Anne Thiessen (nee Dyck)

1948 ~ 2020

 On Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at her home, Anne Thiessen age 72, of Winkler MB, peacefully went to her eternal rest.

Mom received her cancer diagnosis on her 70th birthday. Throughout the process, we never heard her complain and through it all she wanted to honor God. Her amazing strength and perseverance were evident to us all.  While we have said goodbye to her earthly body, we know she is with the Lord and in her eternal home. Her faith was at the cornerstone of her life and she shared it with family and friends. Her compassion, and friendly smile were known by many.

 She is survived by her husband, John and her children, Angela (Jim) Apperley of Altona, Sherry (Chris) Thomas of Winkler and Richard (Alana) Thiessen of Winkler, eight grandchildren, Rylan, Cohen and Kam Thomas, Guerin, Ava and Lane Apperley, Madison and Riley Thiessen. She was also predeceased by her parents, Isaac G and Mary Dyck and siblings, Liz Reimer, Tina Fehr, George Dyck and Dave Dyck.

 A private memorial service was held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 29, 2020 at Wiebe Funeral Home Winkler with interment at Westridge Memorial Gardens.
