Annie was born on May 2, 1920 to Meije & Antje Lanting in Oosthem, Friesland, The Netherlands and went home to be with the Lord on June 7, 2018. At the age of three she and her parents and two brothers left Friesland to make a new home in America because the future there didn't look promising for a young family. They arrived at Ellis Island and then departed by train across the U.S. and came to Clearwater-Hynes (Paramount) to start a small dairy of 30 cows. Sister Aggie was born here. The family were charter members of a new Reformed church which formed as more immigrants arrived (Emmanuel Reformed). Later they moved the dairy to Artesia and were charter members of Artesia Reformed Church. Annie attended Artesia Grammar School and graduated from Excelsior High School in 1938. In 1941 she married Fred Troost, who also had migrated to Artesia from Iowa. Together they had five sons and one daughter. They started dairying, first on Pioneer Blvd., then Orangethorpe, both in Artesia, then moved to 183rd in Cerritos. In 1971 the final dairy move was to Mira Loma where they were faithful members of Church on the Hill, Norco. Annie was a homemaker with family life centered around home, church and school. She loved her family and faithfully sent cards and notes to all. She enjoyed skating, water skiing, bowling and golf, and she and Fred enjoyed travels to many countries with tour groups. Annie taught Sunday School for 25 years and was involved in VBS, PTA, and Mothers' Club. She enjoyed singing in church choirs in Artesia and Norco. Fred died in 1998, the married children moved their dairies away, and Annie moved to Ontario which she called home for many years. Annie is pre-deceased by husband Fred, brothers Shoerd & Broer Lanting, eldest son John, and great-grandson Garyn. Annie is survived by children Jinet Troost, Chowchilla; Maynard & Marie Troost, Bakersfield; Phil & Deb Troost, Lake Arthur, NM; Randy & Joanne Verhoeven, Huntington Beach, Gary & Wendy Troost, Stayton, OR; and Fred A. Troost, Escondido, sister Aggie Fikse, San Jacinto, and sister-in-law Audrey Lanting, Chino. Also survived by 16 grandchildren, 40 great grandchildren, 4 great- great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Viewing will be June 13 from 6-8 pm at Drapers Mortuary. Funeral services will be June 14 at 10:00 a.m. in the Chapel of Ontario Christian High School, 931 W. Philadelphia, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be given to Salem Christian Home or Inland Christian Home.

My condolences to each and every one of you. What a wonderfully gracious lady I remember the matriarch of the Troost family to be! I know that you, dear family, will certainly miss her; but I know, too, that she will always have a special place in your hearts as she will in the hearts of all those who knew her.

Thank you for sharing so many photographic memories of Mrs. Troost's family life. She certainly was a pioneer of faith with her husband and family. "The Saints Go Marching In ...". Covenant blessings belong to us. ... Mr. Groe

Dear Troost Family,
We were saddened to hear of the death of your mother/grandmother, but know how ready she was to meet her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She and I have been corresponding back and forth for several years. Her recent note to me was as late as this last February, and I had written to her about a month ago, not expecting any return response since she move from her home to Inland. She wrote so well and the letters were so legible even when she was in her 90's. She always talked about her children and included humorous cartoons and/or jokes that demonstrated her zest and joy of living. I will send some of the letters and mine to Jinet during the next while.
Both John and his father, Fred, were board presidents of Ontario Christian School during my years of administration at OCS. I acknowledged that fact in a book that I self-published, and both Jinet and Annie were always so thankful that I had recognized them.
We are sorry that we will not be able to attend the Viewing or the Funeral, as much as we would have liked to have been there to show our support also during this time. Family members of ours are coming from Minnesota next week, on the very day of the funeral, as Jinet can explain. We will be mailing a Memory Donation to Ontario Christian School.
We send our love and condolences, as we pray that God will grant His promised comfort through His Word. He promises never to leave us or forsake us. God's grace is sufficient. .... George & Betty Groen
