Just as she loved her family, Anna’s mournful family lovingly commends her to the Lord.
Less than a month after the
passing of Peter, her beloved
husband of 65 years, Anna, 86, passed away suddenly at home in Kelowna, BC on November 20, 2012. Born June 17, 1926, in
Burstall, Saskatchewan, Anna moved to the Okanagan when she was 16, where she met Peter. Anna and Peter were married on April 15, 1947 and for the duration of their marriage, working hand in hand, they complimented each other with their individual personalities and gifts. Anna loved her
children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren immensely. The walls in her home are a gallery of family photographs, so she could have her beloved ones close to her always.
A gifted homemaker, Anna also loved music. She was a
talented seamstress; she also knitted and crocheted, which were among the many hobbies she taught to her family. Anna’s greatest talent, and greatest legacy, however, was her passion for food and cooking. She experienced joy in preparing wonderful meals for family and friends. Her
hospitality was beyond compare and everyone left the family home well fed and happy. She inspired her children to share in her passion for cooking. Anna is survived by: daughters Judy Meier (Philip), of Kelowna; Donna Bohn, of Calgary; Debbie Galinski (Paul), of Powell River, BC; son James Bohn, of Kelowna; grandchildren Daphne; Greg (Kellie);
Jason (Christine); Christine (Steve), Devan and Shaylee; great-grandchildren Karrson, Keaton, Ava, Cameron,
Cassidy and Neviah. She was predeceased by her parents Nicholas and Mary Bosch and is survived by brothers and sisters Don (Val) Bosch, Roy Bosch, Paul Bosch, Barb
Galloway, Angela Scott and Eleanor Gatzke. Prayers will be recited on Sunday, November 25, at 7:00 pm and a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, November 26, at 10:30 am at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 839 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers,
donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetes
Association, 1589 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna, BC,
V1Y 5Y7, (250) 762-9447.
