Anne Elizabeth Canning

July 2nd, 1927 - June 22nd, 2024

It is with a deep sense of loss that we announce the passing of Anne Elizabeth Canning, who left this world peacefully on June 22, 2024, in her hometown of St. Petersburg, FL. Born on July 2, 1927, in St. Petersburg, Anne lived a long and fulfilling life, embodying grace, dedication, and a profound commitment to her family and community. 

 

Anne's educational journey began at St. Petersburg High School, but she found her true calling at Aiken Open Air School. There, she distinguished herself not only academically but also as a community leader, serving as Secretary of her Senior Class and participating actively in the Literary and Sports Clubs. 

 

A dedicated community servant, Anne was a lifetime member of the Ronald McDonald House, where she volunteered tirelessly for over 22 years. Her contributions extended to the Junior League, Suncoasters, and the Museum of Fine Arts, reflecting her deep commitment to the well-being and cultural enrichment of her community. Moreover, Anne's leadership shone brightly during her tenure as President of the North Shore Elementary School PTA. 

 

Anne's life was marked by her unwavering dedication to her family. She was a devoted wife to her late husband, Wilbert Ross Canning, and a loving mother to her five children: Stephen R. Canning, Thomas D. Canning, Joan C. Gould, Philip R. Canning, and Betsy A. Canning. Her legacy continues through her cherished eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, whom she loved dearly.

 

Anne's passions extended beyond her community and family to the simple joys of life. She found solace in gardening, admired the beauty of flowers, sunsets, and full moons, and expressed her creativity through needlepoint. The beach was her sanctuary, where she often found peace and inspiration.

 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Anne’s honor to the Ronald McDonald House of St. Petersburg.

Anne was my next door neighbor for the year I resided in Bldg. 3. On occasion we would enjoy tea and chat. She was a gracious and elegant lady who always greeted me with a smile. Just a pleasure to be with.

Ann was a neighbor for years when my mother owned the condo down the hall. She was always sweet and kind when I visited my mom and when I took the condo over. We became friends. I always looked forward when we could go down and see her again. I would send pictures of flowers, fall leaves and kept in touch. She was such a lovely, charming and special lady.
