Obituary of ANNE BUREK


January 12, 1922 – June 26, 2023

We are saddened to announce that our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great-grandmother has passed away.

While we will miss her immensely, we find solace in knowing that she is re-united with her beloved Bernie. Anne was predeceased by her husband Bernard, her parents, sister Mary and brother Harry. She is survived by sons Ronald (Maureen), James (Michelle), grandchildren Joanne (Theo), Allison (Chris), Lisa (Kevin), great grandchildren Devon, Ash, Xavier, Melody, Seth and Emily, nephew Robert (Cindy) and niece Karen and Geraldine (Trevor) and Elaine (Walter), Bernie’s nieces whom she was especially close to.

Mom and Dad spent their summers at their cottage at Eleanor Lake and winters in Florida plus many trips throughout the U.S. and Canada. Mom travelled on tours to Israel, many countries in Europe as well as Morocco. She enjoyed the “whist” card games with the Red River Seniors as well as being an avid reader.

Mom will be remembered foremost for her strength, love, and dedication to her family. She was a strong , independent, intelligent woman, whose generosity to her family affected their lives greatly.

“In the garden of life, a Mum is the most beautiful flower of all.”
