Anne Patterson (nee Wiebe)
1931 - 2017

 

Anne was born on a farm south of Morden near Haskett on February 13, 1931 to Ben and Margaret Wiebe. She was the second youngest of seven children. She was born with Spina Bifida and subsequently had many difficulties throughout her life. She completed grade eight in school but because of health concerns could not continue consistently. During this time Anne helped out on the farm whenever her health would permit. The family eventually moved to Morden and as a young adult Anne worked at the sewing factory and then at the Morden Times office. In 1967, Anne married Cliff Patterson, a widower with four children. She stayed home and worked as a homemaker after her marriage. Cliff passed away in 1988 and Anne remained in their home until October 2004 when she moved to Oakwest Estates on Gaslight Drive. She then moved to the Tabor Home in May 2007. Her interests included knitting, ceramics, gardening, listening to the radio and reading. Her faith was important to her; she is a member of the Morden E.M.M. church.

Anne was predeceased by her parents, husband, sisters, Kathrine, Margarite and brothers, Bernard, David and Abram. Left to mourn her passing are her sister, Mary (Abe) Friesen, sister-in-law, Annie Wiebe as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. All remember her as a cheerful, compassionate person in spite of a lifetime of pain, disappointment and hope deferred. She was one super special person.

Memorial service at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday March 29, 2017 at the Morden EMMC. Interment at Hillside Cemetery at a later date.

If friends so desire, donations may be made in Anne’s memory to Samaritan’s Purse.
