November 29, 1933 - October 11, 2021

It is with great sorrow that we announce the tragic passing of our mother on October 11, 2021. She was predeceased by her husband Hans (2020) and son Georg (2009).
Anna is survived by her children, Monika, Horst (Mark), Ralph (Brenda), Ursula (Gareth), 12 grandchildren (and their partners), and one great-granddaughter, brother Willi Meer (Gertrud), and sisters, Katharina Schneider and Elisabeth Jansen.
Mom was a woman of strong Roman Catholic belief and lived her faith daily. She was fiercely independent, selfless woman who helped many throughout her life. She took great joy in nature and enjoyed spending time with her family.

John 14:18, 27 "I will not leave you
comfortless: I will come to you…
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give
unto you… Let not your heart be troubled."

We miss you, but know that
you are in a better place.
Tschuss Oma, until we meet again.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I am deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Anna. As a new immigrant to Canada several years ago, Anna (or Oma as she insisted I call her), welcomed me with open arms, and treated me with dignity and respect. Her warmth and kindness will always be remembered with fondness. May she Rest In Peace wrapped in the loving arms of God. To the Backe family please know you are in my thoughts as you go through this very difficult time. Love Baz R. - Posted by: Baz R (Friend ) on: Oct 21, 2021

  • Anna and I were co-workers at the above mentioned. Anna was a lovely and cheerful lady and it was a pleasure to have known her. My deepest condolences to her family on her passing. I would like to share a quote with Anna's family Anna has not died, but gone away, to a better place, free of pain and suffering. We will see her again someday. Rest in peace Anna. You are loved and will be missed. - Posted by: Patricia Homenick (Co-worker at department of Finance, Mb Govt) on: Oct 19, 2021

  • I met Anna when we were both instructors at Herzing Career College. She was instructing keypunch skills in the early days of computer data entry. Anna was always a positive, welcoming and friendly woman. My condolences to her family. - Posted by: Rae Anne Paxton (Former co-worker) on: Oct 19, 2021
