Each day is born with a sunrise and ends with a sunset. The sunset of life for Ann Shirley Chatterton came on January 29, 2024 when she passed away peacefully surrounded by love and now present with her Lord. Born in Briggs Corner to Russell and Mabel (Shirley) Briggs, growing up in Chipman, NB, she continued at Teachers College in Fredericton graduating in 1951. She began teaching in Chipman, then on to and Plaster-rock. She met Ernie during those college years and married on July 18, 1953, moving to Montreal shortly thereafter where they started their family.

As a woman of faith, Ann has been recognized by the Canadian Bible Society, New Brunswick Right for Life and The Community of Concern within the United Church of Canada for her many years of faithful service to their organizations.

As Ann’s children, Judy (Fraser) Ingraham, Jim (Cathy) Chatterton, Bill (Arnesta) Chatterton and chosen daughter Charlene Chatterton, we have truly been blessed as God gave us only the best.

Ann was a loving active “Nana” to her nine grandchildren: Tanya (Bliss) Hayward, Trevor (Emily) Ingraham; Andrew (Angie), Jason, Adam (Sarah) Chatterton, Nathan Bennett; Alex, Kristen (Dwayne) and Thomas (Clara) Chatterton.

Of late, her joy multiplied with the arrival of her little great-grandchildren: Wyatt, Sydney and Samuel Hayward; Adalyn and Quinn Ingraham; Carson, Dawson; Kalina and Kai; Viktor and Lillith Chatterton.

Mum leaves behind her older sister Myra Dykeman, brothers-in-law Chester McMackin & Beverly Kaine, sister-in-law Florence Way, several nieces and nephews. Each of us has been so blessed to have had such a wonderful Mum, Nana, Great-Nana, Sister, Sister-in-law, Aunt or friend.

She was predeceased by her parents Russel and Mabel (Shirley) Briggs, her beloved husband Ernest (Ernie), her twin sister Esther McMackin, sister-in-law Kay Kaine, brother-in-law Doug Dykeman, two nieces and one nephew.

We wish to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to the Riverside Court Staff for all the love and care Mum has received since moving her new home in March 2016. As her health declined, you made sure she was comfortable, well cared for and more importantly well loved. Your hugs and kisses have been immeasurable appreciated!!

In celebration of Ann’s lifetime, a visitation will be held at Flewelling Funeral Home, 585 Otis Drive, Nackawic, NB on Saturday, February 3, 2024 from 12 noon until 2:30 p.m., followed by the funeral service with Rev. Dr. Brad Little officiating. Interment will be at a later date at Barony Cemetery.

For those who wish to make a donation in memory of Ann, the family has suggested River Valley Christian Academy or the Barony Cemetery.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be;
so He put his arms around you, and whispered “Come to Me.”
