Anna Ruth (Jeschke) Schroeder


Deaths-AnnAnna loved music. She met Jacob when he was her choir director at Bethany Bible Institute, Hepburn, Sask. Most of her life was spent in Hepburn, but for a time, she and Jacob opened a health food store, another passion of hers, in Winkler, Man. Jacob died soon after their return to Waldheim. When Anna was no longer able to care for herself, she moved to Caleb Manor, and finally into the Rosthern Mennonite Nursing Home in 2006.
