Annie M. Penner (nee Wiebe)

1916 – 2007

Penner, Annie.jpgOn Friday, December 7, 2007 at Salem Home in Winkler, Annie Penner, aged 91 years went to her eternal home.

Annie was born to Jacob J. and Mary Wiebe on March 28, 1916 in Morden, Manitoba.  Early in her life she put her faith in Jesus Christ and was baptized and accepted into the Mennonite Brethren Church in Winkler.

On July 12, 1936 she and Henry J. Penner committed their lives to each other in marriage and found much joy in this relationship that spanned just over 60 years.  In the coming years, 4 daughters became a part of their family.

Together with her family, Annie enjoyed many fulfilling years on the farm in Kronsgart and moved to Winkler in the fall of 1966.  Annie actively participated in the Winkler M.B. Church’s women’s group, served with Henry as a deacon couple and supported the local church through faithful prayers and generosity for many years.  Annie was known for her gracious hospitality and genuine love for people. 

She will be sadly missed by her 3 daughters, Marilyn and Walter Braun of Morden, Jenny and Rennie Regehr of Toronto, ON, Julia and Rod Zook of Munich, Germany and St. Petersburg, FL, son-in-law, Albert Dyck of Winkler, as well as 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her husband Henry J. Penner in 1996 and 1 daughter, Velma Dyck in 2006.

Funeral service was held on Thursday, December 13, 2007 at 3:00 pm at Winkler Mennonite Brethren Church with Rev. James Peters and Rev. David Friesen officiating.  Interment followed at Winkler Cemetery.

If friends so desire, donations may be made in Annie’s memory to the Gideon Memorial Bible Plan Box 778 Winkler, MB R6W 4A8.
