Anna Davies

November 28, 1906 - January 16, 2011

Tribute

Anna Katherine Davies of Oliver passed into the arms of her Saviour on January 16, 2011 at the McKinney Place Extended Care Unit at the age of 104 years.
Anna was born on November 28, 1906 to Herbert and Johanna Fiveland. She was the first white child born near Pigeon Lake, AB. Anna was predeceased by all her brothers and sisters: Adolph, Marie, Ida, Henry, Carl, Elmer, Norman, Albert and Henry (the 2nd). She was also predeceased by her husband Jim in 1997; son-in-law George and daughter-in-law Skip (Lillian).
Anna started working at the age of 14 as a cook and housekeeper. She met her husband in Chesterwold, AB in 1924 and was married in 1926. The couple moved to the Nicola area where they raised their four children; Hazel, Glenn, Lillian and Rose.
They then moved to Oliver and started fruit farming. Anna worked in the packinghouse from 1941 – 1955 at which time she looked after her mother-in-law until her passing in 1962.
In 1992, they left their home and orchard and moved in with their daughters until they each passed away in McKinney Place.
Anna loved gardening, sewing, crossword puzzles and reading. She enjoyed her family, her church and her Lord.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Hazel, her son Glenn; daughters Lillian and Rose; her grandchildren James and Dawn (Moore); her great-grandchildren Ryan and Levi Moore as well as her many friends who called her “mom” and “grandma”.
A graveside committal service will be held at 12:30 P.M. Saturday January 22, 2011 at the Oliver Municipal Cemetery. A memorial service will then be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday January 22, 2011 at the Park Drive Church.
