July 2, 1931 - November 12, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother & Grandmother Annie Pearson (1931-2020). She will be deeply missed by her children Janine, Lorne, Brian (Linda), and Margaret & son in law Don. Her adopted children John, Jamie, & David, along with Grandchildren Kelly (Gord), Kailyn (Jorel), Kyle (Selena), Josh, Jackie & Ricky and Great Grandchildren. She is survived by Brother Ronnie and Sister Patricia. She was predeceased by her Husband Arthur, Mother Sadie, Father William, Brothers Steve & Mike.
She had many people in her life, but her neighbors at her last home on Jamison Ave. Wpg. Karen, Pete and children Shylina (Matt) & Randy, made sure she was never alone. She cared for all who arrived at her doorstep. All who had the opportunity to know her, will remember how stern, kind, and warm she was.
Mom grew up in Fisher Branch MB, in her teens the family moved to Winnipeg and resided on Beverley Street, where she met the man who was to be her husband Arthur. They wed November 6, 1954, they had 4 beautiful children together, she remained by his side until he passed away in 1998. She took his passing really hard but she had her children, grandchildren & friends to help her through that trying time.
Mom and Dad raised foster children from the late 1970 to about 1985. In that time, they fostered a lot of children, from babies to teens. The ones that were with her longest were John, Jamie, and David who became family and still are today.
Her first job she had was at Peerless Laundry which was a short job as Janine was going to be making her way into the world and soon after 3 siblings followed suit. When us kids were older, she went back to work at Winnipeg Winter Club, Continental Catering, Richardson Building Cafeteria, and St Boniface Golf Course. We really loved visiting her up at Richardson's Building Cafeteria because we could feel the building sway when it was windy.
Mom’s passions in her life were her children and grandchildren of course, but she also loved to cook, bake and pickle. She would make the best perogies in the world. I (Janine), would remember Saturdays when we were younger, we would sit and watch TV while mom would make perogies and as fast as she made them the faster, they were gone. Mom loved to craft, sew, garden, camp, and play bingo. She also played on a Shuffleboard League and Bowling League. She belonged to ANAF Club 60 on Garry Street, where her and Dad had some very special times and met a lot of people, who became great friends. In the later years she belonged to ANAF 303.
Mom and Dad built a cottage on Lee River where the whole family loved going, especially Mom, because she liked the peace and quietness of it.
Moms 3 closest friends were Joyce, Dorothy and Betty, the 4 of them would get in to trouble sometimes but it was good clean fun.
Concordia Place was her home during her last years which she loved. She said it was like being on the Titanic, the luxury part of it anyways. Thank you to all the staff at Concordia Place for taking good care of our Mother during her stay.
Annie's family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above. They also encourage the sharing of photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.
Mom may you never have an empty fridge, and may you always have perogies and headcheese for those who visit. Your memory and legacy will live on in us, her children to pass on to those that will never experience the beautiful person she was and is.
Mom may you rest in peace, you are always in our hearts, memories and minds.
You taught us so much in our life and we Thank you.
