July 21, 1937 ~ June 9, 2009
Born July 21, 1937 at Lampman Sask. Anne passed away on June 9, 2009 after a brief battle with cancer.
Anne was predeceased by her husband Charles (Bud) Drake; three sisters, Francis (Ed) Rood, Margaret (Joe) Myers, Barbara (Matt) Herberholtz, and one brother Paul (Arlene) Messer. She is survived by 3 sisters Marie Forsang, Betty (Bob) Wimmer, Clara Kuntz and five brothers, Jack (Marge) Messer, Andy (Lillian) Messer, John (Bea) Messer, Joe (Julie) Messer and Martin Messer. She is also survived by a large extended family of nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews all of whom were very close to her heart.
Anne was a great cook and spent many hours cooking and baking for the enjoyment of others. While she did often sample her own efforts most of the finished product was lovingly given to others as gifts. If you were fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of these gifts you were in for a real treat. Anne’s other passion was Humming Birds, whether ornamental or at her bird feeders, they gave her hours of joy and entertainment.
Anne will be dearly missed by all of her family and many friends.
