Peacefully at home on Saturday 2nd May, 2020 after a short battle with cancer, Ann, loving wife of the late Peter, and a much loved mum, nana, and great-nana to the family. Due to Government restrictions a private cremation will take place, with a memorial service at a later date. The family will also be setting up a "Just Giving" page in memory of Ann, and details of this page will follow in due course. The family also want to confirm that due to the current restrictions regarding funerals, they wish Ann to be driven on a route around Hawick before heading towards the Borders Crematorium, which will allow folk to pay their respects from their own front door. This route will be starting at 9am on Monday 11th May from McLagan Drive, up Charles Street, right into Hillend Drive, then down Fraser Avenue, along Kenilworth Avenue past the School, right onto Eildon Road, Burnhead Road, Burnfoot Road, past the Burnfoot Community Hub, heading down into town along the High Street, past the Town Hall to the Sandbed, along Commercial Road, then taking the A7 to Melrose. Messages of condolence may be left for the family using the link noted below, and you can also login to a live webcast of the service for Ann at the Borders Crematorium, and either contact Ann's family or John Beattie & Sons on 01450 377284 for the necessary login details.

I am so sorry to hear of Ann’s death. I worked for Burnfoot Community Futures when my last name was Paterson. I spent many hours in Ann’s home bringing Committee paperwork and chatting about Burnfoot, life and everything. She was a lovely person and I am proud to have known her. Please accept my condolences xxx
