Annie’s childhood home was filled with love, faith, laughter and music. When war broke out, the men of her family were taken, but Annie, her mother, and sister escaped to Germany and reunited with her grandparents in Canada. Annie and Daniel, a widower with 8 children, had 2 more children. Annie’s one constant was her faith in Jesus, demonstrated through service, prayer and selfless love for her community, church and family. Annie worked hard to become an X-ray and laboratory technician, then a medical clinic manager. She prayed daily for every family member. She was always ready to listen and ever present at significant events. Annie and Daniel opened their home to thousands. Together, they met challenges and joys with prayer, laughter and affection, continuing to flirt with each other into their advancing years. When Annie became ill, Daniel was a constant support.
