January 26, 1923-Rorketon, Manitoba
November 25, 2013 – Calgary, Alberta
With sadness we announce the passing of Anne Pateman on November 25, 2013, at the age of 90 years.
Anne was born in Rorketon, Manitoba to John and Annie Dutchak, the youngest of four children. Before the War, Anne met Merv while she was working in Brandon. When Merv returned to Canada after serving overseas, Anne was waiting for him and in 1947 they were married in Hudson, Ontario. From there they moved to Fort William (Thunder Bay) Ontario, where Dale was born. They eventually settled in Calgary where Trudy was born and the family remained. Anne was an avid gardener both at home in Calgary and at the Millerville property where the family spent many weekends over many years. She loved their weekly trips to the Legion where they always shared lots of laughs with their friends. Following Merv’s passing in 2009, Anne had mobility issues and moved from her home of 55 years on 51st Avenue S.W. to Millrise Place, where she was welcomed into the Millrise family and where she remained until October of this year. The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Millrise Place, Rockyview General Hospital, and Bow Crest Long Term Care for the kind and compassionate care Anne received.
Anne is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Dale and Maureen, daughter and son-in-law Trudy and Philip Bell, grandchildren Holly (Brian) Mackenzie (Jeremy), Eric (Katherine) and Joel (Melinda), great grandchildren Sophie, Liam, Harry, Zach, Anise, Bernadette, and Logan.
