Annie was born on July 3, 1930 in her beloved Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Annie left her homeland as a 26 year old and moved to America, which was a dream of hers from the time she was 17.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Andrew and Annie Niven; and her beloved husband of 30 years, Ralph Bickford.
Annie enjoyed a career of 30 years as a loan officer and teller at the downtown branch of Spokane and Eastern Bank.
She had been an active member of Fourth Memorial Church for nearly 40 years.
She was known by all for her great ability as a cook, and for her endless generosity in constantly providing meals for her many friends.
Annie’s immense love for her Lord and for the Word of God inspired her to adopt a lifelong ministry as a relentless “prayer warrior”.
She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Alice and George Treanor, her niece Lynn Treanor; all of Northern Ireland, United Kingdom; and locally, by her cousins Ann Louise Becker and her husband Louie Becker, and Donald Materne.
Her memorial service will be held at Fourth Memorial Church at 2000 N. Standard, Spokane, WA, on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 2:00pm.
