Anna (Anne) Sachs

Anna (Anne) Sachs

On August 19, 2016 Anne Sachs slipped quietly from this world into the arms of Jesus. She was born May 10, 1921 to John and Martha Hatala at Coleman, Alberta. She had two older brothers, Joe and Louis and a younger brother, Mike. The family moved to the Crestomere District when Anne was about 10. She attended Wilmot School until she completed grade nine. She always regretted not being able to continue her schooling. She wed Fred Sachs in 1943 and to this union was born Evelyn, Arlene and Don. Fred and Anne farmed northwest of Crestomere until 1985 when they moved to Ponoka. After Fred passed away, Anne continued living in her home until she broke her hip and required more help. This began a series of moves, from her house to Reid Manor, then to Rimoka and finally ending at Northcott. Anne was loved by all who cared for her because of her sweet, gentle nature. She was predeceased by her parents and two oldest brothers and their spouses, Joe (Agnes) Hatala and Louis (Lillian) Hatala. She is survived by her brother Mike (Doreen) Hatala; children Evelyn (Harry) Bourne, Arlene (Art) Wichert, and Don (Lois) Sachs, as well as 8 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-great-grandsons. A Funeral Service will be held at the Ponoka Funeral Home on Saturday, August 27 at 2:00 p.m.. Memorial donations will be forwarded to the Kidney Foundation of Canada or a charity of your choice.
