Ann

Adrianna Petronella Maria (Ann) Wecker passed away peacefully in her sleep at the Lacombe Hospital on December 31st, 2011. Ann was born on May 10, 1922 in Udenhout, Holland and came to Canada with her parents at the age of three. She married Dan Wecker in 1946 and for most of their married life, they farmed just west of Bentley, before finally retiring in Lacombe. Ann loved cooking, gardening, painting, and playing cards, particularly with her special friend Hilda Brouwer. But the joy of her life was her family, and she was so delighted to live long enough to enjoy her great- grandchildren. We will forever miss her twinkling blue eyes, wonderful smile, and generous hugs. She will be lovingly remembered by her family: daughter Sheila (Lloyd) Stephenson of Calgary, and their children Troy and Kristy; son Jack (Dianne) Wecker of Beaumont, and their daughters Danielle (Matthew) Ramsay, and Jaclyn (Sebastian) Fuhr; and son Ryan (Antionette) Wecker of Hanna, and their daughters Amber (Danny) Marshall, and Melanie (Adam) Roth. Her six great-grandchildren (Ethan, Ryan, and Cooper Marshall; Bennett and Gavin Roth; and Ainsley Fuhr) brought her so much enjoyment. Ann is also survived by her sisters Nellie Austin, Mary Wilton-Davies, and MaryAnn Platz; and brothers John Van Leest, Tony VanLeest, and Walter VanLeest; as well as many nieces, nephews, and countless friends. Ann was predeceased by her sister May, and husband Dan. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Kinish and the wonderful staff of Unit B at the Lacombe Hospital for their gentle, loving care of Ann. Funeral Services will be held Friday, January 6, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at Woody Nook Christian Reformed Church. If desired, memorial contributions may be made to the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre, 5430 – 47 Ave, Lacombe, AB T4L 1G8. Condolences may be made through
