Annie Peters (nee Friesen)
1929 – 2019
 
Annie Peters of Morden, MB passed away in the early hours of Tuesday August 13, 2019 at her residence at the Tabor Home.
 
She was born January 22, 1929 in the RM of Stanley (Osterwick) to her parents, Isaac and Anna Friesen. Annie was the oldest of four children. She attended school in Osterwick and at the age of 19, she was baptized upon the confession of her faith in Jesus Christ at the Glencross Church. Annie married Dave Peters on July 17, 1949 and they were married for 36 years and together, they had four children. Throughout their life together, they lived in Morden, Roseisle, Killarney and Graysville. Dave passed away in 1985, which lead Annie to move to Morden to be closer to her family. In her lifetime, Annie raised her family and took house cleaning jobs and lunch hour duties at the Graysville school. Later in life, she received her Red River Home Care Attendant certificate. She served several clients in that field and also volunteered at the Morden Thrift Shop and the Tabor Home. Annie loved to garden and harvest in abundance from the garden plots she planted. Aging and with failing health, she moved to the Buhler condo in Morden in 2012. Eventually she moved to the hospital for four months and then to her residence at the Tabor Home in February 2018. Throughout Annie’s life, church involvement was very important to her; serving in various capacities including teaching Sunday School, being part of the ladies sewing circle, janitorial work, childcare during services and hosting five-day clubs. She also enjoyed helping out in camp kitchens. Annie prayed for and wrote many missionaries for many years. She also prayed diligently for her children and it concerned her greatly that each would come to eternal salvation and their own faith walk with the God that she loved.
 
Annie was predeceased by her husband, Dave, parents, Isaac and Anna and her brothers, Dave and Isaac. She is survived by her four children, 11 grandchildren and six great grandchildren: Ken (Brenda) Peters, Kim Suski, Trish (Simon) Klotz, Jen; Barb (Larry) Bluhm, Leanne, Travis, Amber; Ron (Betty) Peters, Brad (Holly), Sydney, Elin, Isla, Charlotte, Byron (Carrie), Harlow, Christal (Jason) Hildebrand, Lennon; Verna (Cliff) Neufeld, Quinn (Benjamin) May, Chase (Maureen). She is also survived by one sister, Helen (Henry) Gerbrand, five sisters-in-law and one brother-in-law.
 
Funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday August 17, 2019 at the Morden EMMC with interment at the Glencross Cemetery. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff and volunteers at the Tabor Home for the care that was given to Annie throughout her stay there.

I have many good memories of Aunt Annie. Her garden, canning, always something sweet on the table, friends to all and her praying. My mother, Helena Giesbrecht, loved receiving letters from your mom. They were written the way she thought—no pretensions and not judgements but with love and care.
You, as a family, now have a different chapter opening. Many a time you will catch yourself planning your day around a visit and you realize she is gone. You will make her favourite dish and want to bring her some and realize you cannot. But realize this, she is with you, watching over you, still praying and still talking a mile a minute and still loving you. This is where she wanted to go all those times. She is standing at the end of the road, suitcase in hand, waving and smiling with Our Lord guiding her on the path to Heaven with the angels rejoicing. Bless you all.

Your Mom always had a cute little wave or a few kind words while she was on her daily walks when she passed my office downtown, such a beautiful soul! Heaven’s gain is our loss.
