Obituary of Anne Klippenstein
Anna (Anne) Warkentin Klippenstein
Peacefully, surrounded by her family, Mom passed into eternity to meet her Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ on March 10, 2021, at the age of 89 years.
Mom is survived and will be dearly missed by her children, Dan (Rose), Norman (Frieda), Ron (Teri), and Sandra (Gary) Trinkies. She will be greatly missed by her 13 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, her two sisters, Helen (Richard) Reimer, and Linda (Wes) Kornelsen, and her three sisters in law Anne Warkentin, Elvira Warkentin and Peggy Warkentin. She is also survived by her in laws Henry (Alma) Klippenstein, Peter (Nettie) Klippenstein, Maria Klippenstein and Shirley Klippenstein, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Mom was predeceased by her loving husband Edward on May 2, 2008 whom she missed dearly, and her three brothers, Peter, Isaac and Daniel.
Mom was born on July 25, 1931 to Isaac and Maria Warkentin of New Bothwell, Manitoba. She was baptized on the confession of her faith May 24, 1953. She married the love of her life Edward Klippenstein on May 15, 1954. They lived most of their life on a farm near Randolph, Manitoba. Mom spent her life as a homemaker and enjoyed gardening, canning, baking and cooking for her family. Mom taught us to work on the farm, which helped us to develop skills that we could use later in our lives. Mom and Dad moved to Niverville in 1986 where Mom enjoyed volunteering at the Niverville Thrift store, the church food committee and at the senior lunches at the Friendship Center.
Mom and Dad enjoyed travelling on various cruises and road trips during their retirement, the last one being to Disney World, just before Dad became ill. Mom especially enjoyed travelling to Dallas Texas to visit her sister Helen whether by car or by air. She would be ready to go anytime anyone suggested they go with her to visit her sister.
Mom was blessed, having all her grandchildren close by and was especially happy when they would drop in. Mom loved to play games with her friends and family, Skip-Bo being one of her favorites. She enjoyed having people drop by, and she always had time for a coffee, a snack or a meal.
Mom had some major health issues early in her life and through much prayer and the skillful work of her doctors she managed to live a full life. The family would like to thank the many health care professionals who cared for her over the years.
Mom deeply appreciated the staff at the Niverville Heritage Personal Care Home and we would like to thank them for the care they provided.
