Annika’s journey came to an end early Wednesday morning after a courageous battle with leukemia which lasted most of her short life. She had finally come home to Crossfield, and left peacefully in her favourite place, snuggled between her mom and dad, Colleen Black and Eric Tronsgard. Although leukemia kept her isolated, she touched the hearts of those she met and many who never got a chance to know her. Annika loved movies and animals and could make anyone laugh by creating her own animal sounds. She was the happiest when she was the centre of attention, which was always.
Along with her parents Annika leaves behind her grandparents, Bob and Evelyn Tronsgard, and Wayne and Arlene Black; her Uncles Doug (Corinne)and Dave Tronsgard, Terry Black and her cousin Madison Black.
A celebration of Annika’s life will be held at the Crossfield Community Hall on Monday, April 18, 2005 at 1:00 pm.
