February 9, 1929 – April 5, 2013
Anna passed away
peacefully, surrounded by her family on April 5, 2013.
Born and raised in Rutland, Anna will be missed by
all who knew her. She is
survived by her devoted
husband of 64 years, Ben Sr., her children Christine (Les) Bricker, Fran (Bruce) McMurchy, Don (Lynn)
Biro, Ben Jr. (Mona) Biro, daughters of her heart,
Margo Seifert, and Sheri
Holoien, 12 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, her
sister A. Bea Parkes, numerous nieces and nephews
and extended families.
One day, in 1946, while working at the packing house , Anna kissed an apple and threw it to Ben. Ben kissed it
and threw it back. So their lives together began.
Our family would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation
for the care and compassion given to Mom by Dr. Gregory McCloskey, May Bennett Wellness Centre, Sutherland Hills Rest Home, and Spring Valley Care Centre.
Mom especially loved her work at the Rutland Hospital
Auxiliary. At her request, donations can be made in
her name to the R.H.A.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
