Anne’s family is sad to announce that Mom passed away on August 18, 2014 at 92 years of age, after several years of declining health.
Anne is Mom to Carol Varcoe (Dennis), Lloyd Como (Roxanne), granny to Michele Varcoe and Kyle Como and great-granny to Kayden.
Mom was born to John and Sarah Unrau in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. She was the eldest of eight children and is survived by brothers Hank (Dot), David Unrau and sister Kay DePeel. She was preceded in death by her husband Harold in 1983 as well as brothers John, George, Peter and Jake Unrau.
Shortly after their marriage in 1943 Anne and Harold began to take an interest in bible study, and in 1948 both were baptised as Jehovah’s Witnesses. The bible’s message of an earthly paradise was great comfort to Mom, and that faith sustained her through life’s ups and downs.
Our family would like to express their gratitude to the many friends of Mom who helped her over the years. Also, Dr. Rees, the staff at the assisted living Williams Lake Seniors Village, and also the staff of the Eagle View unit of the Williams Lake Seniors Village for their excellent care of Mom during recent years.
There will be a Memorial Service August 23, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1180 Latin Avenue.
