Anne Philippa Rose (Watson) Bosetti

January 12, 1933 ~ December 21, 2019 (age 86)


   Anne Philippa Rose Bosetti passed away peacefully in the loving presence of her family on December 21, 2019 at the age of 86 years.  A confidant, friend, mother and grandmother, she provided unconditional love and support to her family.  Her greatest pride was in their accomplishments.

   Anne was born January 12, 1933 in Wetaskiwin, AB to George and Violet Vincent Watson, immigrants from the Isle of Wight, and sister to Thomas Watson and Bunty Tiley.  As a young nurse in the Crowsnest Pass, AB she married the love of her life, Rino Bosetti.  She was a devoted mother to Dr. Shelley Bosetti-Piché and Dr. Lynn Bosetti, and grandmother to Harrison Nesbitt of New York, Philippa Nesbitt of Paris, Dr. Matthew Piché of Australia and Gillian Piché of Vancouver.

   Anne will be remembered for her radiant energy, elegant style and love of dogs.  While a city girl at heart, she retired with Rino to the family ranch, which she continued to manage to her final days.  She has been a role model and source of inspiration to many and will be dearly missed.

  Anne’s family extends their gratitude for the care and kindness provided by Debbie Fantin and home care.

   With respect for Anne’s wishes, a private family service will be held with Rev. Nicky Keyworth officiating.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass SPCA (PO Box 725, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0), or the charity of your choice.  Condolences may be registered at

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel entrusted with the arrangements.  (403) 562-8555
