Anne-Marie Ballin

Obituary of Anne-Marie Ballin


Anne-Marie passed away peacefully at Welland Hospital with her family by her side on July 24, 2019 after a brief and sudden illness in her 50th year. Born in Port Colborne, ON on January 28, 1970. She is survived by parents John and Patricia (Bailey), brother Jeffrey (Anne Marie) and nephew Maxwell, Uncle David Bailey (Mary Anne), Aunts Francis Lemelin, Barbara and Pam Ballin and many cousins.

She brought great joy to all she came in contact with. Her determination and drive helped her conquer many hurdles. She traveled on cruises, swam with the dolphins and caught the sun in beach resorts in the Caribbean. She rode in helicopters and cheered at many hockey and baseball games. Although she couldn't talk, she could definitely communicate and touched so many with her wonderful laughter. 

Special thanks to all the caregivers, many who became like family, staff of Community Living and the doctors and nurses through her journey.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the Armstrong Funeral Home & Chapel, 179 Clarence Street, Port Colborne.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, July 29, 11-4 at Community Living Port Colborne, 100 McRae Ave. In lieu of flowers, donations to Community Living Port Colborne-Wainfleet and Special Olympics Port Colborne.
