RACHEL MARY ELIZABETH ANDERSON
August 14, 1946 to March 30, 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Rachel Anderson, our mother and grandmother, who left us suddenly in her home on March 30, 2021 at the age of 74.
She is survived by her daughters, Joan (Darryl), Kim (Duane), and Paulette (Steve); grandchildren Kelsie, Tayja, Samantha, Anton, Alyna, David, Adam, and Jada; as well as her beloved cat Kiger. She was predeceased by son Jeffery, who she is now happily reunited with.
Rachel was born in Kenora, On. and lived in various Ontario and Manitoba communities before settling in Winnipeg with her young family in the 1970’s. She trained and worked in health care, bringing her gentle and kind personality to her work caring for others at St Amant Centre and Senior’s residences.
In recent years, Rachel loved spending time with her grandchildren and causing mischief with them, always with a huge smile while doing it. She also loved to watch tv series and movies, claiming with pride that she had seen every show on Netflix (which she called “Nitflix”) and sharing with enthusiasm about what she watched. Her favorite show was Heartland. She loved search and find games and to play games like Skip-Bo. Even more than playing, she liked teasing us when she won! Rachel also enjoyed time outside with her family and friends, hanging out and watching them fish with a Timmie’s coffee in hand.
It did not take much to make our mom & grandma happy and, without her, we find great sadness. She enjoyed a simple life, never wanting for much but always giving whatever she could. She will be dearly missed.
In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place along with a private family farewell.
It is the family’s hope that a larger gathering / celebration of life can be arranged in the near future (once Covid restrictions lift), details for which will be shared directly by family members. Until that time, we ask you to take a few minutes to honour her memory and share a story.
