Obituary of Anne Margy Kratzer

Please share a memory of Anne to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

KRATZER, Anne Margy

1913 - 2023

 

On Saturday, January 14, 2023, Anne Kratzer died at the age of 109, likely the oldest person in the province of Saskatchewan.

Anne was born November 13, 1913 on a train near Wood Mountain where her family homesteaded while her father worked for the CPR.

During her life Anne was a granddaughter, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother.

For many years she worked as a membership secretary for the CCF/NDP and was only able to retire when a computer could match her prodigious memory and power of recall for thousands of names and addresses.

She lived through two world wars, the Great Depression, the Cold War, and into the third decade of the new millennium, from party lines to Facetime, from horseback to intercontinental flights, from the Spanish flu to Covid.

An avid gardener, it seemed as if she could make any plant prosper in any piece of dirt she found for it. Anne’s favourite activities as a guest at one’s home were to weed and prune.

She was a great cook.  Anne’s roast goose was a work of art. She loved reading, travel and the occasional glass of scotch.

Always feisty, active and engaged, all who knew her will remember her with fondness
