November 26, 1938 - December 15, 2019
Fannie was born on November 26, 1938, on the farm in Stonehenge, Saskatchewan. She was the youngest and last surviving child of 14 children born to her parents, Stefan and Tinca Toma. In her late teens, she moved off the farm to Regina where she worked for the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. In 1961, she met her husband Melvin. Love blossomed and they were married on June 30, 1962, at Grace Lutheran Church in Regina. They spent the first 15 years of their marriage in Saskatoon, where their children were born. When the kids were old enough, Fannie went back to work as a cashier for Econo-Mart. In 1977, the family moved to Mel's hometown of Winnipeg. During this time, Fannie worked as a cashier for Loblaws and Superstore, retiring in 1998. Fannie enjoyed travelling with Mel, visiting every province from coast to coast. They also made several trips to Hawaii, Las Vegas, Mexico, as well as further destinations that included Indonesia, the Mediterranean and one special trip with her sister Pearl to visit their parent's birthplace of Romania. A wonderful homemaker, she loved to cook, bake, and garden. The coffee pot was always on whenever friends and family would come to visit.
Fannie is survived by her husband Melvin, son Craig, daughter Lori Pardini and grandson Mark Pardini, as well as many members of her extended family.
Funeral service will be held at Sherwood Park Lutheran Church, 7 Tudor Cres., Winnipeg, on Friday, December 20 at 11:00 a.m. Interment will be followed at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Sherwood Park Lutheran Church, 7 Tudor Cres., Winnipeg, MB R2K 2A5, in Fannie's memory.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
To Uncle Mel and family; My condolences to you and yours. Even though this is a sad time it is reassuring that in my heart she is now at peace and back together with her sister Pearl (my favourite Gramma). Time has a way of taking family in different directions but I do have warm memories of the past with Auntie Fanny, my Godmother. She will be missed. - Posted by: JOHN W.
