Anne Somerfeld (nee Ftoma)
Peacefully on November 23, 2017 at the Selkirk Regional Health Center with her son by her side, Anne was reunited with her husband Len.
She is survived by her son Robert; grandsons Tyler and Connor; sisters Olga and Stella and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Len; mother Pauline; father John; brothers Steve and John; sister-in-law Roberta; brothers-in-law Len and Harry.
Anne was born, grew up and attended school in Selkirk. She started working as a teller at CIBC in 1950 till 1959. She returned to CIBC in 1974 working in the mortgage dept. until she retired in 1991. Anne had many hobbies including wine making, sewing, needlepoint, curling, sculpting and decoupage but her two passions in life were gardening and cooking. Her vegetable and flower gardens were legendary. She had many friends who she provided with cabbage rolls, perogies and assorted baked goods, especially around Christmas. Anne always had a kind word or smile for everyone she met. She genuinely cared deeply about her family and friends and she took great comfort in the community of her church. Anne married her husband Len in 1958 living in Winnipeg until 1973 when they moved to St. Andrews. After Len's passing she moved to Selkirk. Anne will be deeply missed by her family and her many friends especially all the ladies of the church.
The family would like to thank the staff at Grace Hospital and the Selkirk Regional Health Center for their care and support.
A memorial service will take place on Monday, December 4 at 2:00 p.m. at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church with Pastor Erik Parker officiating.
If friends so desire donations can be made in Anne's memory to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 106 Sawchuk Dr. St. Andrews, MB R1A 4B4.
