Peacefully at the Cornwall Community Hospital surrounded by family on Wednesday, July 8th, 2020. Anne Marie Vogel (Tancek) of Williamstown; age 82 years. Beloved wife of Alfred Vogel for 62 years. Loving mother of Tony (Cyndy) Vogel, Anne (Bob) Donkers, Paul (Linda) Vogel, Ursula (Dan) Flipsen, Angela (Doug) Fawcett.

Anne Marie will be remembered by her many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Anne Marie was born and raised on a small farm in Preston, Ontario. After marrying Alfred, they purchased their first farm in Paris, Ontario where they milked Brown Swiss Cows. In 1971 they moved their family and cows to Williamstown where their family grew along with their farm. Anne Marie loved all animals and welcomed many different kinds over the years. More than the four-legged kind, she loved children. If she wasn’t surrounded by her flowers, she was surrounded by children, her grandchildren, their friends and later, the great grandchildren. Anne Marie loved teaching them about animals. She spent many hours welcoming students to the farm and later volunteering her time in the classroom, always bringing a critter or two along with her.
In keeping with the physical distancing requirements, A Mass of Christian Burial with controlled attendance will be celebrated in St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church, Williamstown, on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Rite of Commital will follow in the Parish Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, we request a donation made to Williamstown Public school, where Anne Marie volunteered for many years.
