She leaves to cherish her memory her three children, Aaron Dirk, Denise Dirk Feininger, Desiree Dirk Coyle (Bryan); grandchild, Hannah Polonsky; sisters, Katherine Schafer and Beverly Hatch; many treasured nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends.

Everyone who mourns her loss is invited to celebrate her life by sharing a coffee and this prayer with loved ones on a sunny spring morning:

Loving God,

We live in the mystery of the new life

you promised in Jesus

And the new life that

surrounds us every spring.

Help us welcome,

connect and love by example

All those we know

and all those we don’t usually see.

Open our eyes and make us one whole and holy people.

In addition, the family invites those who knew her well to join them for the funeral mass which will be celebrated at Holy Family Parish – 1451 Strachan Rd SE on Tuesday, April 12th at 1:00pm with Father Rodel Abanto celebrant.

In lieu of cut flowers, the family encourages you to grow them instead and to think of Anne as they unfold and share their beauty and enhance your life just as she did for so many throughout her many years. Condolences may be made at
