We remember Anet Henrikson, former VOW board member
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of a beloved former VOW board member, Anet Louise Henrikso on January 21, 2015 at the age of 70. Loving mother to Angelina and Julie and son-in-law Michael, and dear friend to Louise Lapointe. Wonderful grandmother to Olivia, Sienna, Charlotte, and Sofia.

Anet`s friends remember her as a warm, engaged, passionate human being. In the 1990s and early 2000s, she is remembered as a committed and outspoken feminist and social justice activist. On the list of issues to which she committed time and energy, we can include anti-war organizing, immigrant justice, anti-uranium mining, Indigenous sovereignty and much more. She actively participated in the No One Is Illegal March to Ottawa in 2005, and is remembered for her dancing at demos whenever there was a good enough sound system.
Anet’s friends wanted to convey just how much of warm-hearted and caring person that Anet was. Louise L speaks fondly of her “grand coeur”, and just how personally she took injustice against others.
Anet was born in London, England 70 years ago, of Norwegian origin, and came to Canada when she was 14 years old. She was a Montrealer. She was a mother and grandmother and leaves her two daughters as well as four granddaughters. She will be missed.
