Obituary of Anne Regina Knight
April 21, 1936 – Tariverde, Romania
April 15, 2022 – Calgary, Alberta
In loving Memory of Anne Knight, we are saddened to announce her passing on Friday, April 15, 2022 at the age of 85 years.
Anne was born in Tariverde, Romania in 1936. Her young life experienced the many trials of war as her family traveled from Romania to Germany. She studied nutrition and home economics at Ebersbach vocational school (Germany). Anne immigrated to Canada in 1953 and ended up in Calgary, AB where she met her best friend Roger Knight, her husband for 64 years. Anne and Roger began their journey in Calgary then continued to Amherst, Nova Scotia; Waterford, Cape Breton; St. Mary’s & Fergus, Ontario; and back to Calgary. Anne left behind many friends and memories in her years of service to Jehovah.
Anne was loving and warm-hearted and she enjoyed her time with family, especially her grandchildren. She was an intelligent, organized, meticulous housewife and a fabulous cook. Anne loved to bake, read, sing, dance, sew, garden, and prepare beautiful dinners, often on short notice, the more the merrier. She was a “Martha Stewart” before there was a Martha Stewart. Anne enjoyed starting conversations with others and leaving people on a positive note. The past twenty years Anne carried the burden of rheumatoid arthritis, but she always had a smile for others. In her last days at the hospital her doctor said “thanks for sharing Anne with me, she is wonderful”.
Anne is survived by her husband Roger, daughter Carmen (David); and grandchildren, Ashton (Steve) and Kyle. She is also survived by her sisters, Erika, Frida (Harald) and her many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her daughter Lori Lynn; and brothers Helmut and John.
We would like to express our warmest and deepest appreciation for the extraordinary loving care and support that was given to Mom on a daily basis by the entire staff at the Intercare Chinook Care Centre Hospice. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
