Anna Ottele Schultz (nee Becker)
September 14th, 1918 – October 5th, 2018
Annie was born to Wilhelm and Emma Becker (nee Steg) in the Friedensthal District of Manitoba. She was the oldest of four children, Anna, Violet Krietz, Ruth Berft and Walter Becker. Annie attended school at Emerado School, Friedensthal up to Grade 8. She and her siblings walked to school and home every day along the railway track. Annie married Emil G. Schultz in March of 1940. They farmed together on NW 22-1-3E. Emil and Annie planted all the trees of the shelterbelt around their farmyard by hand. They were blessed with one son, Raymond Leslie. Annie loved her garden and put up lots of canned and frozen vegetables as well as homemade jams, jellies, pickles and relishes.   Annie’s home was her pride and joy. She loved to cook and bake, her homemade bread was always a welcome treat.   Chickens were another favorite of Annie’s.   In the spring she would order chicks and they would be delivered to Dominion City by train. Once the hens were old enough to lay eggs, the eggs would be sold to local people and some were shipped to customers in Winnipeg and Ontario on the train. In the fall, chickens were butchered and put in the freezer or canned. Many delicious roast chicken meals were enjoyed by family and friends invited to Sunday supper. Besides selling eggs, cream and butter were also sold to help raise money to pay the taxes. In 1971, Emil and Anne moved to Winnipeg to work as custodians of apartment buildings.   They returned to Emerson, purchasing a home in 1976 and remained there until they moved into Emerson Estates in 1991. During their years together Emil and Annie, on a few occasions, travelled to Arizona for a couple of weeks in the winter months. They spent time visiting with family spending the winter in the sunny south. They also travelled to Vancouver and Victoria with Les and Alice. Other special times were short trips around the province with friends and neighbors to fish and sightsee.  They also drove to Alberta to visit with family.
After Emil passed away in 2012, Annie moved to Morden in 2013 to be closer to her son and his family. She resided in her apartment in Morden Manor 2 until July of 2018. She spent a month in Boundary Trails Health Centre due to a fall and then moved to Salem Home for her final weeks. Annie was able to celebrate her 100th birthday with approximately 60 family and friends.   Her wedding gown, veil, gloves and bouquet were on display for the celebration.  Her family, son, grandsons, brother, sisters, nieces, nephews, godchildren, Emil’s brothers and sister and their children were very precious to her, including all the in-laws. She was “Mom” to Les for almost 78 years.
Left to mourn her passing are son Les, wife Alice and grandsons Raymond Tracy, Douglas, Stephen and Andrew with their partners and families; sister Ruth and her husband August; sister-in-law Elsie Schultz. God shared Annie with us for many years and when He called her home, heaven received a very special person.
Annie passed away peacefully at Salem Home on Tuesday, October 5th, 2018.

We wanted to share our condolences with Annie's family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3,4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.
