ANNA RAMSEY (published on April 27, 2009)

ANNA RAMSEY (nee WASCHENFELDER) March 9, 1920 - April 24, 2009 Peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on April 24, 2009 Anna passed away at Deer Lodge Centre at the age of 89. She was predeceased by her parents Ludwig and Margarete; siblings Jacob, Martha, Mary, and Millie; and loving aunts Sis and Aggie. Her memory will be cherished by her ten children Tom (Joyce), Pat (Jackie), Patricia (Jerome) Stetar, Katherine (Arnold) Furber, Lucille (Garry) Long, Gordon (Cheryl), Penny (Bob) Miller, Colleen (Rick) Poneira, Debra Holmes (Gord), and Harvey (Carolyn); siblings Pauline, Margaret, Sarah, Selma, and Dora. She will also be missed by her 32 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, step and foster grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Anna was born in Rhein, Saskatchewan and later moved to Stonewall, Manitoba, eventually settling in Winnipeg. She married Harold, they had ten children and later divorced. She worked hard all her life to raise her family, working in the home, as well as part time at Avon, CBC, and Sears. She loved crosswords, scrabble, cards, the outdoors, the lake, and visiting family. Anna will be remembered for her humility, devotion, and strength. Mom/Grandma was a great listener and confidant, she was a woman of few words, but what was spoken had meaning and depth. The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the many homecare workers, and the staff at the Deer Lodge Centre on 4E for the care and consideration shown to Mom. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday April 28, 2009 at 5:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave. with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers donations in Anna's name may be made to The Manitoba Lung Association, 629 McDermot, Winnipeg, MB, R3A 1P6. Chapel Lawn 885 - 9715
