On Sunday, August 9, 2020, at the age of 91 years, Annie Toews Friesen of Winnipeg, MB, was taken up in the arms of the angels to be with her Lord and Saviour.

It is with sadness and fond memories that we say good-bye to our wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, sister and friend.

During the final hours of her life she was surrounded by the family she spent her life caring for so very deeply. We celebrate her freedom from her suffering here on earth but know that she will leave a very empty space in our lives.
