August 17, 1918 – May 17, 2013
The family of Annie Dannewald wish to announce her peaceful passing on May 17, 2013 at the age of 94 years. Annie was born in Gadsby, Alberta on August 17, 1918 to Thomas and Rachel Robinson. She moved to Stettler where she met Albert Dannewald, whom she married on September 9, 1946. Growing up in a family of eight children, mom was from a generation of strong women whose daily lives revolved around doing what needed to be done. Mom could make something out of nothing – whether it be canning, sewing, knitting or crocheting. A tireless worker, she loved to work in her yard and garden on the acreage south of Stettler. Mom’s excellent health and determination allowed her to remain in her own home until two years ago when she moved to Heart Haven and then to Lacombe Continuing Care Centre. Mom was predeceased by her husband Albert in 1985, as well as her brothers and sisters Jack, Jim, Alice, Laura, Irene and Edna. She is survived by two daughters, Alma Proctor of Stettler and Marie (Howard) Antoniuk of Red Deer. Mom will be fondly remembered by her grandchildren, Brent (Jean) Proctor of Camrose, Shelby (Terry) Keeping of Alix, Darren (Nadine) Antoniuk of Edmonton, Craig (Andrea) Antoniuk of Edmonton, and Shane (Anne) Antoniuk of North Carolina. She loved visiting with her great grandchildren Brock Proctor, Jacob and Wilson Keeping, Ava and Cael Antoniuk and Alicia and Julian Antoniuk. Mom is also survived by one brother, Earl Robinson; sister-in-law Phyllis Robinson, sister-in-law and brother-in-law Frances and Keith Ferris of Calgary, as well as many nieces and nephews and their families. A memorial tea was held on Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 12:00 P.M. at Brennen Funeral Home, 4819-49 Street, Stettler, Alberta.
