Annie was a child of the prairies. As a teen, one of her duties was to listen to the daily farm broadcast and report wheat prices to her father. Annie married Jacob in Kronsgart, Man. Before they had their own 4 children, Annie and Jake nurtured special relationships with nieces and nephews. Guests were warmly welcomed to their home. In 1966, the family moved to Abbotsford, where Jake served as Bakerview’s first pastor for 9 years. Jake’s death led to a lonely life for Annie, but she maintained her daily walks. Annie’s 100th birthday was memorable: family and friends came from afar to see her.
