Anne was raised on a farm in Ozerna, Manitoba. During the depression, she joined her older sisters in Thunder Bay to work as a waitress. When she returned, she married Fred Soltys on February 12, 1947 and settled on a farm in the Ozerna district. She was famous for her cooking abilities and always made excellent buns. She loved to cook for family gatherings and made sure no one went away hungry. Anne was an active parishioner of St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church of Ozerna, Manitoba for many years. When she and Fred retired from farming and moved to Winnipeg in 1994, she then became a parishioner of St. Basil's Ukrainian Catholic Church. For the past two years she resided in the Sandy Lake Personal Care home. Thank you to all the staff of the SLPCH, palliative care and to all the friends and family for their care and compassion. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Anne's memory may be made to the St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church Cemetery Fund. Divine Liturgy (Funeral Mass) will be celebrated on Wednesday morning, November 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church, Sandy Lake, Manitoba.
