obit-anne-friesenAnne was proud of her beekeeper father and liked working with him on the farm. She enjoyed a year of practise teaching Grades 1–9 in a one-room school before accepting a job with Newton Enterprises. Anne’s faith was a vital part of her life. She met Fred at the MB church in Newton, where she attended her whole life. Anne and Fred raised their family on the Friesen family homestead near Elie, Man. They moved to a farm near Oakville, Man., in 1967. Anne loved being a grandma and great-grandma. She drove school bus in the Elie and Oakville districts for many years. She enjoyed gardening, canning, baking, sewing and reading. She taught sewing at Oakville Community 4H Club. Anne found joy in Friendship Bible Coffees and the church ladies group. She taught Sunday school and prayed for the children and youth. After Fred’s death, Anne missed him greatly and her desire to join him in Jesus’ presence grew. Anne will be remembered for her care and constant prayers for her family, church and friends.
