ANITA ROSEMARIE (LEHMANN) OZOG (published on January 30, 2010)



ANITA ROSEMARIE (LEHMANN) OZOG August 16, 1964 - January 28, 2010 Anita Ozog, aged 45, left us while at home with her family, as she wished. While her passing was peaceful, she left us far too early. She will be dearly missed by her husband Greg and her children, Stefan and Sabina, whom she truly cherished. Anita also leaves behind her mother Else; father Harry; siblings, Monika, Dorothy (Richard), Rita (Sally), Kurt (Mel) and many, many dear friends. Anita always had a clear personal sense of life balance (family, health, work, spirit). A study of extremes, she strived to explore both her inner and outer worlds: from voracious multi-tasker to mindful yoga practitioner to silent, still reader. Ever the optimistic adventurer, Anita loved to explore new opportunities or challenges, always with the expectation of a positive outcome. Anita was most in her element when she was out in nature whether walking in Assiniboine Forest, camping with us or on her own with a tent, one-burner stove and a water bottle somewhere in the Canadian Shield. If she ever found herself anywhere near downtown, you can be sure that she would pay a visit to Mountain Equipment Coop to check out the latest camping gear. Anita possessed an innate enthusiasm and kindness for many things, but mostly for her husband, whom she considered her best friend and team-mate, and her children. She lived her role as parent to the fullest, always trying to better understand how to build the best experiences and learning opportunities for Stefan and Sabina. She ingrained a sense of fun and wonder in her children, showing them how to learn and enjoy life through experience. Never bored with life, Anita loved so many things: camping, anything to do with water, reading, yoga, dancing, gardening, travelling, learning, health, food, environmental issues, her neighbourhood and her Vita-Mix. A life-long fitness enthusiast, she took up the challenge of triathlon at age 43, despite hating running. She later drew on the strong will and determination she exhibited in her triathlon experience to face, with renewed vigour, every setback in her disease. Anita treasured the many dear friends in her life who she drew strength from in different ways and who she supported in their times of need. Anita was an exceptional woman, mother, spouse and friend who will forever be missed. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the team at CancerCare Manitoba (St. Boniface) who treated Anita with the utmost care and compassion. Special thanks to Anita's support triangle of Dr. Wong and Kathy, Dr. Daeninck and Tracy and Bunty. You allowed Anita to get the most out of her life, while living with cancer. Finally, thank you to all who attended to Anita's needs at Riverview and the Home Care team who allowed us to fulfill her final wish. A celebration of Anita's life will take place at Thomson In the Park Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard, Monday, February 1 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
