Anna Neufeld beloved wife of George of Airdrie, passed away on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at the age of 57 years.

Even as a child Anna was very out going, she loved both the outdoors, and animals. Anna was able to show compassion to all, and she was always very spiritual and was baptized in 1972

In 1973 she met the love of her life George and they were married in 1979, soon after they had their first son Raymund in 1980; they moved to Canada in 1983, and a year later their second son Robert was born .

Anna had struggled with mental illness for the later part of her life, but was always kind and ready to listen to anyone that needed her. Anna won, her first bout with breast cancer but it came back and hit her hard; when she found out it had become inoperable she made peace with the fact that she would not be around for long.

On her dying bed she looked at her husband and then out the window as if to greet her savoir Jesus Christ. She smiled and with her last breath, she was gone to a better place. She now looks over us and will always be in our hearts. She will be missed by all of us here that survive her.

Anna is survived by her husband George; her sons Raymond and Robert; her sisters, Lisa, Trudy, Leana, and Katrina; and her brothers, Benjamin, and Hans.

She was predeceased by parents Johan and Helean Harder; her brothers, Martin, David, Jacob, and Peter ; her sister Maria ; and brother-in-law William.
