It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Anne on March 7, 2019 at the Menno Home in Abbotsford. Anne will be greatly missed by her partner of 35 years, Bill Conn; sisters, Marsha (Hugh), Karin (Brian); brothers, Ralph, Carl (Debbie), Jim, Danny, Carmen, Desmond; her nieces and nephews, Tiffany, Cristy, Ashley, Stacey, Ryan; Bill’s nieces and nephews, Lisa, Stacey, Rob, Shelly, and Karen.

Anne was predeceased by her parents, George and Katharina Geddert; Bill’s parents, Sam and Eileen; and Linda, Judy, and Ben.

Anne was born in Hachborn, Germany and immigrated to Canada in 1954 with her parents and sister, Marsha. Anne worked as a caregiver at Simpson Rest Home for 33 years and thoroughly enjoyed working with seniors. She was a great animal lover and would go out of her way to save an animal.

We would like to thank all the staff at Menno Home for their care and compassion.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA. No service by request.

Memories of Anne. Our favourite ones are camping in Manning Park, Birch Bay and at Cultus lake, with Brian and I. They always bring a smile to our faces and a laugh or two as well. From burying our wine so the Rangers didn’t find it, to climbing TeaPot Hill. There really were 500 stairs!
Buying your nieces Ashley and Stacey their first hamsters and telling them that they liked socks to cosy in. It was a frantic search till Brian finally found Stacey’s, in, of course, her sock drawer!
To our last visit, Marsha and I holding your hands going through the old photos and taking a trip down memory lane.
Rest In Peace, you will be missed
Love your sisters Karin and Marsha
