Annie’s family immigrated to Canada in 1925, settling in Hochfeld, Man. Annie taught by permit in northern Manitoba. At a Thanksgiving service, she accepted Jesus as Saviour. John 3:16 was special to her. Difficult times caused the family to relocate to Yarrow, B.C., in 1944, where they picked raspberries and hops to supplement their income. Following senior matriculation in Chilliwack, B.C., Annie worked at the Yarrow co-op and a Vancouver office. She returned to Yarrow to assist her sister with the berry farm and help care for her parents. In Yarrow, she served the Sunday school, church library, and MCC store. In 1998, Annie and her sisters moved to Abbotsford, where she enjoyed new and old friends. Annie loved her nieces and nephews, prayed for them regularly, and always remembered their birthdays. Annie was predeceased by 8 siblings – 4 in infancy.
