The family of Anna Keppler (Annie) is sad to announce her passing at the age of 88. For the past several years Annie resided at Middlechurch Home, where she made many friends with staff and other residents. Previous to this Annie called East Kildonan her home. Here she raised her three children and cared for her beautifully kept yard and home.
Anna is was predeceased by her husband Hermann Keppler in 2004, her mother Maria Rempel (Schbanzikowa) in 2003 and very early in their lives her sister Nadia and her brother Alexander passed in the USSR.
Annie was born in 1930, in Irkutzk. In 1950 she arrived in Manitoba and was joined by fiancé Hermann Keppler in 1951, they married in 1951.
Left with her memory are her elder sister Asja Dietze (and family); Annie's children, Alvin (Karen) Keppler, Dieter (Midge) Keppler and Robert (Karen) Keppler; grandchildren, Zeena, Christopher, Jonathan, Christina, Rebecca, Heather and Melanie; great-grandchildren, Liam, Taylor, Carter and Dylan.
Annie loved her family dearly and she also had a warm spot for her cats and dogs, of which there were always one or two in the house. Friends will remember her as a warm and giving soul who could and would speak her truth even if it pinched a bit.
Our family gives very special thanks to the staff and her resident friends at Middlechurch Home for their special care and friendship.
If you wish to honour Annie, donations may be made to an animal charity of your choice.
A short service is planned on Tuesday, July 23 at 10:00 a.m. at Klassen Funeral Home, 1897 Henderson Highway, followed by a light lunch. Family members are invited to attend interment at Elmwood Cemetery after services and lunch.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Very, very sorry to hear of Mrs. Keppler's passing. My mother Helen Lostowsky and Mrs. Keppler were very good friends. What I remember from when I was younger is that, though she was a tiny lady, she had a lot of spunk. I also remember her gorgeous flowers and a beautifully kept yard. I have always considered Mrs. Keppler to be a lovely person and she will be greatly missed by her family and friends. - Posted by: Linda Gaba (Friend) on: Jul 26, 2019

  • My condolences to the family. I am sorry, I did not know the funeral was today or I would have attended to pay my respect. Mrs. Keppler, was a short lady with a big voice. Someone you knew you had to do as she told you or else. But still had a very humorous, loving side to her. I will always remember her in their cabin out at Twin Beaches. Many a great summer was spent out there. She will be sadly missed by all her came to know her over the years. May she Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Dan Wark (Family friend) on: Jul 23, 2019
