Anna Marie Zepp of Saskatoon passed away at the age of 59. She was born at the Victoria Hospital in Yorkton and was eagerly and warmly greeted by her parents and three older brothers. Anna Marie spent six happy years on the family farm before they moved to Yorkton. In 1967 she attended St Alphonsis elementary school. She graduated from Sacred Heart High in 1979. Anna Marie moved to Saskatoon where she graduated in 1998 with a four year Arts degree from the University of Saskatchewan, majoring in Sociology. Due to poor health, she retired and moved into the Luther Tower in 2017. Owing to her affection and ease with older people, this proved to be one of her happiest times.
The family would like to extend our gratitude to the staff and residents who made her life at the Tower so enjoyable. Anna Marie’s last days were spent in palliative care at St Paul’s warmly cared for as she stoically dealt with a difficult and aggressive cancer. An avid reader, Anna Marie was considerate, loyal and trustworthy. She never married but children were special to her. Prior to her death, she made a generous donation to The RUN Foundation to be used towards pediatric palliative care for young cancer victims. Such a legacy gave her great comfort and attests to her generous spirit. Anna Marie was predeceased by her father John Peter Zepp in 2013. She is survived by her mother Ahaphia and her brothers John Edward, Norman William and James Gordon who greatly loved her and now miss her deeply. A memorial will be held at a later date.
