uncle" Pete and "Auntie" Ann. Auntie Ann will always be remembered as a kind soul. As a boy, whenever my brother and I and would pass the football in the Drapers' yard, like clockwork Auntie Ann would eventually appear in the window and chat with us to see how we were doing. Whether it be stopping by at their house to show her our newborn baby, a pair of knitted mittens with a $5 bill stuffed inside for each of our kids at Christmas, or inviting my daughter to come over countless times over the years to "have tea" with the their dog Dawson, Auntie Ann had her special way of making our family feel welcomed and valued. The Drapers have been the one constant neighbor to our family for nearly half of a century; the neighborhood will not be the same without her.

Deepest Sympathies ,

Barry and Lynne Ornella and family
