ANNA (HALABUT) CYR
It is with heartfelt sadness the family of Anna Cyr announces the peaceful passing of our beloved mother, grannie and baba at the young age of 71.
Left to mourn Anna's passing are her children, Traci (Richard) Henzel, Dallas (Kari) Klassen; grandchildren, Keaton (Jilian), Kolran (Jennifer), Danika (Jenn), Jordan, Keanan; great-grandchildren, Scarlet and Greyson.
Anna was predeceased by her husband Kenneth Cyr in 2016 and her parents, Ilko and Catherine Halabut.
Anna was born on October 21, 1951 in Caracus, Venezuela and immigrated into Canada at a very young age.
Anna took great pride in some of her past work experience including Betel Home. That led her into becoming involved with unions and finding a new passion for politics with the NDP. Eventually she started a new career path in Real Estate. Later Anna spent decades taking care of her loved ones, including her elderly parents and then later her husband. She gave up her fun summer days at the cabin in Poplar Bay and moved to the city to be closer to her children and grandchildren, but found new fun, including becoming a social club member of her block, running Christmas drives, playing or calling bingo, as well as card nights, making many new friends along the way, (special thanks to Helen).
Anna was very excited to learn of extended family through DNA testing, fairly recently, forming an unbreakable bond and friendship ever since.
Anna will be remembered for her infectious laugh as well as her regular visits to stealthily drop items off on the door steps of her loved ones.
Mom, Grannie you are truly loved and missed. You left us way too soon, but we are grateful that you are no longer suffering and in pain.
Those we love don't go away,
they walk beside us everyday....
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
still loved, still missed and very dear.
In honour of Anna's wishes, no funeral service will be held and cremation has taken place.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Yes her infectious laugh will be remembered by all who knew her❤ I have so many memories from my childhood being with her and was never allowed to call her auntie! I have to share a story of how your mom and dad paid for my ears to get pierced for my 12th birthday. I was scared but your mom said don't worry I will be right beside you. Yep she was and when the Dr put the needle in my ear blood trickled down my neck and we heard a boom! That was your mom. She passed out! The hole in my ear is still crooked till this day. Hugs to you both and your families and RIP Ann💐😘 - Posted by: Shelley Pedersen (Niece) on: Jan 07, 2023
