NEUFELDT, AnnePosted: May 24th, 2017
January 6, 1925 – May 20, 2017
On May 20, 2017, God granted our mother, ANNE NEUFELDT, her wish and took her to her heavenly home. Mom passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital at the age of 92 years with family by her side. She follows her husband Jake who was waiting to greet her. Others she looked forward to seeing again were her parents, all of her siblings, and many friends and loved ones whose lives she enriched with her love.
Anne came to Canada as an infant with her parents and siblings in 1926, settled in Coaldale, and was married to Jake Neufeldt for 66 years. Together they raised four children, Doreen (Duncan) Lloyd, Leona (Ron) Born, Dennis Neufeldt (Helen Henderson) and Norma (Les) Neufeld; six grandchildren, Darren Lloyd (Charlotte Haig), Brent (Felicia) Lloyd, Jason (Titia) Born, Carleen (Brad) Shauer, Leanne (Rob) Dyck and Carissa Neufeld (Michael Skinner); and great-grandchildren, Grace, Emily, Graham, Lindsay, Malcolm, Everett, Payton, Travis, Caleb, Kendra, Adriana, Malia, Colin, Ewan and Faye.
She volunteered many hours in the community and in the church. Hospitality was one of her many gifts. Family and friends were always welcome in their home for coffee and home baking. She leaves our family with a legacy of prayer and deep faith in God.
