It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Anne Case. Anne died peacefully with her family by her side at Crestview Care Home in Creston, BC, at the age of 84.
Born in Czechoslovakia, she immigrated to Canada, at the age of 3 and settled in Yahk, BC with her family. Anne met William Popov and they married in 1945 and moved to Glade, BC where they settled and had a daughter Lela.
Anne was an excellent cook; she always enjoyed adding her own special touch and never completely followed a recipe. Over the years she worked as a chamber maid and was also known as a talented seamstress. This talent lead to her meeting her second husband, Stan Case. They later married and made their home in Kimberley, BC. Anne had a passion for gardening, sewing, crocheting, embroidering, crossword puzzles, playing cards and Keno. She enjoyed the outdoors, going on picnics, spending an afternoon fishing and picking huckleberries for fruit tarts.
Anne will be greatly missed by her family and friends for her kind, humble and generous spirit.
Anne was pre-deceased by her parents Emrich and Maria Falat, husbands William Popov and Stan Case, sister Mary Mann, brother Melton Falat, brother in-law Milton Mann, and son in-law Peter Poznekoff.
She is survived by her daughter Lela Poznekoff, grandchildren Stan (Bonnie) Poznekoff and Sheryl (Paul) Muntak, great grandchildren Daniel, Titiana & Nicholas Poznekoff, brothers Emery (Edna) Falat and Walter (Diane) Falat, sister in-law Marilyn Falat and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
The entire family would like to express their sincere thanks to Mark Memorial Funeral Services for their excellent service and handling of the final arrangements; Crestview Village Staff for their commitment to caring for Anne during her time there, and everyone for their condolences, flowers and cards.
As per Anne’s request a cremation has taken place and a private family memorial is scheduled for later this summer.
May you rest in peace and we will miss your smiles and laughter.
The Poznekoff and Muntak families.
