Anna Hunt (nee Funk)

1955 – 2021 

In the early hours of Sunday April 25, 2021 at the Pembina-Manitou Health Centre with her family by her side, Ann Hunt age 66 went to be with her Lord. 

Ann was predeceased by her daughter, Monica (2016) and her parents Diedricht and Susan (Wiebe) Funk. Left to mourn her passing is her husband, Bob, son, Gareth, grandson, Camden, her sisters, Liz Funk, Kathy Klassen (Jake), brother, Bernie Funk (Karen) and her sister-in-law, Nan Christie and their families. 

Ann’s gift from God was her innate ability to care for others which led to her chosen profession as a health care aide; first at Tabor Home until she retired and then when she started again at the Pembina-Manitou Health Centre. During this time, Ann was very involved with CUPE; she helped to maintain a good working environment for staff. This also led to her having many regional and provincial CUPE friends. Throughout her battle with Multiple System Atrophy, Ann slowly retired from her work and her passions. Even as her body failed her, she never stopped greeting everyone with a beautiful smile and a cheery word. She had decided upon diagnosis that she would meet this disease head on with a positive attitude. With grace and courage, Ann moved out of the family home and into the PMHC in February of 2019 to be cared for where she had cared for so many others. Ann had a very spiritual side and always attended the Zion Calvin United Church in Darlingford until she was unable to attend any longer. Ann was a very doting grandmother to Camden and delighted in any Time they could spend together. They especially enjoyed making cookies and going shopping together for new games. Ann loved to garden and had two green thumbs. She kept a beautiful yard with numerous flower beds, and it was a sad day for her when she had to start giving them up.  Another great passion for Ann was reading. Any spare moment she had a book open and a thank you to Ann Morrow who kept reading to her after she lost the ability. Ann loved to travel and over the years had been from ocean to ocean and down to the Florida Keys. She also loved to snowmobile with her husband and friends in her earlier years. Ann had a sense of community spending many years on the Darlingford Hall Committee with her husband and also as secretary of the Darlingford Cemetery Committee, which she was finally forced to give up. After moving to Manitou, Ann spent twelve years as secretary for the Pembina Archers Association until she couldn’t do it anymore. 

You have fought a long a courageous fight; now it is time to rest. You will be dearly missed by your family and friends.
