Obituary

Born on April 4, 1949, in St. Front, SK, to Andre and Juliette Regie (née Moisan), Anne was the baby of the family, with three sisters and two brothers. She grew up in St. Front, Aylsham, and Watson, SK, and received most of her schooling in Watson. At the age of 20, Anne was convinced to try working at Watson Union Hospital. It was not long before Anne realized that caring for people would be her life-long passion. She married Ken Anders on July 1, 1972, and they made their family home in Watson, where they were blessed with two children. Anne was devoted to her work and community volunteer groups, while continuing to keep up with her kids’ activities and of course, allowing time for social fun. Curling, especially bonspieling; fishing; volunteering for the many Community Club functions; and ‘coffeeing’ with friends and family, were all her favorite pastimes. Until it closed in 1993, Anne worked at Watson Union Hospital for 24 years. After the closure, she completed the Home Care Course, and joined the Home Care staff. Along with this new work, Anne was the Activity Coordinator for Sunshine Manor in Watson. In 2005, Anne’s world changed when Ken passed away. She continued to work, sharing her ever-giving care, and in 2014, decided it was time for a change and started working at Futuristic Industries, and eventually moving to Humboldt. This transition was harder than she anticipated: she missed everyone and everything in Watson. In time, she grew to enjoy her new home in Humboldt, meeting new friends, and especially, being closer to her sister, Jeanette. One of Anne’s greatest joys were her six grandchildren and she enjoyed all their activities, especially hockey. She cheered loudly when they scored, or saved a goal, and was really feisty if someone hit one of her grandchildren! Continuing to work as a care provider up until her diagnosis in November 2019, Anne was more concerned about her clients being without her and when she had to stop, she felt so bad that she couldn’t be there anymore. She kept her hope alive the whole time, battling cancer, and her sense of humour right until the end.
