Anne was born in St. Ambroise, Manitoba on October 3, 1924 and was baptized the same year.  Anne later confirmed her faith in 1967 at the Redeemer Lutheran Church, Portage La Prairie.  She married Erwin Balko on October 7, 1967 also at Redeemer.  He was the love of her life.  Together they farmed for 20 years before retiring to Winkler in 1992.

The congregation will remember Anne as a very special friend whose faith in Christ guided her throughout her life.  She cherished her long and happy life with Erwin.
