1921 – 2016

ANNA MAY MALCHOW, beloved wife and soul mate of Harold “Fritz”, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at the age of 94 years.

Anna was born on August 13, 1921, the youngest child of Kitty Macdonald and Amos Eaton. She is survived by her children, Larry (Virginia), Katherine (Maria), Keith, Harry and Rod (Cynthia). Anna is predeceased by her siblings Mona Yorgason and Jack Eaton.

Mom’s career was her family. She loved her Blue Jays and curling. She also loved and devoted countless hours to the betterment of “Little League Baseball”.

Mom and Dad travelled to Panama Canal shortly after selling their construction business “Malchow the Excavator”. Many of the projects they worked on can still be seen all over the landscape of southern and central Alberta.

After retirement, they went to the Yukon, built a humble placer shack and tried their hand at placer mining. Mom and Dad are renowned for completing ‘a trillion’ trips up and down the Alaska Highway.

Mom was a very kind, caring individual who loved her grandchildren, great- grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren without condition. They loved her just as dearly during her last days. Lisa (granddaughter), Darren (grandson) and Lindsey (great-granddaughter) kept vigil over their beloved Grams night and day.

Anna May and Fritz will have celebrated 75 years of marriage on April 12, 2016.

Mom, your kindness, goodness and strength will be our legacy. We miss you.

At Anna May’s request, no funeral service will be held.
