It is with great sadness that the family and friends of Ann Nachai announce her passing on October 26, 2020. Ann enjoyed a life full of accomplishments. Her career began in advertising with The Edmonton Journal, where she remained for fifteen years. Being a restless soul, Ann switched careers and took on the challenge of designing the program for and running a small-business training centre, The Training Network. During her twenty-five years in this endeavour, she helped many people reach their business goals. Through these successes, Ann proved she accomplished that which she set out to do.
Upon retirement, Ann switched her energy to providing care to her three beloved brothers (Peter, Tony, and Nick Nachai) until each of their passing. She showed them kindess and compassion during their illnesses.
Ann made the decision to never marry or have children, as she said there were too many other things she wanted to do. The thing for which she had the most passion was world travel. She travelled to six of the seven continents and, if given more time in her life, intended to make it seven. Ann took every opportunity she could to visit a new country, taste the food, and soak up the culture. These travels have provided her much continued pleasure as she was able to relive the many memories made while in contemplation in her last year of life.
Ann had great friends, whom she shared many laughs, tears, good food and wine with. The “book club” ladies and her other friends were a great support and helped to make her last days more enjoyable with their visits and phone calls.
Ann would like to offer thank-yous to her caregivers in her final days, as well as a special thanks to Georgina Lawrence and Dwayne Donald, who provided exemplary care in her time of need.
She had a good life.
As per Ann’s request, there shall be no service.
