Anneliese (Anna) Penner

Our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Anneliese (Anna) Penner of Carman, Manitoba passed peacefully from this world into glory on August 3, 2021. Mom was born to Cornelius and Annie Peters on September 24, 1934 in Winnipeg. She spent her first few years on a farm near Niverville and then in town before moving to the North End of Winnipeg in 1944. Mom gave her heart to Jesus when she was still in Niverville and was baptized at the old South End Church in Winnipeg. She was very involved there and loved to sing in choirs. On a blind date in early 1955, Anna was introduced to Bill Penner, a tall, dark and handsome farmer from Osborne Manitoba and they married July 28, 1956. In 1959, Dad and Mom found a farm to their liking in Elm Creek and moved there in the fall with Calvin, their firstborn. Lori was born very shortly after the move. Over the next few years, Bob and Charles were added to the family. Mom took on many volunteer opportunities, including being the “sound person” for Elm Creek Double Trio and many years at the Carman MCC store. In 1994, they made the decision to semi-retire and move off the farm to Carman. This was a time when Mom and Dad did a lot more traveling, including bus tours and cruises. After 56 years of marriage, Dad passed away in 2012. Anna was a prayer warrior, making time each day to pray for each of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren by name, as well as many others. For that legacy especially, we thank you deeply Mom.

To mourn her passing and celebrate her life, Anna Penner leaves her children Calvin & Gloria Penner, with their children Colin (Lori), Nikki (Morgan), Scott (Andrea) and Jessica (Tyler), Lori & Andy Wilder, Bob & Christine Penner with their children Avery (Scott) and Mitchell, Chuck & Marlene Penner with their children Katrina (Doug), Britta (Brad) and Gabi, as well as 10½ great-grandchildren. Anna was pre-deceased by her brothers John and Neil. She is also remembered by her sister Evelyn (Clarence), brother Randy (Carol) and sisters-in-law Frieda Peters and Pat Peters.

The family would like to express their deep thanks to all those who cared for Mom, especially in the past few years. This includes many members of Friends Community Church in Carman, her neighbours at O’Brien Oaks, long-time friends from Elm Creek and the “In Good Hands” caregivers that helped Mom through her final few weeks.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the building fund for the Back Door Youth Centre in Carman.

You will make known to me the way of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.             Psalm 16:11
