Anne Zacharias (nee Letkeman)

1916 - 2012

Anne_ZachariassqAnne Zacharias, our Mom, was born to Jacob K. and Anna (nee Kroeker) Letkeman on August 3, 1916 in the village of Reinland. Her mother passed away when she was two years old and she lived with her grandparents until her father married Helena Hildebrand a year later. Upon confession of her faith in Jesus as her Saviour, Mom was baptized on June 7, 1938 by Bishop Wilhelm H. Falk. On December 8, 1940 Mom married Frank Zacharias. Mom and Dad spent their first years in Winkler, farmed in the Kaleida and Bagot areas for eight years and then returned to Winkler, where they lived their remaining years. Due to failing health, Mom moved to Salem Home in 2011. On August 16, 2012 at the age of 96 years, she went home to be with Jesus. 

Mom leaves to mourn her passing her children, Trudie Ellis of La Salle, Esther and Ike Penner of Winkler, Lydia Zacharias of Winkler, Sharon and Ron Enns of the Morden area, 11 grandchildren and their spouses, 27 great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren and one sister, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Frank in 1997, two sisters and three brothers. 

Funeral service was held on Tuesday August 21, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Winkler EMMC with interment at the Winkler Cemetery. 

Our gratitude to Pastor Wilbert and Hilda Friesen for their ministry during this time. The family is grateful for the excellent and compassionate care Mom received at Salem Home. Thanks also to Wiebe Funeral Home (Kiley Wilson) for their service to the family.

I am so sorry to hear about your Mother. From what I knew of her she had a great personality and keen sense of humour. I recall sitting beside her and Marie in my living room and just enjoyed hearing them both reminise together. That is a time I cherish.

I am sorry I heard about this too late to attend the funeral.

Again, I want to extend my sympathy to you her family members.

I was sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. As you know, ours followed soon after, and I believe with all my heart the sisters are together now in a way that they could not be in the last several years.

All the best to you and yours. I will always remember my Aunt Annie - her kindness, her cheerfulness, her big heart...
